Seeking compensation after a car accident in Salem

As mentioned in last week’s post, the aftermath of a car accident in Massachusetts can wreak havoc on the lives of surviving accident victims and their loved ones. Fortunately, it is possible to pursue compensation for the emotional and physical costs associated with being involved in a car accident through a personal injury lawsuit.

Some Massachusetts residents are fortunate enough to walk away from the scene of an accident believing they are mostly unharmed. Thus, they don’t consider getting medical attention for what they consider to be minor injuries. As a result, they might not think to pursue a legal claim against the negligent driver until is too late. For example, an injury may manifest itself at a later time, such as chronic neck and back pain and may amount to significant medical costs over time. Additionally, damage to the vehicle that may not seem like a lot at the time may eventually add up. However, by the time accident victims realize how much they are paying emotionally and physically for someone else’s negligence, it might be too late to pursue a claim.

Collecting evidence, reconstructing the accident scene and speaking to eyewitnesses should all take place very quickly after a car crash takes place, as memories weaken, and tire tracks lighten over time.
