What Compensation Am I Entitled To?

An insurance claim will only cover economic damages. Economic damages are meant to compensate people for tangible losses that can be easily quantified, such as medical bills, hospital visits, property damage, doctor visits, etc. If you seek funeral expenses on behalf of a loved one or compensation for lost wages due to the accident, you must file a lawsuit.

Non-economic damages are not covered by insurance. Non-economic losses include intangible, often subjective losses like loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. You must file a personal injury lawsuit to seek compensation for these damages, which we can help you with. 

Additionally, in rare cases, you may be able to cover punitive damages. These damages are considered punishment for the drunk driver and are designed to discourage others from making the same mistake. These are given on a case-by-case basis. If there is a possibility to seek punitive damages, we will do so on your behalf; however, the process may delay the outcome of your lawsuit.

No-Fault States and Liability

In a no-fault state like Massachusetts, if you are injured in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, your own insurance company will pay for your medical expenses and certain other expenses related to your injuries, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. This is because PIP coverage is still applicable, regardless of whether the other driver was intoxicated.

However, if your injuries are severe or your medical expenses exceed the limits of your PIP coverage, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the drunk driver. In this case, you would need to show that the other driver's intoxication was the cause of the accident and your injuries.

Massachusetts law also allows injured parties to seek compensation for additional damages in cases where the driver who caused the accident was operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol. These damages may include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and other losses resulting from the accident.
