Car accidents happen in a wide variety of ways and may be caused by a number of different factors, ranging from severe weather and hazardous road conditions to driver error and illegal behavior like drinking behind the wheel. No matter the circumstances, a person injured in a crash has a right to seek compensation from anyone who was responsible. They may be able to recover both economic and non-economic damages, such as lost income and earning capacity, past and future medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Even in cases in which an injured person may have been partly to blame for an accident, they may still be able to get some damages if they are found to be less than 51 percent to blame for causing the crash.Proving Negligence in a Car Accident Case
If it is another driver who was to blame for the crash, you usually need to sue that person for negligence in order to be compensated. Drivers owe everyone on the road a “duty of care” under state law, which requires them to refrain from dangerous behavior behind the wheel. This involves maintaining proper speeds, obeying traffic signs, using turn signals, and avoiding dangerous activities like texting and driving. A driver who does not live up to this duty and causes a crash is likely to be deemed negligent. Our car accident lawyers can assist Marshfield residents with proving the liability of a careless driver.Carmaker Liability
Car manufacturers and parts makers may also be liable for crashes in some cases. Cars and auto parts are sold with an implied “warranty of merchantability” in Massachusetts. This makes the retailer automatically liable for injuries caused by a defective product that was used in a reasonably foreseeable way. To prove this form of liability, you need to show that there was a specific defect in the car or an auto part that directly contributed to the crash.Discuss Your Case with a Car Accident Attorney in the Marshfield Area
