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.

Car accident results in teen's death

A young life holds with it a lot of promise. Parents look forward to watching their children grow up, begin their careers and live up to their potential. While loved ones think of it as an emotional reward, there is no doubt that there is a financial potential that children can live up to as well. This is why when a young life is snatched away from their parents due to someone else's negligence, both the emotional and financial loss can be calculated in the compensation being sought from the errant driver responsible for the car accident.

One dead, four injured in fatal DUI car crash

Losing someone in a fatal traffic accident can be devastating for family members, and nothing can quantify what they have lost or replace it. Many questions arise after someone dies suddenly due to another person's fault, especially if the driver responsible for causing the car crash was driving under the influence of alcohol. Getting behind the wheel while intoxicated is a decision made by the driver that ends up endangering the lives of everyone on the road at the time.

Don't let a catastrophic injury go uncompensated

Nothing can do undo the pain, trauma and loss that is suffered in the aftermath of a motor vehicle wreck. This is why many accident victims in Massachusetts may feel there is no point in pursuing a claim against the party who either was responsible for causing or irresponsible for not preventing the accident. What they don't realize is that an accident and subsequent injuries causes a number of expenses that were not foreseen and can turn their lives around.

How can a deposition be used during a personal injury lawsuit?

There should be little doubt that time is of the essence in the aftermath of a traffic accident. Not only because there is a time limit that a personal injury lawsuit has to be filed, but also because evidence can get lost as time passes. For example, skid marks that could show speed could fade. Similarly, witnesses could begin to forget and even the accident victim's memory could get a hazy.

One dead, one injured, and one arrested after car accident

It is a sad reality that car accidents are incredibly common in America, and Massachusetts is not exempt. In fact, some reports note that instances of car wrecks are actually on the rise in our country despite years of a downward trend in these statistics. Car accidents can result in injuries and even fatalities, which means more people may be at risk than ever before.

Recovering damages after a crash is possible with help

The past couple of posts on our personal injury law blog have highlighted two important issues related to car accidents and injuries. First, it is not always easy to determine who will be able to compensate an accident victim for injuries he or she suffers in a wreck. Second, whiplash is a common injury suffered in these accidents, which if not treated properly could result in chronic pain. As a result, car accident victims who are injured in a wreck caused by the negligence of another should consider filing a personal injury lawsuit in hopes of recovering compensation for their damages.

Who pays for damages suffered in an accident with a teen driver?

There are a number of reasons why car accidents occur. This includes a driver's inattentiveness, intoxication, or drowsiness. One of the factors less commonly talked about is inexperience. Teen drivers, for example, have recently begun driving and are usually unable to anticipate a vehicle's reaction time and respond accordingly. This is why accidents involving teens are often more common than those involving middle-aged drivers.

Whiplash is a common injury suffered in rear-end crashes

When someone has been injured in a car accident, some of the injuries become apparent immediately. Bruises and broken bones, for example, are identified and receive medical treatment as soon as possible. Other injuries often take days, if not weeks, to manifest and can become chronic if not treated properly.
