Understanding the Impact of Car Accidents

Car accidents can have a significant impact on your physical, emotional, and financial well-being. It's important to understand the potential consequences of a car accident and the steps you can take to protect your rights and seek compensation for your injuries.

Common consequences of car accidents include:

By working with our experienced auto accident lawyers, you can have peace of mind knowing that you have a passionate advocate fighting for your rights and helping you navigate the challenges of a car crash.

Knowledgeable Advocates Providing Guidance on Insurance Claims & Litigation

Massachusetts employs a no-fault auto insurance system, meaning that people in a car accident must file a claim with their own carrier, regardless of who was at fault for the collision. You can pursue damages from the liable motorist if you incur at least $2,000 in medical expenses or suffer a severe injury involving fractured bones, substantial loss of hearing or sight, or permanent, serious disfigurement. 

Our established lawyers are well-versed in each aspect of vehicle collision litigation, including:

  • Types of crashes: It does not matter if the case involves a rear-end collision, a sideswipe, or any other kind of auto accident. Both parties often point the finger of blame at each other. When warranted, we bring on accident reconstruction experts, witnesses, and other professionals to develop a straightforward, accurate narrative detailing what occurred.
  • Collisions involving trucks, motorcycles, or pedestrians:  Special considerations exist in truck, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents or crashes involving pedestrians. Drawing on our experience in this legal field, we construct a strategy suited to the particular circumstances.
  • Available damages — When making a settlement demand, we make it based on a well-informed assessment regarding the potential recovery for medical expenses, lost income, and non-economic damages at trial. No matter how intimidating or aggressive your opponents seem, we won’t let you be bullied into an unfair resolution. We will consult with insurers on your behalf, denying them the opportunity to use your words against you.

Car Accidents Caused by Texting & Driving

Texting and driving is a serious issue. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving is responsible for more than 3,000 deaths yearly in the United States, with 3,142 fatalities in 2020. In Massachusetts alone, there were over 1,675 crashes attributed to distracted driving, 204 of which were fatal, from 2015 to 2019. Texting and driving is an offense the law takes more seriously by the day. In fact, Massachusetts passed a hands-free driving law in 2020 aimed at reducing these tragic, avoidable incidents. 

A first offense for violating the Massachusetts hands-free driving law is $100, and penalties increase after that. Still, motorists continue texting while driving, holding their cell phones, and engaging in other behaviors that distract their attention from the road. Though police accident reports are supposed to note if a driver was operating their phone at the time of the collision, this detail is often missed. If you believe that texting or another distraction contributed to your serious auto accident injury, we’ll conduct a thorough investigation to seek the truth.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Do I need a lawyer for a car accident claim in Chelsea, MA?

    While it's possible to handle a car accident claim on your own, having a knowledgeable auto accident lawyer on your side can significantly improve your chances of obtaining fair compensation. An attorney can navigate the complexities of the legal process, negotiate with insurance companies, and advocate for your best interests.

  • What types of compensation can I seek after a car accident?

    After a car accident, you may be eligible to seek compensation for various damages, including medical expenses, lost income, property damage, pain and suffering, and more. An experienced car crash attorney can help you understand the full scope of compensation available in your specific case.

  • How long do I have to file a car accident claim in MA?

    In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations for filing a car accident claim is generally three years from the date of the accident. However, it's advisable to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to ensure all deadlines and requirements are met.

  • What should I do immediately after a car accident?

    After a car accident, it's essential to prioritize your safety and the safety of others involved. Call 911 to report the accident and seek medical attention for any injuries. If possible, gather information from the other parties involved, including their names, contact information, and insurance details. It's also important to document the scene by taking photos and getting contact information from any witnesses.

  • Should I communicate with the other driver’s insurance company, or should I leave that to an attorney?

    When you are involved in a car accident, knowing your rights and responsibilities is important. It is generally recommended that you consult an attorney before communicating with the insurer of the driver who hit you. This is because insurance companies may try to take advantage of you by offering a settlement that does not cover all of your damages or losses. We can help you understand your legal options and seek a fair settlement offer.

  • Why should I hire a personal injury attorney to help with my auto accident claim?

    We know the laws surrounding auto accidents and have experience dealing with insurance companies. We can help you understand the complexities of filing a claim, like gathering evidence to support your case and negotiating with insurance companies for a fair settlement. We can also provide guidance on maximizing your recovery by considering any potential sources of compensation such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering damages, or other losses related to the accident.

  • How long will my car accident case take to resolve?

    The time it takes to resolve a car accident case in Massachusetts can vary depending on several factors. Generally speaking, the more complicated the case is, the longer it may take to resolve. For example, if multiple parties are involved or there are disputed facts related to liability or damages, your case could take many months or even years to resolve fully.

  • How much is my auto accident case worth?

    If you’ve been involved in a car accident in Massachusetts, you may wonder how much your case is worth. The value of a car accident case depends on several factors, including the severity of your injuries and the amount of damages you have suffered. In Massachusetts, all drivers must carry auto insurance policies covering $20,000 per person in bodily injury liability coverage. If you are injured in an accident caused by another driver, their insurance company will pay up to $20,000 for your medical bills and other related expenses. In addition to the amount covered by the at-fault driver’s insurance policy, you may also be able to recover compensation for pain and suffering or lost wages from your own personal injury protection (PIP) car insurance coverage. PIP covers medical expenses and lost wages up to $8,000, regardless of who was at fault for the accident.
