Injuries Caused by Ejection from Vehicle

Car Accident Lawyers Vigorously Advocating for Cape Cod Victims

The injury lawyers at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III help people involved in a car crash get the money that they need to get back on their feet. With more than 150 years of legal experience among us, we understand the tactics that insurance companies use to try to limit payouts, and we know what judges and juries often find helpful in deciding these cases. Our track record of success speaks for itself. Our Cape Cod car accident lawyers have helped clients obtain a number of six- and seven-figure settlements and verdicts in motor vehicle collision and other personal injury matters.

There are a number of ways that people can be hurt in auto accidents, but injuries caused by ejection from a vehicle are among the most serious. Ejections often happen in high-speed accidents in which the velocity of the cars and the force of the collision are so strong that they throw people from the vehicle. That can end in broken bones, brain injuries, amputations, and even death in some tragic cases.

Compensation for Injuries Caused by Ejection from a Vehicle

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident in Massachusetts, you have the right under state law to seek compensation from those responsible. Your remedies may include money damages for current and future medical costs, property damage, missed wages, and any reduction in earning capacity related to your injuries. They also may include money for your pain and suffering. In the unfortunate event that a person dies after being ejected from a vehicle, his or her family can seek similar compensation through a wrongful death claim.

Even if you are partly to blame for a crash, you may still be able to get some compensation for your injuries. Massachusetts’ modified comparative negligence system allows a person who is found to be less than 51 percent at fault for a collision to potentially get a proportionate share of the damages from the other responsible parties.

To get compensation for your injuries, your attorney typically must prove that a driver or some other person or entity was negligent and that this negligence caused the crash. Negligence is based on what courts and lawyers call a “duty of care.” Drivers owe other people on the road a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. Drivers are expected to obey traffic signs and laws and to steer away from dangerous activity like drinking and driving or using a cell phone behind the wheel. A driver who does not live up to this duty is likely to be found negligent and responsible for any accidents that he or she causes as a result.

If you are considering suing for negligence related to a car accident, it is important to keep in mind the legal time limit for filing a lawsuit. You generally have three years from the date of the accident to file the case. Therefore, you should consult an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Do not agree to any settlement with an insurance company without talking to a lawyer first.
