A catastrophic car accident can have a life-changing impact on the victims. Although any type of car accident can lead to injuries and financial damages, a catastrophic crash can leave the victim with permanent disabilities, major medical expenses, or even result in a fatality. If you were involved in a catastrophic car accident, it is critical to make sure that you receive the financial support that you deserve to cope with the accident and how it will change your life. This includes not only covering your medical expenses but offsetting any impact on your ability to work, provide for your family, and take care of yourself. At Mass Injury Group, our Boston car accident lawyers are standing by to help you determine whether you should pursue compensation after a catastrophic injury.
Recently, Boston firefighters were required to use the Jaws of Life to remove three accident victims from a car after a catastrophic accident, according to a local news report. The small sedan involved in the crash was severely damaged in the crash, which happened around 10:45 a.m. on Gallivan Boulevard. All three people were trapped in the vehicle, however. All three occupants were transported to a nearby hospital to receive treatment for their injuries. Law enforcement officials are still investigating the accident and have not released a cause of the crash.
If you were hurt in a catastrophic car accident, you can bring a claim for damages against the person who caused the crash. This includes bringing a claim against the driver of the vehicle in which you were riding as a passenger if it is a single-car accident like the news report discussed above. In the lawsuit, you will need to show that the defendant did not use proper care and skill at the time of the accident. Examples of a lack of care include texting while driving, intoxicated driving, speeding, failing to yield the right of way, reckless driving, road rage, and fatigued driving.
It can be hard to prove that someone wasn’t driving with the right level of caution and attention. There are many different types of evidence that you can gather to help establish your right to compensation. If you are coping with catastrophic injuries, gathering evidence can seem like a daunting or even impossible task. We can assist you with evidence gathering and ensure that you collect each piece of evidence available to help support your claim. A few common examples of evidence used in catastrophic car accident cases include police reports, eyewitness statements, video footage, and an inspection of the vehicles involved in the crash.
