How a Worcester Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney Can Help
Advocating for those injured in serious road accidents
Even if every driver acted reasonably, the road would still be a dangerous place. But unfortunately, many drivers do not act reasonably: Some elect to drive while distracted, others decide to drive while intoxicated and still others operate their vehicles in a careless or reckless manner. Fortunately, the law holds these drivers accountable for the harm they cause. But if you’ve been injured because of the actions of such drivers, exercising your rights to recover damages can be difficult, with insurance companies fighting you every step of the way. An experienced car accident litigator from our team at Gould & Ettenberg, P.C. can cut through these and other delaying tactics by building a strong case and forcing the responsible parties to come to the table in good faith or face trial by jury.
Serious car accidents can have a variety of causes. And the drivers involved often do not know — or will not admit — what actually occurred. But if you’ve been seriously injured in a car accident, establishing the other party’s fault is only the first step. In addition to collecting evidence and identifying witnesses, an experienced personal injury attorney can also work with your medical providers to document the extent of your injuries and navigate complex auto insurance laws to identify all potential sources of compensation.
Accidents involving trucks, because of the size and weight of those vehicles, often result in extensive injuries to car drivers. Trying to recoup damages is often a complicated process, because more than one entity can be held responsible — and large trucking companies are usually covered by large and powerful insurance companies. But while trucks, like cars, are responsible for following the basic rules of the road, they are also subject to a number of other special regulations:
When a driver or trucking company fails to comply with these requirements and harm results to another motorist, it is a strong indicator of legal liability. A diligent lawyer knows how to comb through manifests, logbooks, maintenance records and witness statements to identify these violations and conclusively link them to your injury.
Motorcyclists are especially susceptible to serious and permanent injuries, especially to the head and back. And because of their small size, these vehicles can easily escape the notice of a distracted or careless driver. Our attorneys at Gould & Ettenberg have experience representing injured bikers in the Worcester area and helping them get fair compensation for their injuries.
