You understandably expect other drivers on the road to be responsible. But there are many distractions that result in car accidents every day. If another driver’s negligence results in an accident and you get hurt, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and financial losses.
A distracted driving accident lawyer from GED Lawyers can help you seek compensation and handle your legal case in Massachusetts so you can focus on your recovery. Our personal injury lawyers can handle your case from start to finish.
A Distracted Driving Accident Attorney Can Recover Damages in Massachusetts
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that nine people die in the United States every day because of distracted driving. Even more people end up with injuries that require medical attention.
From minor injuries such as cuts and bruises to severe injuries such as concussion, paralysis, and broken bones, a car accident can leave you with staggering medical bills and the inability to earn an income. A car accident can also leave you with deep psychological injuries that can take years from which to recover.
As a no-fault state, personal injury protection insurance (PIP) will cover your losses in Massachusetts, no matter who is at fault for the accident.
Potential compensation covers damages, including:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages and benefits
- Home services
- Child care
- Physical therapy
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Psychological trauma
- Loss of enjoyment
- Future medical bills
- Reduced earning capacity
PIP does not cover property damage but will cover your other expenses and losses, including those suffered by passengers or someone else who drives your vehicle. PIP also covers funeral expenses. If you lost someone you love in a car accident, we are sincerely sorry for your loss. We understand you need time to grieve, which is why we want to handle your case so you can take that time.
There are no caps on damages in Massachusetts, and our firm has won multi-million dollar settlements for victims like you. Compensation can help you regain a sense of normalcy in your life so you can begin the rebuilding process. An attorney from our firm is ready to fight for you.
Your Massachusetts Distracted Driving Lawyer Can Benefit Your Case
After seeking appropriate medical attention in the wake of a car accident, the next thing we urge you to do is to consult with a personal injury attorney who can advise you on your options. We will guide you through the legal process step by step, and your lawyer will be your advocate protecting your best interests.
In the event that the insurance provider denies your claim having your own attorney evens the playing field since the provider will have their own lawyers. Battling the insurance company for compensation is intimidating. A lawyer can fight for compensation on your behalf with the resources of our firm at your service.
If you hire our firm, you can expect your attorney to benefit your case by:
- Investigating the accident: Your Massachusetts car accident lawyer will investigate the accident to determine the facts of your case.
- Collecting evidence: Your lawyer will gather evidence to back up your claim and strengthen your legal case, such as medical records, police reports, traffic camera footage, photographs, witness statements, and expert opinions.
- Calculating your claim: Your lawyer will account for the economic and non-economic damages in your case to calculate your claim so we can demand an adequate amount of compensation to cover your losses. We can also determine if a settlement offer is fair or not.
- Negotiating a settlement: Your lawyer will negotiate with the insurance provider on your behalf to reach a fair settlement.
- Filing a lawsuit: Your lawyer will prepare your case for court and file a lawsuit, if necessary, in pursuit of the compensation you deserve. Some cases settle out of court, but we are not afraid to represent you at trial.
We will also provide you with regular updates on the status of your case, and we will travel to your location to discuss your case with you if you are unable to travel to our office. It’s just one of the ways we treat you like family when you obtain our services. We believe everyone should have access to legal representation.
The Cost of a Distracted Driving Lawyer in Massachusetts
You might be hesitating to hire an attorney because of the cost, but it costs nothing for you to consult with us about your case because we offer free consultations. Furthermore, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t pay us unless we win your case and you receive compensation.
Your attorney will explain how payment works in more detail. Don’t hesitate to seek the compensation you deserve to cover your losses. We believe everyone should have access to legal representation regardless of financial status.
Your Distracted Driving Lawyer Will Meet the Statute of Limitations in Massachusetts
Your case is important to us. While you should take time to consider your options after an accident, you generally only have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit in Massachusetts, according to Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 260 § 2A.
If you fail to file a lawsuit by the deadline, you lose your right to seek compensation through the legal process. Consulting with a lawyer can help you learn about your options and choose a path forward. We will work to meet the statute of limitations in your case.
