Obtaining an Onset Crash Report After a Car Accident

You must provide information regarding the accident, the vehicle or driver involved, and your contact information, and must pay a non-refundable $20.00 fee.

Showing Another Party is Liable Following a Car Accident

If you were injured in a vehicle collision and wish to recover compensation, you must show that another party is liable for your harm, and a knowledgeable car accident lawyer serving Onset can help. The majority of plaintiffs seeking damages in a Massachusetts car accident case set forth a negligence claim against the defendants in their cases. To prove a defendant should be held liable under a theory of negligence, you must first establish that the defendant owed you a duty of reasonable care and that the defendant acted or failed to act in a manner that constituted a breach of that duty. In most car accident cases, the defendant will be a driver involved in the accident, and the duty owed is the duty to drive in a safe manner under the given circumstances. Thus, if a plaintiff can prove that the defendant breached their duty by driving too fast for the conditions, following too closely behind the car in front of him or her, or in some other unsafe manner, the plaintiff can usually establish a breach.

After the plaintiff proves that the defendant breached a duty he or she owed the plaintiff, he or she must then show that the breach was the cause of the accident and that the accident caused the plaintiff's alleged harm. To prove causation, the plaintiff does not need to show that the breach was the only cause of the accident. Instead, the plaintiff must show that the accident would not have happened but for the breach, and the breach was a significant factor in bringing about the accident. If you have been injured under these circumstances, a seasoned Onset car accident attorney can assess what claims you may be able to pursue to seek recourse for your damages.
