Carlisle Car Accident Lawyer

Carlisle Massachusetts is a town of just under 5,000 people located in Middlesex County. Located about 20 miles northwest of Boston, Carlisle was first settled in the mid-17 th Century but was not incorporated as a town until 1805. While Carlisle has a largely rural character, car accidents regularly occur in the community. Car accident victims often sustain serious injuries, including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, and soft-tissue injuries. In turn, these injuries can result in significant economic and non-economic losses for victims, who often were injured through no fault of their own. In many cases, people who are injured in motor vehicle accidents are entitled to significant financial recovery under Massachusetts law. As a result, anyone who has been injured in an auto accident should contact a Carlisle car accident lawyer as soon as possible to secure legal representation.

Carlisle Car Accidents Are Often Caused by Negligence

Car accidents can occur for a wide variety of reasons, not all of which are legally actionable. In legal cases involving accidental injury, it is often necessary for victims to be able to establish that their accident was caused by the negligence of another party. There are a number of ways that negligent conduct could lead to a Carlisle car accident, including the following:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Improper vehicle maintenance
  • Driving under the influence
  • Vehicle defects
  • Improperly designed or maintained roads
  • Inadequate signage
  • Driver error
  • 3rd party negligence

After a car accident, it is extremely important for victims to record as much information about the way in which the accident occurred as possible. Among the facts of which to take note include the names of the other drivers involved in the accident, the license plate numbers of the vehicles involved, the DOT numbers of any commercial vehicles involved in the accident, and contact information from anyone who may have witnessed the accident. Additionally, people who have been involved in car accidents should seek medical attention even if they do not believe that they are seriously hurt. In many cases, the adrenaline associated with being involved in a car wreck may mask the signs and symptoms of a serious injury for a significant period of time after an accident occurs. If victims do not have their injuries diagnosed by a medical professional, it may make it more difficult to establish that their injuries were caused by the accident later.
