Figuring out who is at fault in an auto accident means figuring out who demonstrated negligence. When a driver fails to use care when operating a motor vehicle establishes negligence.
A finding of negligence is often based on any reason or combination of reasons as follows:
- Disregarding traffic signals and signs
- Not using turn signals
- Reckless driving
- Driving while intoxicated
- Talking on the phone
- Distracted driving (for example, doing your hair and makeup, eating, taking selfies, dub smashing, etc.)
- Vehicle Defects
- Vehicle Recalls
- Other Law Violations
Drunk drivers can also lead to claims against establishments that server alcohol for dram shop violations. Even hit and run drivers who have not been identified can lead to claims.
A county, city or town can have a claim made against them for improper maintenance of lighting, traffic signals, tunnels, bridges, roads, curbs, embankments, debris, road markings and exits. The claim can be made against the builders contracted to do the construction.
If you’ve been injured in any time of motor vehicle accident, as a bicyclist or pedestrian, you have the right to recover monetary damages for your pain and suffering. These can include medical expenses, time lost at work, and even future anticipated expenses.
Brief Introduction to Massachusetts Insurance Law. What’s Covered?
Medical Bills: Your first $2,000.00 of medical expenses is paid by Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance carrier of the car you were in or hit.

If you do not have private health care insurance, or if your insurance company refuses to pay your medical bills, you may be eligible for up to $8,000.00 in PIP medical coverage.
Lost Wages: If you lost money because you’re unable to work due to your injuries, you may be eligible to collect 75% of your lost pay, based on your average weekly pay, from the PIP insurance carrier, up to $8,000.00.
Bodily Injuries and Wrongful Death: If you have more than $2,000 in medical expenses, a fracture, or serious injury, you may be eligible for injury compensation. This includes loss of ability to enjoy life, partial and/or permanent disabilities scarring, suffering & pain. Wrongful death claims are also eligible for compensation under Massachusetts motor vehicle laws.
Insufficient Insurance: If the person who caused the injury does not have insurance or inadequate insurance to cover damages, you may be eligible to collect uninsured or underinsured coverage from your own or family vehicle insurance policy.
