You wouldn’t know it in Massachusetts but pedestrians always have the right of way. If you’ve been struck by an automobile in a crosswalk, call us first.
Pedestrians have the right-of-way at stop signs and crosswalks. Unfortunately drivers throughout Massachusetts often ignore pedestrian rights resulting in accidents and serious injuries. The streets of Boston and the surrounding Massachusetts communities are bustling with people in a hurry. In the daily chase motorists, often distracted and many times just in a hurry, are careless and do not see people crossing the street in crosswalks, at stop signs, or at traffic signals.
You need experienced attorneys on your side.
When a pedestrian is involved in an accident, there are a number of legal implications which can complicate the person’s recovery. It is important to to call us immediately so we can investigate your accident, speak with eye witnesses, and obtain evidence from the scene. Your own Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance covers motorists, not pedestrians. Therefore, it is critical to have an experienced attorney on your side who understands pedestrian accidents and how to recover the maximum compensation for your injuries and expenses.
Accidents happen, but it doesn’t release a motorist from liability.
A motorist may claim to have not seen the pedestrian in the crosswalk or on the sidewalk because of sun-glare, shadows, or darkness. However, in Massachusetts this does not relinquish the liability of the driver. The fact of the matter is the driver assumes the responsibility for the safe operation of the motor vehicle under all circumstances. Our attorneys will help determine just how much liability and what level of liability is the driver responsible to maximize compensation for your injuries..
