Sherborn Car Accident Lawyer
Part of the MetroWest area located west of Boston, Sherborn, Massachusetts is a town with a population of just over 4000. It is located in Middlesex County and falls within the Jurisdiction of the Natick District Court, which sits in Framingham. Sherborn is bordered by the Massachusetts towns of Dover, Natick, Framingham, Ashland, Millis, Holliston, and Medfield. While the town may be relatively small in terms of population, it sees its fair share of motor vehicle traffic. As a result, a significant number of car accidents take place in the town each year, sometimes leaving victims with serious injuries. Fortunately, Massachusetts tort law often allows victims to recover for their injuries and other losses by filing a personal injury claim. As a result, it is important for anyone who has been injured in a Sherborn car wreck to retain qualified legal counsel as soon as possible after an incident occurs.Sherborn Car Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries
According to the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, there were more than 4,000 people seriously injured in motor vehicle crashes in 2012. Car accidents can cause extremely serious injuries, some of which are detailed below.
Traumatic brain injuries – Often referred to as TBIs, traumatic brain injuries occur when a bump or blow to the head results in a disruption of normal brain function. In more serious cases, TBIs can leave victims with serious cognitive issues that can have a significant impact on their quality of life.
Spinal cord injuries – Spinal cord injuries involve damage to the spinal cord, which is the bundle of nerves responsible for allowing the brain to communicate with the rest of the body. Damage to the spinal cord can result in serious complications, including loss of mobility and even complete paralysis below the site of the injury.
Fractured bones – The tremendous forces involved in many car accidents can easily break bones in the human body. When bone fractures are serious, they can result in medical complications that may affect victims for years.
The injuries listed here are some of the more serious kinds of injuries that people can sustain in car accidents. Other, less serious injuries may also result in significant losses, so anyone who has been involved in a car accident should discuss their options with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. Victims should be aware that car accident claims in Massachusetts are subject to a strict statute of limitations which limits the amount of time that an individual has to file a claim. As a result, any delay in filing a claim may jeopardize your right to recover.Contact a Sherborn Car Accident Attorney Today to Schedule a Free Case Evaluation
