Even car crashes that may seem minor at first may cause significant injuries. These include brain trauma, spinal cord damage, neck and shoulder injuries, and other injuries that may make it difficult to work and limit a wide range of a victim’s daily activities. In some cases, the full extent of their injuries may not be clear immediately after a collision. However, it is essential not only to seek medical examination and treatment but also to consult an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you weigh your legal rights and options.Holding a Negligent Driver Accountable for a Car Accident
Massachusetts law gives a person injured in a car accident a right to seek compensation from a driver or another party that was responsible. For example, a driver’s dangerous behavior behind the wheel may have contributed to the crash, a car manufacturer may have released a defective vehicle that malfunctioned and caused the crash, or a road construction crew may have failed to adequately warn of dangerous conditions in the area where the accident occurred. The legal remedies typically available in car accident cases include compensation for property damage, medical bills, missed wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
The plaintiff, or the person seeking compensation, needs to show that the person or entity being sued was legally responsible for the crash. This usually means proving negligence, or the defendant’s failure to meet the appropriate standard of care under the circumstances. Drivers owe other people on the road a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. Car manufacturers similarly are required to put safe automobiles on the road. When a driver or manufacturer fails to take the proper precautions, they are likely to be found negligent. To get damages for their injuries, the plaintiff also must show that the negligence caused or contributed to the accident and that they sustained damages.Contact a Car Accident Attorney in the Sandwich Area
