When an accident happens, victims generally have the right to hold those responsible for the crash legally liable. The remedies that are typically available in these cases include damages for medical bills, missed wages, property damage, and pain and suffering, as well as the costs of future treatment if appropriate.
These cases usually revolve around claims for negligence, a legal theory under which a person or entity may be held responsible for failing to live up to a “duty of care.” For example, drivers owe other people on the road a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner, and to steer away from dangerous activities like drinking and driving, texting behind the wheel, or speeding. Auto makers and parts manufacturers also owe a duty to put safe vehicles and components on the market. A person or company that fails to meet these standards is likely to be found responsible for any accidents that occur as a result.
Car accident cases also may mean fighting insurance companies. Massachusetts law requires insurers to act with “candor and fairness” in handling claims, a standard that is usually interpreted to mean “good faith.” Unfortunately, insurance companies often try to limit or even avoid paying out legitimate claims. Some of these companies may try to take advantage of an accident victim or his or her family by pushing a low ball payout shortly after the crash. It is important that you seek the advice and counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney before considering any offers.Protect Your Rights after an Accident by Contacting a Lawyer in Truro
