How Is Liability Established After a Car Accident in Cape Cod?

To ensure that the responsible party is held liable after you are injured in a Cape Cod car accident, you must be able to prove liability. To prove liability in your car accident claim, you need to provide evidence of the four elements of negligence. These elements are as follows:

  • The liable party owed you a duty of care
  • The liable party failed to uphold the duty of care owed to you
  • The breach in duty of care caused your injury
  • You suffered a loss as a result

To get help providing liability in your train accident case, contact one of our trusted Massachusetts car accident lawyers. Our team of Cape Cod car accident lawyers has experience providing our clients with trusted representation as we help them pursue the compensation they are owed.

Compensation Available to Car Accident Victims

Under the state’s no-fault insurance laws, your first outlet for recovery will be a first-party claim with your own insurer for personal injury protection coverage. You will file this type of claim regardless of who caused your car accident. If, however, your injuries are serious (i.e. broken bones, disabilities or more than $2,000 in necessary medical expenses), you may file a claim against the at-fault party instead. A lawsuit outside of Massachusetts’ no-fault insurance system could provide better coverage for your injuries.

A successful insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit could pay you for several losses and damages related to your auto accident. State courts allow for the retrieval of compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, legal and out-of-pocket costs, property repairs, loss of consortium, lost quality of life, and punitive damages. Our attorneys can help you take the right steps to maximize the financial award retrieved for your injuries.
