If you have been injured in a car accident, you have a right to seek compensation from a careless driver or anyone else who may have been responsible. The money damages available in these cases typically include compensation for medical bills, property damage, missed wages, and pain and suffering, as well as future costs. Some of that compensation may be available even if you were partly to blame for the crash. Massachusetts car accident law operates under a modified comparative negligence system that allows a person to sue for at least some damages, as long as they are not determined to be 51 percent or more at fault for the crash.
To get damages, you probably will need to bring a claim based on a theory of negligence, which is designed to hold people and entities liable for failing to live up to a specific “duty of care.” Drivers owe other people on the road a duty to operate their vehicles in a relatively safe manner. Construction crews are expected to warn motorists of roadwork and to avoid creating hazards when doing that work. Auto manufacturers are required to make cars that are safe and not overly prone to malfunctions. When these parties fail to live up to those duties, they are likely to be liable for any injuries that result from the accidents that they cause.Contact a Car Accident Attorney in the Orleans Area
Straddling both the Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Orleans is a charming New England town known for its quiet coastal aesthetic. The area was first settled by Native Americans of the Nauset tribe and later settled by Plymouth Colony Pilgrims in 1693. Today, it is a popular summertime destination, thanks to stunning beaches, historical sites, and a delightful downtown.
