What Should I Do Immediately Following An Accident?

Immediately following an auto accident in Worcester County, you need to protect your health and your future. Here are the steps you should take:

  • Immediately prioritize safety by checking yourself and your passengers for injuries and moving to a safe location if possible.
  • Call emergency services to report the accident and seek medical attention for any injuries, no matter how minor.
  • If possible, document the scene by taking photos of the damage to the vehicles, their positions, any debris in the road or skid marks and the surroundings.
  • Exchange contact and insurance information with the other parties involved, but refrain from discussing fault or engaging in conversation.
  • Contact an experienced car accident lawyer. We can guide you through the legal process, handle communication with the insurance companies and help you seek the maximum compensation for medical bills, property damage and other losses.

How Is Fault Determined In A Massachusetts Car Accident?

In Massachusetts, fault in a car accident, such as a rear-end accident, is determined based on negligence laws and the circumstances surrounding the collision. This involves assessing the actions of each party involved and determining who acted negligently or recklessly.

Law enforcement considers factors such as traffic laws, speed, sudden stops, road conditions, visibility and driver behavior. Massachusetts follows a modified comparative fault system, meaning compensation may be reduced if the injured party is found partially at fault. However, the injured party can still recover damages so long as their share of the fault is less than 51%.

In Worcester County, those involved in auto accidents should seek legal guidance from an experienced car accident lawyer. Our lawyers can help navigate the complexities of Massachusetts negligence laws, gather evidence, handle negotiations with insurance companies and help you obtain the maximum compensation for your medical bills, property damage and other losses.

How We Can Help You

Our Massachusetts personal injury attorneys believe in starting the accident investigation as soon as possible, in order to preserve evidence at the crime scene, take photos and get statements from eyewitnesses while their memories are still fresh. We thoroughly examine all possibilities of negligence, including defective guardrails or faulty auto parts.

Remember to never make statements or sign anything with an insurance company before speaking with our lawyers, because insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind as we do.

When we take your case to court, we use the latest in technology to show the judge and jury the extent of your pain and suffering. Our resources include board-certified physicians, insurance professionals, videographers who put together “Day in the Life” tapes and more.
