Is This What Happened to You?

Car accidents can occur for a number of reasons. Determining the cause of the crash is one of the first steps in proving the other party was responsible for causing your injuries. While no two accidents are the same, some of the most common factors that contribute to vehicle accidents include but are not limited to:

Drivers who are distracted aren’t only breaking the law but also have a much higher risk of causing a traffic accident because their eyes are not on the road and their minds are not focused on driving. Texting and driving is an extremely dangerous form of distracted driving because it involves cognitive, physical, and visual distractions.

A person’s ability to operate a motor vehicle in a safe manner can be impaired by the use of drugs or alcohol. Some people fail to realize that even over-the-counter and prescription medications can also cause an impairment that can lead to a serious accident.

In many ways, driving drowsy or fatigued is as dangerous as drunk driving. Being drowsy is also a serious impairment behind the wheel. Drowsy and fatigued driving are especially common amongst truck drivers, as well as students, swing shift workers, and night workers.

Reckless driving, including speeding, is another common cause of car accidents. Drivers who are aggressive or angry often take needless risks when driving, such as tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic, running red lights, turning without sufficient time, or cutting in front of traffic. Any of these actions can have serious and life-threatening consequences.

Poor weather conditions can also be a factor in auto accidents. In many cases, drivers travel too fast for the conditions or follow the car in front of them too closely, both dangerous mistakes that cause innocent people to get hurt.

Potholes, defective signs, malfunctioning traffic signals, missing guardrails, road debris, and other hazardous conditions can cause a driver to lose control and crash.

Car Accident Frequently Asked Questions

Every driver in Massachusetts owes other drivers on the roads what’s called a “duty of care.” If someone breaches that duty of care by acting carelessly and you’re injured as a result, that person may be held liable for their actions. However, proving negligence is not always straight-forward. Our experienced Boston car accident lawyers have been serving injured individuals for years and can help you hold the right party responsible for your injuries.

No two car accidents are the same, so the amount of compensation you may be entitled to receive will depend on the circumstances of your accident. If you’ve been hurt due to another driver’s recklessness, you may be able to receive compensation for the following damages:

  • Damage to property
  • Loss of income
  • Medical expenses
  • Future damages, including loss of earning capacity and ongoing medical care
  • Physical pain and emotional suffering
  • Expenses related to your accident and injuries
  • Permanent disabilities and impairments
  • Damages associated with the death of a loved one

The Massachusetts statute of limitations is three years. This means injured claim holders have three years from the time of their injuries to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. While most car accident claims are able to be settled outside of court and do not require you to file a lawsuit, it’s important to keep this three-year deadline in mind in the event that a fair settlement cannot be reached and you need to take your case to court.

If you have been in car accident in Massachusetts that wasn’t your fault, it’s important to speak with an experienced Boston car accident lawyer as soon as possible. Having a lawyer on your side can help you avoid common mistakes claim holders make that can cause you to receive much less than what you’re owed.

Though every case and client is different, one thing will always be the same at Jim Glaser Law: we don’t get paid unless you do. Our office works on a contingency basis, which allows you to retain our services without fear of hidden fees or expensive down payments. In fact, you won’t owe us anything unless we win your case!
