Auto Injury Lawyer Fighting Diligently for Victims in Norfolk County
Being involved in a serious car accident is one of the scariest things some people experience in life, especially when it results in a serious injury. An injury as a result of an auto accident can cause many problems physically, emotionally and financially. If you have been involved in a car accident that has left you incapacitated or otherwise unable to operate at the same day-to-day level that you used to, you may be entitled to compensation.
Auto accident laws in Massachusetts are complicated, however, and the rules are picky about who is liable or at fault and how a victim of an injury from an auto accident can claim damages. Speaking with a Massachusetts auto injury lawyer following your accident is the best way to see if you should file a suit.
Attorney Strazzulla was referred to me by Dr John Arpano. Attorney Strazzulla was the best attorney for me. I am quite demanding and needed to be hand held during the process. He was great in reassuring me that my case was going along as scheduled. He worked extremely hard for me to receive the most out of my car accident. He made sure that my bills were paid and that I was getting the care I needed. I recommend him to anyone that needs a great attorney for any case. Thank You Again

Comparative Fault Laws in Massachusetts
The state of Massachusetts has a modified form of comparative fault laws. This means the negligence of the plaintiff, or the person injured in an auto accident, is compared alongside the negligence of the other person or people involved, or the defendant(s). If you have been in an accident and it can be proven that you were less than 50 percent responsible for causing the accident, you may be entitled to damages and compensation. Your best course of action is to speak with a lawyer familiar with all of the comparative and contributory negligence laws in Massachusetts before you do anything.
What to Do Following an Auto Accident
After you’ve been treated for your injuries by medical professionals, the next step you should take following a serious car accident is to begin collecting all documents and other evidence relating to your injury – photos of your vehicle, photos of your injury, doctor notes and medical files, anything that may help you gain leverage should you decide to file a lawsuit in the future. The next step is to get in contact with an experienced Massachusetts personal injury lawyer.

Much like vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents can be very deadly. Motorcyclists often face greater dangers than motorists, and are at risk of suffering much more serious injuries. As with car accidents, if you have been in a motorcycle accident that resulted in injury, even if you do not think you’ve been hurt, it’s best you seek medical attention and document everything. Then, speak with a Massachusetts personal injury attorney. Visit our motorcycle accidents page for more information.
