What Should I Do After A Car Accident In Boston?

Call for Help

After a car crash, it’s crucial to call 911 immediately. This is especially true if someone is injured or unconscious. Getting medical attention is the most important step if someone is critically injured. Even if there are only minor injuries, you will need a police report for evidence of who was considered at fault for the accident.  

Collect Evidence 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends taking photographs of accidents involving injuries or fatalities. Pictures help investigators document evidence and gather information about what happened. You might find it helpful to take photos of the vehicle involved, the road conditions, and the surroundings. 

You don’t want to miss anything important. Be sure to photograph everything. Include things like skid marks, tire tracks, and damage to vehicles. Photograph the accident’s location, including the roadway and surrounding area. Also, include any debris found at the scene.

If there are eye-witnesses, be sure to get their information, such as names, phone numbers, and statements.  

Exchange Information

After an accident, you and the other vehicle’s driver should exchange contact information, such as name and phone number, and collect witness statements.

Get Medical Treatment

Getting medical treatment after your accident is crucial to your injury claim. Some injuries, such as whiplash, may not present themselves immediately, and by delaying treatment, you may not be able to get the full compensation you deserve for your injuries. This is because to receive financial compensation for your medical expenses, you need to justify that the injuries were directly caused by the automobile accident.  

 Hire A Car Accident Lawyer

You need to hire a personal injury attorney to get the compensation you deserve. By hiring an attorney, you can focus on healing from your injuries while they focus on handling the legal process and fighting the insurance company for a fair settlement.  

Frequently Asked Questions for Boston Car Accident Lawyers

As experienced Boston Car Accident Attorneys, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions.

Every car accident case is different. Contact our team today for a free consultation to discuss your case and see how much compensation you are entitled to.

If you were involved in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, there are several different types of damages that could apply to your case. These are economic, non-economic, and punitive.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are quantifiable monetary losses. This would include property damage, medical expenses, loss of income, and loss of earning capacity.  

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are harder to calculate as they have no specific monetary amount associated with them. These damages include pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of quality of life, and more. 

Punitive Damages

Not all car accident claims will include punitive damages. Punitive damages are additional compensation added to a claim as a financial punishment to the at-fault driver for the extreme negligence of the accident. An example of a case that would include punitive damages is one caused by an intoxicated driver. 

Personal injury law firms handle car accident claims and work on a contingency fee basis. This means there are no upfront or out of pocket expenses. The attorney will hold a percentage for legal fees if you win a settlement agreement from the personal injury claim. This means there is no risk to you! If you don’t win, you don’t pay!

Car accidents can have a wide range of injuries resulting from them, based on severity.

Some common accident injuries include:

  • Head Injuries – These are commonly traumatic brain injuries. A TBI occurs when the brain moves inside the skull due to force applied to the body. This type of injury can occur when someone hits their head against another object, such as the steering wheel or dashboard.
  • Whiplash- Whiplash occurs when the head rotates rapidly forward and backward within the protective structure of the neck. This is the most common type of neck injury in a car accident.
  • Catastrophic Injuries- these types of injuries cause long-term or permanent injuries such as paralysis, severe burn injuries, loss of limbs, loss of sight or hearing, or other life-altering injuries.

Other common injuries:

  • Broken Bones/Bone Fractures
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Internal Injuries
  • Internal bleeding

If you are involved in a car accident, you must contact a Boston personal injury lawyer immediately after the accident. There is only a specific amount of time you can bring forth a personal injury case, called the statutes of limitation. You want to make sure that you do everything possible to protect yourself against insurance companies trying to take advantage of this. If you wait too long to file a claim, the insurance company might try to use the time statute of limitations to deny your claim.

In most cases in Massachusetts, there is a 3-year statute of limitations. It is highly encouraged not to wait this long, as it will be harder to collect evidence as time passes. It will also be more challenging to prove injuries were a result of the accident if there was a delay in medical attention.

Many different factors can cause car accidents. The most common we see are:

  • drunk driving
  • distracted driving
  • reckless driving
  • exceeding the speed limit
  • aggressive driving
  • prescription medications causing impairment 
  • congested roads

Negligent drivers can cause many different types of car accidents. The most common we see are:

  • Single-vehicle crashes
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Head-on collision
  • T-Bone or side collisions
  • Sideswipe Crashes

If the car accident resulted in fatalities, the compensation claim now includes a wrongful death claim. Family members of the deceased can be eligible for compensation for funeral and burial expenses, loss of companionship, loss of future income or inheritance, and loss of consortium.
