Massachusettes' Car Accident Attorneys

An auto accident can leave you injured and facing expensive repair and medical bills, all because someone else wasn’t careful on the road. You need legal representation to fight for your right to compensation for your injuries, investigate the cause of your accident, and prove that the other party involved is liable for your suffering. Our experienced team at Brooks Law will work with you to build a strong case on your behalf.

Auto Accident Injuries

The injuries sustained in an accident can range from mild bruising and soreness to life-threatening injuries. Even seemingly mild injuries can have lasting consequences. More serious injuries can require lengthy hospital stays and recovery time, multiple surgeries, rehabilitation, and changes to your living situation. These changes may include retrofitting your home to be accessible, moving to a more accessible home, or even requiring around-the-clock care from a nurse or caretaker.

Injuries sustained in auto accidents vary widely, but common injuries are:

  • Fractures
  • Whiplash
  • Limb injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Chest injuries
  • Ligament damage
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

These injuries can be life-changing, but even minor injuries may result in a loss of income, expensive medical bills, and pain and suffering. Getting compensation for your injuries is highly important for aiding your recovery. A skilled auto accident lawyer can advise you through the process of filing a claim and can build a case to maximize the compensation you are able to recover.

Proving Liability

In order to file for compensation, you will need to prove that the other driver is responsible for your injuries. Proving who is responsible for your accident can be a difficult task and one which requires an in-depth knowledge of the law. Your attorney will investigate the accident for you and can use the evidence available to show how the other party is at fault for the accident. Establishing fault can require you or your lawyer to prove that the other driver was negligent in some form, such as speeding, running a stoplight, driving drunk, or other causes.

Your case will rely on evidence to prove negligence. An experienced car accident attorney will know what questions to ask to find all the details of your case and prove that you were not to blame for the accident. This can include interviewing eyewitnesses, reviewing security or traffic camera footage, analyzing the damage to the vehicles involved, and consulting experts. They will work from the evidence available to reconstruct the events of the accident and defend you.

Once fault is proven, insurance companies will frequently offer far less than you deserve for your settlement. Your lawyer can advise you in your negotiations for a higher settlement. If the other party’s insurance company refuses to offer a reasonable settlement, your attorney can also handle the litigation aspect of your fight for compensation.
