In 2014, Governing Magazine named Cambridge the most walkable city in the United States. About one-fourth of Cambridge’s residents walk to work. With wide sidewalks, ample crosswalks and seasoned pedestrians, accidents should happen less than they do in Cambridge. Unfortunately, risks such as distracted drivers, drunk driving and ignored rights-of-way still lead to collisions between cars and pedestrians.

Hiring a pedestrian accident attorney in Cambridge could aid your claim in multiple ways. First, it can help you understand your rights and learn how to protect them from insurance claims adjusters. Second, it could save you from having to handle the legwork of your claim yourself. It could also increase the odds of obtaining maximum compensation for your personal injuries and damages. Your lawyer will know how to negotiate with insurance companies and fight for fair recovery while you focus on recuperating.
One of the key pieces of advice given to accident victims is not to admit fault. This is because your initial understanding of an accident can be misleading. Even if you think you caused the collision, factors you are unaware of could be at play, such as the driver texting and driving or a crosswalk signal failing to work. Never admit fault at the scene of an accident or while talking to an insurance claims adjuster. Instead, contact Sweeney Merrigan Law, LLP for a full investigation. We can help you determine who or what caused the accident.
Once we identify the appropriate defendant in your pedestrian accident case, we can take care of the filing processes on your behalf. We will bring your cause of action before Massachusetts’ three-year deadline, complete with evidence we collected to help prove the defendant’s fault. Evidence could include medical documents, police reports and eyewitness statements. Our lawyers can pursue maximum compensation from any defendant in Cambridge.
If we succeed in negotiating a settlement or obtaining a judgment award as your lawyers, you and your family could receive fair payment for your injuries and damages. An award could include amounts to cover your past and future lost wages, medical expenses, emotional injuries, psychological trauma, legal costs, property repairs, punitive damages, and other losses. Our lawyers can evaluate your case for free today to estimate its potential value.
