Holliston Car Accident Lawyer

The Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security indicates that over 300,000 people have been injured in motor vehicle accidents in the state since 2010. While Boston is clearly the leader in terms of population density in our area, a significant number of Massachusetts residents live in the area immediately to the west of Boston, often referred to as the “MetroWest.” Holliston, Massachusetts is a town in the MetroWest with a population of almost 15,000 people located in Middlesex County. Only 21 miles from the city, Holliston has a significant number of residents that commute to and from Boston each day for work. In addition, Holliston does not have a public transit system that connects it to Boston and the surrounding communities, forcing residents to be very dependent on their cars. Holliston is easily accessible from Interstate 195 and the Massachusetts Turnpike, and State Routes 16 and 126 pass directly through the town.

Car Accidents Can Leave Victims With Significant Injuries

When motor vehicle accidents happen, the forces involved can often be tremendous. In some cases, drivers and passengers can be thrown from their vehicles and come into contact with the ground or another car or truck, potentially causing further injury. Even when vehicle occupants stay inside of their car, they can often strike objects or surfaces within the vehicle causing equally serious injury. Among the most common injuries car include:

Determining fault is one of the most important issues after a Massachusetts car accident. Under the tort law of our state, people who are injured by another’s negligent act or omission can often recover for their losses by filing a legal claim against the negligent party or parties. Common sources of legal liability in car accident cases include other drivers, car manufacturers, non-vehicle commuters using the roadways, and government agencies that are responsible for road construction and maintenance. While negligent conduct may sometimes be apparent, in other cases it may take significant investigation to uncover. The assistance of an attorney can invaluable to car accident victims seeking financial recovery, and often can have a significant impact in the ultimate outcome of a case. Often, insurance companies or other parties will try and offer unrepresented parties an unreasonably low settlement offer in exchange for victims giving up their right to sue.
