At Lowney Law, LLC, our motor vehicle collision attorneys have helped numerous injured individuals throughout the Boston region in pursuing the damages that they need.
Taking Legal Action after a Car Accident
The frequent and often deadly collisions on Massachusetts roads are typically the result of a driver’s negligence. Every person in the state owes other motorists and pedestrians a duty of care, which requires drivers to operate their cars in the way that an ordinary person would handle a vehicle in a similar situation. Typical examples of failing to exercise ordinary care while driving a car include speeding during dangerous conditions, like fog, rain, or other instances of low visibility. Other examples include distracted driving and failing to yield at an intersection.
Once a violation of the duty of care has been identified, the victim must demonstrate that his or her injuries were the direct result of the defendant’s breach. This means that he or she would not have been involved in an accident if the at-fault driver had acted with the appropriate level of care. In the final stage of a negligence claim, the victim may offer evidence establishing the damages that he or she was forced to incur.
Car accident victims typically experience serious injuries, ranging from whiplash and deep muscle bruising to traumatic brain damage. If the accident caused you to miss work, or will prevent you from continuing to work at your job, you may be entitled to compensation for your loss of income and loss of future earning capacity. If the accident resulted in a serious or catastrophic injury, you may also be entitled to damages for your permanent disability or disfigurement in addition to any present and future medical treatment needed. While you are recovering from your injuries, you may need to hire additional help to handle household chores or to transport you to doctor appointments. The driver at fault for your injuries may be required to compensate you for these expenses, as well as for the subjective pain and suffering that you experienced. Lowney Law LLC is prepared to guide you through this process and help you determine which damages you are owed.
