Massachusetts law gives a person involved in a car accident the right to seek compensation from people or entities to blame for the crash. The money damages often available in car accident cases include reimbursement for medical bills, property damage, missed wages, and any reduction in your future earning capacity stemming from injuries sustained in the collision. In many cases, a person injured in a car accident can also seek additional damages for pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
People who were partly at fault for a car crash should be aware that they may still be able to get a reduced amount of compensation for their injuries. The modified comparative negligence rule that is used in Massachusetts allows a person who is found to be less than 51 percent responsible for the accident in which they were injured to get a proportionate share of the damages from any other parties that are deemed liable. A car accident attorney can assist Provincetown residents with making sure that the defendant is held fully liable to the degree that is appropriate.
It is also important to understand that Massachusetts personal injury cases are subject to a three-year statute of limitations. That means that an injured person generally has three years from the date of the accident to file suit. The investigation required to identify the parties to blame for an accident can be extensive. It is important to seek the counsel of a seasoned personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
To obtain compensation for your injuries, your Provincetown car accident attorney will need to prove that the driver who caused the crash (or another responsible person or entity) was negligent. State law imposes a “duty of care” on drivers, requiring them to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. That means maintaining appropriate speeds, obeying traffic signs, and refraining from drinking and driving or texting when they are driving. A driver who does not respect and adhere to that duty is likely to be liable for any injuries that occur as a result of a crash.
To successfully prove liability, you also need to show that you were injured in the accident. Medical evidence and doctor testimony can go a long way in tying specific injuries to the crash and explaining the full extent of those impairments.Talk with a Seasoned Car Accident Lawyer in Provincetown
