Massachusetts Auto Accident Lawyer FAQs

Can you sue for a car accident in Massachusetts?

Yes, potentially. You may be able to file a car accident lawsuit if you are not found to be 51% or more responsible for the crash.

Depending on your case, you may be able to sue the negligent drivers, insurance companies, or vehicle manufacturers if faulty equipment played a role in your accident.

What should I do if I’m in a car accident in Massachusetts?

If you are involved in a car accident, the most important thing to do is seek medical attention if you have been injured.

Once medical needs have been met, you should:

  • Call 911: Regardless of whether or not you or others involved in the crash have been injured, calling 911 is an important step to take to ensure that there is an accurate record of the accident.
  • Collect evidence: Taking photos and videos, in addition to collecting eyewitness testimonies, can help you prove who was at fault in the accident if you choose to take legal action.
  • Call a lawyer: A Massachusetts car accident attorney can help you maximize the compensation you may receive.

At Sokolove Law, our car crash lawyers have decades of experience helping victims who were injured through no fault of their own.

Call (800) 995-1212 today to learn if you have a case.

Do you need a lawyer to sue for a car accident in Massachusetts?

It is highly recommended to hire a car accident lawyer if your case involves serious injuries or disputes about the at-fault party.

Hiring a Massachusetts car crash attorney can help ensure you get the compensation you deserve after a car accident.

Insurance companies often try to pressure victims into accepting small payouts that don’t cover the full extent of the damages caused by the crash.

If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, Sokolove Law may be able to help. Get a free case review today.

Can I get compensation from a car accident lawsuit even if I’m partially at fault?

Yes. You may still be able to get compensation from a car accident lawsuit in Massachusetts even if you're partially at fault.

The amount of damages awarded, however, may be reduced in proportion to the percentage of fault assigned to the plaintiff.

Because of this, it can be especially important to work with an experienced auto accident lawyer. We can help you gather the important pieces of evidence necessary to prove your level of negligence and fault.

How much do Massachusetts car accident lawyers charge?

At Sokolove Law, our Massachusetts car accident attorneys charge no upfront or hourly costs. We work on a contingency basis, which means we only get paid if we secure compensation for you.
