If you have been injured in a car accident, you have the right to seek compensation from those responsible for the crash. This is often a driver whose dangerous behavior behind the wheel caused the accident. Liability may also extend to auto and parts manufacturers whose shoddy products malfunctioned. The damages typically available in these cases include compensation for medical bills, property damage, missed wages, and pain and suffering. Getting these damages usually means haggling with insurance companies and may require filing a lawsuit. A seasoned car accident attorney can help Taunton residents aggressively assert their rights.
Most car crash cases involve claims of negligence. State law imposes a duty of care on drivers that requires them to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe way under the circumstances. This means that drivers are expected to refrain from dangerous activities like speeding, failing to obey traffic signs, or getting behind the wheel while intoxicated. A driver who does not live up to this duty is likely to be found negligent and liable for any injuries that happen as a result. The injured person needs to show that the negligence directly caused the crash and tie their injuries directly to the collision.
Auto and parts sellers, meanwhile, are covered by a warranty of merchantability in Massachusetts. This means that a retailer is automatically liable for any injuries caused by a defective product used in a reasonably foreseeable way. To prove liability under the warranty of merchantability, you need to show that there was a specific defect in an auto part that directly contributed to the crash. You then need to detail the injuries caused by the crash. As in negligence cases, this often requires detailed information about how the accident happened. Medical records explaining the full extent of the injuries and how they were caused are also central to a successful case.Contact a Dedicated Car Accident Lawyer in Taunton
