Do You Know Your Rights As A Car Crash Victim?
After a car accident, most injury victims who carry car insurance assume they are “fully covered” and won’t have any problems getting an insurance payout from their auto insurance policies. Unfortunately, difficulties often arise — even when car accident victims are negotiating with their own insurance companies. Too many people accept an inadequate payout rather than fight with their insurance companies. Why?
Representation After Serious Injuries Or Fatal Accidents
Car crashes cause a variety of severe injuries, including soft tissue injuries, brain damage and spinal cord injuries, and even wrongful death. Our lawyer has won compensation after serious and fatal accidents involving:
- Commercial vehicle collisions
- Drunk and distracted drivers
- Automotive defects
- Workers injured while operating a motor vehicle
- Hazardous road conditions
Our attorney has in-depth knowledge of Massachusetts’ insurance law. We deal with the insurance companies on your behalf, negotiating for compensation for all pain and suffering, medical payments, property damage and collision claims associated with your case. If applicable, we can also help you secure uninsured or underinsured motorist benefits.
Will My Car Insurance Rates Increase If I File A Claim?
A misconception exists that your car insurance rates will go up if you file a claim after a car accident. This is not true. Under Massachusetts law, your insurance rates will not rise unless you are shown to be 50 percent or more at fault in the accident.
Another myth about car accidents and insurance claims is that it is somehow wrong to make an insurance claim after a car accident. This is also not true. Insurance policyholders pay premiums in order to get the benefit of an insurance payout in the event of accident and injury. Learn more about opening a personal injury claim post-crash.
