Improper Passing Accidents

Car Crash Lawyers Advocating for Victims on Cape Cod

The personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III represent victims who have been injured in a wide range of motor vehicle collisions, including improper passing accidents. Our Cape Cod car accident attorneys draw on nearly 150 years of combined experience to help clients pursue the full compensation available under the law. We know how to craft compelling arguments in these cases, and we understand how to gather and present many forms of evidence in a persuasive manner. We are committed to guiding clients through the process, keeping them informed of their rights and options at every step of the way.

Proving Negligence Following an Improper Passing Accident

If you have been injured in an improper passing crash, you have a right to seek compensation from a driver or anyone else who was responsible for the collision. The damages usually available in Massachusetts car crash cases include compensation for medical bills (current and future), property damage, lost income and earning capacity, and pain and suffering, among other examples. Sometimes, the family members of a person injured in an accident may also seek “loss of consortium” damages, which are designed to compensate them for the loss of their loved one’s companionship and guidance. They also have a right to sue for wrongful death in tragically fatal accident cases.

To assert your right to damages, you need to prove that the defendant who caused the accident was negligent. State law requires drivers to operate their cars in a reasonably safe manner, living up to what courts call a “duty of care.” This includes the responsibility to wait to pass at an appropriate time. A driver who moves into oncoming traffic to make an improper pass not only violates the laws of the road but also puts their own and other peoples’ safety at risk. Such a driver is likely to be deemed negligent and legally responsible for any injuries that result.

A person seeking damages also needs to provide detailed evidence to show that the driver’s negligence directly caused the crash and that their damages can be reasonably quantified. This involves compiling medical records depicting the extent of the injuries and tying them to the crash. It also may require getting experts to weigh in on any future medical bills and missed wages that you might incur as a result of the improper passing accident.
