Distracted and dangerous driving is an unfortunate hazard of life on the road. Whether it is a rear-end accident on a busy highway or a side-impact crash at an intersection, collisions can cause serious injuries and even death. This is why state law gives people injured in car accidents the right to seek compensation from those responsible for the crash. Although negligent drivers are often to blame, auto manufacturers and parts makers may also share some responsibility.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident in Massachusetts, you can take legal action to pursue economic and non-economic damages. The compensation typically available in car accident cases includes money for medical bills, property damage, missed wages, and reduced earning capacity. Additional compensation for pain, suffering, and emotional distress is also often available in these cases. In the event that a person is killed in a crash, his or her family also has the right to seek similar compensation for wrongful death. Our car accident attorneys can help Pembroke residents ensure that they pursue all of the damages to which they are legally entitled.
Massachusetts car accident cases are most often based on claims of negligence. State law imposes what courts call a “duty of care” on drivers in Massachusetts. They are generally required to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. That means refraining from dangerous activities like speeding, disregarding traffic signs, texting behind the wheel, and drinking and driving. A driver who does not live up to this duty is likely to be found negligent and legally responsible for any injuries that happen as a result.
To prove negligence, your Pembroke car accident attorney needs to show that the person or entity that you are suing violated the applicable duty of care. We also would need to show that this directly caused you to be injured. Witness testimony and police statements can often go a long way in establishing how a specific collision happened. Medical evidence is equally crucial in proving the extent of your injuries.Seek Legal Representation in Pursuing Compensation
