Establishing Liability in a Framingham Car Accident 

Car accidents may occur at any point when you are traveling with other drivers on the road. Even at low speeds, you may be at risk of long-term injury and financial and emotional losses as a result of your collision. Determining liability is essential to recovering the fair compensation you deserve. In some car accidents, it may be apparent who is accountable for your injuries, but in some instances may be more unclear. 

With the help of the experienced Framingham car accident attorneys at Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers, you may be able to conduct an investigation into the details of your accident to establish accountability by obtaining evidence of the following: 

How Liability Is Determined in Framingham 

Massachusetts abides by a no-fault state system, meaning that you will be receiving benefits and compensation through your own insurance policy when filing a claim. While initially you will not be seeking damages from the liable party’s insurance provider, you may proceed to file a claim against them through your insurance provider if they are found to be at fault for the accident. 

To successfully prove liability, you must provide the following types of evidence: 

  • Witness statements 
  • Police report documenting the accident 
  • A written statement from the liable driver admitting fault
  • Photo or videos evidence of property damage, injuries, or accident scene 

You may file a claim for non-economic damages like emotional suffering if the losses you have suffered exceed $2,000. To be considered liable for damages, the negligent driver must be found to be more than 50% at fault for the accident. Speak with an experienced Framingham car accident lawyer to investigate your accident, determine liability, and obtain valuable evidence that may help bolster the success of your claim for recovery.
