Discussed below are answers to typical questions that our Worcester, Massachusetts car accident lawyers and Worcester, Massachusetts personal injury attorneys have been asked during the past 25 years by our Worcester, MA clients:

Understanding Massachusetts Car Accident Injury Cases

1. What is a Massachusetts car accident injury case?

A Massachusetts car accident personal injury case involves a personal injury to a person that can be shown to be the result of another individual's or entity’s wrongdoing or mistake regarding the operation of a motor vehicle. The personal injury can be either physical or psychological or both.

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

Failure to use reasonable care when operating a Massachusetts motor vehicle amounts to negligence. Determining who was at fault in a Massachusetts car accident means figuring out which party was negligent, and thus responsible, for causing the Massachusetts motor vehicle accident. A finding of negligence by a Massachusetts judge or Massachusetts jury 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 an auto under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or violation of some other Massachusetts car accident law or rule of the road. Collisions involving Massachusetts drunk drivers may also include cases involving the Massachusetts establishments that improperly served these Massachusetts drunk drivers. Massachusetts car accidents caused by hit and run drivers can still lead to successful cases, even if the driver of the auto who caused the crash is not identified.

Massachusetts auto accidents can also be the result of 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 Massachusetts personal injuries. Massachusetts builders can also be responsible for Massachusetts construction site accidents to Massachusetts drivers. Such negligence can be based on roadway debris, inadequate safety, improper road markings and loose construction materials.

2. How do I know if my Massachusetts auto accident personal injury case is a good one?

First and foremost, you need to consult with our seasoned group of Worcester, Massachusetts car accident personal injury attorneys. Please contact our Worcester lawyers today at (617) 787-3700 or email us at gilhoylaw@hotmail.com. With a highly skilled Worcester, MA auto accident personal injury lawyer to help you, most Massachusetts claims settle without any need to go to court. In order for your Massachusetts auto accident case to be a good one, our Worcester, Massachusetts accident personal injury attorneys must prove that another party is responsible for your injuries, whether through an intentional act or as a result of negligence.

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

There are four elements to proving a Massachusetts negligence case:

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

To prove that a party or entity has been negligent with respect to a Massachusetts car accident, our Worcester, Massachusetts auto accident personal injury attorneys must first prove that the party or entity that is supposedly 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 car has a duty to exercise due care while driving that motor vehicle. If the Massachusetts driver fails to exercise reasonable care at all times, such as by not abiding by the Massachusetts rules of the road, and causes a Massachusetts car accident, that person is considered to be negligent and is responsible for all of your damages.

3. At what point should I contact a Worcester, MA car accident personal injury lawyer or a Worcester, MA wrongful death lawyer?

You should always contact a seasoned, expert Worcester, Massachusetts injury car accident lawyer as soon as you think you might have a Massachusetts auto accident injury case. This is because there are time sensitive matters that need to be taken into account in order to maintain the highest value of your Massachusetts car accident injury claim. In addition, if you wait to contact a Worcester, Massachusetts injury lawyer, you may unintentionally do something that harms your Massachusetts car accident injury claim. Please contact our Worcester lawyers today at (617) 787-3700 or email our Worcester attorneys at gilhoylaw@hotmail.com.

4. How can I determine the value of my Massachusetts auto accident personal injury case?

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

Another factor in determining the value of your Massachusetts auto accident injury claim is the amount of available insurance coverage or assets to satisfy your damages. Sometimes a Massachusetts car accident injury claim is worth a large amount of money, but there is only a limited amount of insurance coverage or assets available to pay for your damages. You should know, however, that even if there is a modest amount, or no amount, of available Massachusetts insurance coverage or assets, you should still contact our Worcester, Massachusetts car accident lawyers right away, because there are frequently ways of finding additional insurance coverage.

5. Do I really need a Worcester, MA auto accident personal injury lawyer or a Worcester, MA wrongful death lawyer for my case?

Yes.

There is the occasional Massachusetts client who, against our best advice, tries to go about settling his or her own Massachusetts car accident injury case. More often than not, that person ends up asking our Worcester lawyers to represent them before they reach a settlement. This happens because, among other reasons, the Massachusetts insurance company does not take them seriously. Massachusetts insurance companies know that our Worcester, Massachusetts auto accident injury attorneys are well aware of all aspects of Massachusetts law, that we have a good idea how much your Massachusetts auto accident injury claim is worth, and that we know how to make the Massachusetts insurance company compensate you fairly for your Massachusetts car accident injuries. Without a seasoned and highly skilled Worcester, Massachusetts auto accident injury lawyer, there is no credible threat of a lawsuit against the Massachusetts insurance company or the negligent party, and thus the Massachusetts insurance company will make every attempt to settle your Massachusetts auto accident case for as little money as possible.

For example, you may think that a $5,000.00 offer from a Massachusetts insurance company to settle your Massachusetts auto accident case is a good one, when the actual value of your Massachusetts auto claim is $25,000.00. Those Massachusetts residents who do settle their own Massachusetts car accident cases tend to settle their cases for only a fraction of what our Worcester, Mass injury attorneys typically would settle their cases for.

6. How much will a Massachusetts car accident personal injury lawyer cost me?

There is no direct out-of-pocket cost to you if you want our Worcester, Massachusetts injury attorneys to represent you in your Massachusetts car accident claim. Our Massachusetts law firm only receives a one-third contingent fee on the money we obtain for your Massachusetts injuries. So we only get paid if you get paid. Our Worcester lawyers also charge for our out-of-pocket expenses, such as paying fees for obtaining medical records and bills or paying the Sheriff’s Department to serve necessary documents. However, these litigation expenses usually accumulate to only a modest amount in comparison to the total settlement figure of your Massachusetts car accident injury case.

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

Yes. Every state, including the Commonwealth, has what is known as a statute of limitations. Such a statute sets forth the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit or settle your car accident injury case. If you wait too long, you will never be able to pursue your auto accident case. Please contact our highly skilled Worcester, Massachusetts auto accident attorneys today at (617) 787-3700 or email us at gilhoylaw@hotmail.com.

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

No. You should never talk to another person’s Massachusetts car accident insurance company if you are contacted. In talking to the Massachusetts insurance company, you may innocently hurt your Massachusetts car accident personal injury claim. You should, instead, speak with one of our seasoned Worcester, MA injury attorneys regarding your Massachusetts car accident case, and we will contact the insurance company on your behalf. All correspondence will thereafter go through our Worcester lawyers.

9. How will my Massachusetts car accident medical expenses get paid?

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

10. How long will it take to get money damages from the Massachusetts car accident insurance company?

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