Very few car accidents are clear cut when it comes to determining fault. One individual may have been speeding slightly when he is struck by another driver who ran a stop sign. Should this disallow the first driver from recovering compensation? This is a debate that, at one time or another, has played out in every state, and the laws addressing it can vary from state-to-state.
The previous post on our blog discussed Massachusetts traumatic brain injuries. Those who suffer from these injuries, regardless of severity, often have a lot unfairly thrust upon them. Not only will they likely face emotional and physical challenges, but they will also probably be left with serious financial damage. These financial losses could be caused by missed work and thus lost wages, or from medical and rehabilitative costs. Making matters worse, as traumatic brain injuries can affect a sufferer for a lifetime, the costs can be ongoing and burdensome.
Car accidents are a common occurrence throughout Massachusetts and across America. Though these wrecks can certainly cause significant property damage to an individual's car, they can also cause serious injuries. Recovering from any type of injury can be difficult, causing pain and suffering, financial loss and missed work. But, some injuries can truly reshape an individual's life. Massachusetts accident victims, who suffer a traumatic brain injury, are often left incapable of living the life they once had.
