Have You Been Injured? We Can Help.

Massachusetts Car Accident Attorneys

Call (781) 253-2049 to Let Us Help You Recover Your Entitled Compensation

Getting injured in a car accident is a painful, frustrating, and otherwise emotionally overwhelming experience. Not only might you need extensive medical treatment to recover from injury, but you may also be forced to miss time from work, which can make supporting your family difficult. On top of all that, the at-fault party may deny liability, meaning you could end up having to pay your medical bills yourself.

If a negligent driver caused the collision that led to your injuries, Lynch & Owens can help you obtain the compensation and justice you deserve. With millions of dollars recovered on behalf of our clients, our Massachusetts personal injury lawyers can investigate your case, collect evidence, negotiate with insurance adjusters, and maximize your entitled compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.

Car Accident Laws in MA

Massachusetts is considered a “no-fault” insurance state, meaning the injured party must first file a claim with their own insurer before filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. According to the law, the insurance covers certain damages—no matter who was to blame.

Although many car accidents are caused by one party, there are some crashes where multiple parties share fault. Massachusetts follows a “modified comparative negligence” doctrine, which means an injured party can only recover damages if their negligence is not greater than that of the party they are suing.

In other words, if you were partially at fault for the collision, any damages you receive will be reduced in proportion to the degree of your share of liability. For example, if you receive a $100,000 award, but you were 20 percent to blame and the other driver is 80 percent negligent, you will end up with $80,000.

Common causes of car accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Defective auto parts
  • Inclement weather conditions
