A car accident is an unfortunate risk that comes with getting into an automobile. It is critical that drivers remain alert and operate their vehicles safely, vehicle manufacturers make their cars properly, and construction crews and highway officials keep roads in good condition.
State law gives a person injured in a car accident the right to seek compensation from any person or entity responsible for the crash. This typically means suing under a theory of negligence. Commonly established legal principles require a Massachusetts driver to operate their vehicle in a reasonably safe manner and to refrain from dangerous behavior like speeding, texting while driving, or drinking behind the wheel. A driver who does not live up to this duty of care is likely to be found negligent and responsible for any injuries that occur as a direct and foreseeable result. Car makers, parts manufacturers, road crews, and others also owe similar duties.
The damages that are typically available in car accident cases include compensation for medical bills, property damage, missed wages, pain and suffering, and lost enjoyment of life. To receive these damages, you need to not only prove the elements of a negligence claim but also bring your case within the applicable statute of limitations. This is a procedural rule that sets a time limit within which a victim or the family of a deceased victim must file suit after an accident. Failing to comply with this deadline generally negates the right to compensation.Contact a Skilled Car Accident Attorney in Wareham
