A person who is injured in a car crash in Massachusetts has a right to seek compensation from anyone who was responsible, even if they were also partly at fault for the collision. The state operates under a modified comparative fault system. As long as the injured person is not found to have been 51 percent or more at fault for the accident, they can potentially still recover some damages based on proportionate fault. These damages typically include money for medical bills and missed wages caused by time away from the job while recovering from injuries. They may also cover non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional distress.
To secure this compensation, a person injured in an accident usually needs to sue any parties responsible for negligence. State law requires drivers to operate their cars in a reasonably safe manner. A driver who fails to live up to this responsibility – by speeding, drinking and driving, or failing to obey traffic signals, for example – is negligent and likely to be liable for any injuries that occur as a result. The injured person will try to show that the driver’s negligence caused the crash and document specific injuries with medical evidence.
State law also obligates car manufacturers and parts makers to put safe products on the road. A company that fails to do so may be held responsible for any injuries caused by a defective or malfunctioning product.Explore Your Options with an Attorney After a Falmouth Car Accident
