Car Accidents and Personal Injury in Massachusetts

With texting and cell phones constantly being used, car accidents remain as one of the leading causes of personal injuries in Massachusetts. Driver errors and negligence can cause serious and sometimes fatal accidents. When the crash was not your fault, knowing how to proceed afterward can be crucial to pursuing a successful personal injury claim.

What to do after a car accident

Listed below are a few of the most important things to keep in mind if you are injured in an automobile accident in Massachusetts:

  • Seek immediate medical attention. Sometimes people feel fine after an accident and foolishly decline care from medical personnel. This is a mistake. It can risk not only your health but it can also jeopardize your case.
  • Collect information at the scene. If you can, gather photos, witness statements, insurance information, license plate numbers, and the full names of drivers and passengers involved. This is valuable information for your attorney.
  • · Start keeping a journal. A journal or diary documenting how you feel throughout the days and months following the accident can be very helpful in court.
  • · Report the accident. Make sure the accident is reported to the police and your insurance company.

Finally, contact a knowledgeable personal injury attorney who has experience dealing with automobile accidents. You deserve fair compensation for lost income, medical expenses and pain and suffering. A good attorney can assist you with all the necessary preparations, research and representation.
