Driving in Boston is not for the faint of heart. Our commuters know where they’re trying to go, and they know they’re trying to get there quickly. This can be overwhelming to less experienced motorists and especially to people coming from less intense areas of the country. Car accidents can happen to anybody, and at any time, but a combination of population density and the aggressiveness makes Brighton and the Boston area especially dangerous.
Car accidents can cause any number of injuries, including:
- Soft tissue injuries like lacerations and ligament tears
- Broken bones
- Concussions and serious head trauma
Car accidents can also cause injuries that result in lifelong debilitation, such as back spasms, permanent limps or scarring on visible areas of the body like the neck or face.
If you were injured in a car accident that involved any of the following scenarios, you could be entitled to financial compensation from the person or persons that are responsible for your crash:
Drunk or otherwise impaired drivers – Once every 48 minutes, somebody dies in America due to somebody driving while intoxicated. Drunk drivers are responsible for hundreds of thousands of injuries occur each year due to drunk driving. Needless to say, if you are injured in a crash where the other operator was under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, you have a solid case to pursue damages against that operator.
Overly aggressive drivers – As we mentioned, drivers in Massachusetts can be intense. While some aggressive driving is not necessarily grounds for a suit, overly aggressive driving – think riding your bumper, brake checking, ignoring laws of the road, swerving erratically through lanes, etc. – then they could be liable for any accidents they cause.
Certain weather conditions – Although many weather conditions are not grounds to pursue an injury claim, others may be. For example, if you slide out and crash into a light pole in a shopping mall parking lot because the mall failed to salt the lot well after a major storm has concluded, you may have legitimate grounds for a personal injury claim on the basis of negligence.
Mechanical failure – Sometimes vehicular accidents are caused even when no other motorist was involved. If your accident was caused by something like brake failure, a tire malfunction or some other form of defect, you may be able to pursue legal action against the manufacturer of the vehicle, the garage that performed recent service on your vehicle, or another party that bears responsibility for your vehicle being unfit to safely travel the road.After an Accident, Let the Professionals Help
