Weston Car Accident Lawyer

Weston, Massachusetts is a town of just over 11,000 people located in the Boston metro area. Weston was incorporated over 300 years ago and boasts one of the lowest crime rates in the area. In addition, the town is noted for its relative wealth, being ranked among the 10 most affluent towns with a population in excess of 10,000 people. While these statistics may make Weston seem like an idyllic place to live or visit, it is subject to the same realities as any other modern American town, including motor vehicle accidents. According to the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security , there were more than 108,000 car accidents in the state during 2012. In many cases, individuals who are injured in car accidents have a legal right to recover for their losses. These recoverable losses can include medical expenses, lost income, damage to property, physical and emotional pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life, among others. As a result, anyone who has been injured in a car accident should discuss their options with an experienced Weston car accident lawyer as soon as possible.

Weston Car Accidents Can Occur for a Variety of Reasons

In order to recover compensation after a car accident, victims must be able to establish that their accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. In the context of a motor vehicle accident negligence can take a number of forms, including the following:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield
  • Failure to observe traffic signals
  • Improper vehicle maintenance
  • Improperly designed or maintained roads
  • Defective vehicle parts
  • Driving under the influence
  • Driver error
  • Fatigued driving

While liability is relatively straightforward in some car accident cases, others require significant investigation in order to determine the cause of the accident. An experienced attorney will conduct an exhaustive analysis of the facts of your case and uncover any evidence of negligence that may exist. Some of the kinds of evidence that may be relevant to a motor vehicle accident case include eyewitness accounts, vehicle maintenance records, police reports, and surveillance video, as well as others. In some cases, it may be necessary to retain the services of an accident reconstruction expert in order to establish fault on the part of another driver or other party. A lawyer familiar with representing car accident victims will be able to obtain this type of evidence and present it in such a way as to maximize your chances of recovery.
