Representing the Legal Rights of Individuals Injured in Preventable Car Accidents

According to a number of studies, human error accounts are a significant factor in causing a vast majority of motor vehicle accidents. Under Massachusetts law, a person who is deemed legally at-fault for an accident can be held liable for the economic and noneconomic losses that victims sustain. Among the more common forms of driver negligence that can cause Upton car accidents include the following:

  • Failure to yield at a stop sign
  • Speeding
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to signal a turnDriver error
  • Failure to account for adverse weather
  • Driving under the influence
  • Aggressive driving
  • Failure to observe traffic signals

Individuals who are involved in auto accidents in Upton should seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if they do not believe that they are seriously injured. This is due to the fact that some injuries may not become symptomatic for hours or even days after the injury is sustained. A delay in seeking treatment may give an at-fault party an opportunity to argue that there may have been an intervening cause for your injury, potentially releasing them from legal liability. In addition, seeking medical attention will ensure that any injuries that you have sustained are both properly treated and diagnosed.
