Whether it is a seemingly simple two-vehicle collision on a neighborhood road or a multiple-car highway pile up, a car crash can cause serious injuries like paralysis, head trauma, and even death. For a person injured in a crash, the aftermath often means that you may not be able to work while medical bills begin to stack up. Moreover, auto insurers are regularly slow to pay out claims or bend over backwards to try to get you to settle them for pennies on the dollar. As a result, you need to get an experienced personal injury lawyer in your corner.
Massachusetts law gives a person injured in an accident the right to seek compensation from those responsible for the crash, whether this is a negligent driver (and possibly the driver’s employer) or a road crew that failed to warn of dangers ahead. A car accident attorney in the Middleboro area can help you determine which parties may be held liable. The money damages usually available in these cases include compensation for doctors’ expenses, missed wages, property damage, and also pain and suffering. In the tragic case in which a person is killed in a crash, their loved ones have the right to sue for wrongful death.Proving Negligence
To obtain money damages, you generally need to show that the person or entity responsible for the crash was negligent. Drivers in Massachusetts, for example, owe others on the road a “duty of care” to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. This means refraining from drinking and driving, speeding, using a cell phone, and engaging in other dangerous activity behind the wheel. A driver who does not live up to this responsibility is likely to be deemed negligent and held liable for any injuries caused as a result.
To prove negligence, you will be required to show not only that the person whom you are suing did not live up to the duty of care, but also that this negligence directly caused the accident and that the accident directly caused your injuries. This may require significant evidence showing how the crash happened and medical documentation proving the extent of your injuries. A Middleboro car accident attorney can help you collect the evidence that you need.Fighting for Clients in Middleboro
