Understanding Massachusetts Automobile Accident Injury Claims

1. What is a Massachusetts auto accident personal injury claim?

A Massachusetts auto accident injury claim involves an injury to a person that can be shown to be the result of another individual's or entity’s wrongdoing, negligence or intentional act regarding the operation of an automobile. The injury can be physical or psychological.

In order for our Boston, MA auto accident attorneys to make a claim for your personal injuries as a result of your Massachusetts car accident, certain requirements must successfully be met. Under Massachusetts personal injury law, we must first show that the other party was at fault for the Massachusetts auto accident and your injuries. This requires a thorough understanding of the Massachusetts rules of the road, about which our Boston, MA auto injury lawyers are experts. In a Massachusetts wrongful death claim, our expert Boston wrongful death lawyers must also demonstrate the fault of the other party.

Failure to use reasonable care while operating a motor vehicle constitutes negligence. Determining who was at fault in a Massachusetts auto accident means figuring out who was negligent, and thus responsible, for causing the Massachusetts accident. A finding of negligence is often based on an operator’s failure to obey Massachusetts traffic signs or signals, failure to signal when turning, failure to follow the Massachusetts speed limit, driving a car under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, or violation of some other Massachusetts auto accident law. Collisions involving Massachusetts drunk drivers may also include claims involving the establishments that served these Massachusetts drunk drivers. Massachusetts auto accidents caused by hit and run drivers can still lead to claims, even if the driver of the car who caused the crash is not identified.

Massachusetts car accidents can also result from faulty construction of Massachusetts roads, Massachusetts tunnels, embankments, exits and inadequate lighting. If the Massachusetts roadway is defectively designed or improperly constructed, the designers or builders may be liable for your injuries. Builders can also be responsible for Massachusetts construction accidents to drivers, including roadway debris, inadequate safety, improper road markings and loose construction materials.

2. How do I know if my Massachusetts car accident injury claim is a good one?

Most importantly, you need to consult with our experienced team of Boston auto accident injury attorneys. Please contact us today at (617) 787-3700 or email us at With an expert Boston car accident injury lawyer to help you, most Massachusetts cases settle without any need to go to Court. In order for your Massachusetts car accident claim to be a good one, our Boston, Massachusetts accident injury lawyers must prove that another party is responsible for your injuries, whether through an intentional act or negligence.

An intentional act which causes you injury is pretty self-explanatory. Negligence, on the other hand, is a little more complicated.

There are four elements to proving negligence:

  1. Duty
  2. Breach
  3. Causation
  4. Damages

To prove that a party has been negligent with respect to a Massachusetts auto accident, our Massachusetts car accident injury attorneys must first prove that the party responsible for your injuries had a duty to you, and that they breached that duty and caused your injuries.

For example, the driver of a Massachusetts automobile has a duty to exercise reasonable care while driving that vehicle. If the Massachusetts driver fails to exercise reasonable care, by not abiding by the Massachusetts rules of the road, and causes a Massachusetts auto accident, that person was negligent and is responsible for your damages.

3. How can I determine the value of my Massachusetts car accident injury claim?

Determining the value of your Massachusetts automobile accident injury claim is complicated for many reasons, and is usually not possible at the beginning of the case. One reason is because insurance companies often dispute that their insured is responsible for your injuries, or they claim that their insured is only partially responsible.

Another factor in determining the value of your Massachusetts car accident case is the amount of available insurance coverage or assets. Sometimes a Massachusetts auto accident case can be worth a large amount of money, but there is only a limited amount of insurance coverage or assets available to pay for your damages. However, you should know that even if you believe that there is a small amount, or no amount, of available insurance coverage or assets, you should still contact our Boston, Massachusetts auto accident law firm right away, because there are often ways of finding additional coverage, whether it is through the state or another entity.

4. At what point should I contact a Boston auto accident injury attorney or a Boston wrongful death lawyer?

You should always contact an experienced Massachusetts personal injury auto accident attorney as soon as you think you might have a Massachusetts car accident personal injury claim, because there are time sensitive matters that need to be taken care of in order to maintain the maximum value of your Massachusetts auto accident case. In addition, if you wait to contact a Massachusetts personal injury lawyer, you may unintentionally do something that hurts your auto accident case.

5. Do I really need a Boston, MA car accident injury lawyer or a Boston wrongful death attorney?


There is the occasional person who, against our advice, tries to go about settling their own Massachusetts auto accident personal injury claim. More often than not, that person ends up asking us to represent them before they reach a settlement. This happens because, among other reasons, the insurance company does not take them seriously. Insurance companies know that our Massachusetts car accident personal injury attorneys are well aware of Massachusetts law, that we have a good idea how much your Massachusetts car accident case is worth, and that we know how to make the insurance company pay you fairly for your Massachusetts auto accident injuries. Without an experienced Boston car accident personal injury lawyer, there is no threat of a lawsuit against the Massachusetts insurance company, and thus the insurance company will make every attempt to settle your Massachusetts car accident claim for as little money as possible.

For example, you may think that a $5,000.00 offer from an insurance company to settle your Massachusetts car accident claim is a good one, when the true value of your case is $25,000.00 or more. Those who do settle their own Massachusetts auto accident claims tend to settle for only a fraction of what our Boston personal injury lawyers typically would settle their claims for.

6. How much will a Massachusetts auto accident injury attorney cost me?

There is no direct out-of-pocket cost to you if you want our Massachusetts personal injury attorneys to represent you in your Massachusetts auto accident personal injury case. Our Boston law office receives a one-third contingent fee on the money we recover for your injuries. So we only get paid if you get paid. We also charge for our out-of-pocket costs, such as paying fees for obtaining medical records and bills or paying the Sheriff’s Department to serve documents. However, these costs usually accumulate to only a small amount in comparison to the total settlement of your Massachusetts auto accident personal injury claim.

7. Is there a time limit in order to make a Massachusetts car accident claim for injuries incurred in a Massachusetts automobile accident?

Yes. Every state, including Massachusetts, has what is called a Statute of Limitations. This Statute sets forth how much time you have to file or settle your auto accident personal injury claim. If you wait too long, you will not be able to pursue your car accident claim at all. Please contact our expert Boston car accident lawyers today at (617) 787-3700 or email us at

8. Should I talk to the other person’s Massachusetts auto insurance company if they contact me?

No. You should not talk to another person’s Massachusetts auto accident insurance company if you are contacted. In talking to the insurance company, you may unintentionally hurt your Massachusetts auto accident injury case. You should speak with our experienced Boston, MA personal injury lawyers regarding your Massachusetts auto accident claim, and we will contact the insurance company on your behalf. All correspondence will thereafter go through us.

9. How long will it take to get money from the Massachusetts automobile insurance company?

This question is as hard to answer as the value of your Massachusetts auto accident injury claim. There are many factors that come into play as to when the Massachusetts insurance company will pay. An insurance company may take the position that their insured is not responsible for your injuries resulting from the Massachusetts auto accident until trial, and then decide to make a decent offer, which could take years, or your Massachusetts auto accident claim could settle in two months after gathering your evidence. It depends on all of the facts surrounding your Massachusetts auto accident case and the position that the Massachusetts insurance company takes.

10. How will my Massachusetts auto accident medical bills get paid?

If you are injured in a Massachusetts car accident, and it is somebody else’s fault, chances are that most, if not all, of your medical bills will be paid by the various types of insurance that are available. However, in most cases, Massachusetts insurance companies don’t seek out the bills that they are responsible for, and you could end up footing the bill. It is extremely helpful to you to have our Massachusetts car accident injury attorneys make sure that the parties responsible for paying your medical bills do so in a timely fashion, so that your credit isn't damaged and you are not left responsible for paying the bills.
