New Bedford Whiplash Lawyer

Whether you have been in a car accident, slip-and-fall, or another type of personal injury accident, whiplash is a potential injury you may have suffered that can be more serious than some people initially think. Whiplash is a neck injury resulting from forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, almost like the cracking of a whip. If you have suffered a whiplash injury, it is crucial that you take the necessary steps to pursue compensation for your whiplash injury case by filing a personal injury claim. While it is important that you take the time to recover from your injury, you should begin the claims process as soon as possible. To pursue justice for your injury and losses, contact one of our New Bedford whiplash lawyers.

Proving Liability in a New Bedford Whiplash Injury Case

Many parties may be held liable for a whiplash injury case depending on the specific details of your case. When you work with our team of trusted whiplash injury lawyers, we will launch a full investigation into what happened and who the responsible party may be for your claim. Once you have identified the liable party, it is important that you are able to prove liability in your case. Proving liability is vital in ensuring you have a strong personal injury claim. To prove liability in a whiplash injury claim, you must be able to provide evidence of the four factors of negligence. These factors are as follows:

  • The liable party owed you a duty of care
  • The liable party breached the duty of care
  • The breach in duty of care led to your accident and whiplash injury
  • You suffered a loss as a result

To get help collecting the vital evidence for your whiplash injury claim, contact one of our trusted whiplash lawyers in New Bedford to begin working on your claim as soon as possible. When you work with our experienced legal team, you will have access to lawyers with extensive experience handling a wide range of cases in Massachusetts.

Our team of legal professionals is led by our two managing partners, J. Tucker Merrigan and Peter M. Merrigan. Both attorneys have been recognized by outlets such as Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers for their continued excellence in personal injury law, including cases regarding whiplash injuries.

Can You Collect Damages From a Whiplash Injury Claim?

When another party causes you harm due to their negligence, you should never have to pay out of pocket for the expenses you may have incurred as you heal. If you have been injured in an accident that resulted in whiplash, you may be able to retain compensation for your losses. The damages you may be eligible for following a whiplash injury include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering

When you file your claim, your insurance provider may try to offer you an initial, low settlement amount. Insurance companies do this in hopes that the individual who filed will not know any better and accept the minimum offer. However, when you work with our team of experienced personal injury lawyers, we can help ensure you get the fair settlement you deserve for your whiplash injury claim by calculating how much you may be owed in damages and negotiating for the compensation you are owed.

Why Should You Hire a New Bedford Whiplash Lawyer?
