Pin-in Car Accidents

Cape Cod Lawyers Representing Motor Vehicle Collision Victims

The Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III advocates for people injured in pin-in car accidents and a wide range of other car crashes on Cape Cod. We offer more than a century and a half of combined legal experience in personal injury cases and know what it takes to help clients get the full compensation available under the law. We are familiar with the techniques that insurance companies often use to avoid paying claims and can devise a strategy to fight them. Our Cape Cod car accident lawyers also understand how to present cases to judges and juries in a convincing way. Our track record of success includes a number of six- and seven-figure settlements in personal injury matters.

Pin-in crashes are car accidents in which the victims involved are stuck inside the wreckage of a vehicle. These collisions often require emergency responders to use heavy equipment – like a “jaws of life” machine – to extricate a person from his or her car. They can be very serious crashes that cause severe injuries, including broken bones or head, neck, and back injuries, and even death in some cases.

Legal Remedies for Pin-In Car Accidents

Massachusetts law gives people injured in car crashes in this state the right to seek compensation for their injuries from those responsible for the collision. This is often a negligent driver – and his or her employer, in some instances ¬– but also may include carmakers that put shoddy products on the road or construction crews who leave driving areas in a hazardous condition.

The money damages usually available in car accident cases include compensation for doctors’ bills related to the crash, automobile and other property damage, missed wages due to time away from work, and any reduction in your future earning capacity caused by the collision. People injured in car crashes can also seek additional compensation for pain, suffering, and emotional distress. In the tragic case that a person dies in a pin-in car accident or another crash on Cape Cod, an attorney can help their family seek money damages for wrongful death. That legal claim is designed to give the loved ones of an accident victim the same sort of compensation that would have been available had he or she survived the crash.

The Duty of Care

To get compensation, you usually need to sue one or more defendants for negligence. State law requires drivers to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. That means obeying traffic laws and following traffic signals and signs. It also means refraining from dangerous activities like drinking and driving or texting behind the wheel. A driver who does not live up to this “duty of care” is likely to be found negligent and liable for any injuries that happen as a result.

To prove negligence, you need to show that the party that you are suing did not comply with the duty of care. You also need to prove that the negligence directly caused the accident, and this caused you to be injured. Police reports and eyewitness accounts of the crash can often go a long way in establishing how it occurred. In some cases, we have found it useful to enlist accident reconstruction experts to explain what happened. Meanwhile, medical records and doctor statements are critical to detailing the extent of your injuries.
