Did you know that car accidents are one of the major causes of death in the United States? According to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, in 2019, the average number of collisions on Boston city roads was 12.1 per day. 

Recently, a deadly crash took place between three vehicles in Franklin.  The report said that a Toyota Highlander and Chevy Equinox were stopped at a red light, one behind the other. A KIA SUV, which was being driven by a 58-year-old woman, crashed into the Chevy, which hit the Toyota. Police said that the woman was unconscious when they reached the scene. Later, she was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Have you been in a car accident in Boston? Are you wondering whether or not hiring a lawyer is necessary? The answer depends on the situation, but it is always good to consult with a Boston car accident lawyer once you have received the  medical care you need.

Why should you hire a lawyer?

A lawyer can give you legal advice about whether you have a valid case or not. As an experienced professional, he or she will analyze the accident and navigate the  legal system to prove that the other driver was at fault for the accident and that you suffered damages due to the accident. The lawyer will handle your case, look for evidence, represent you in court, and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. 

Here are some additional reasons to hire a car accident lawyer

  • The seriousness of the accident:

The more serious  the accident, the more complex the case. As a result, there may be more complicated legal issues. Hiring a car accident lawyer will help you deal with the legal process. A lawyer will also help you get compensation for all the damages or losses caused by the other person’s negligent or wrongful acts.

  • Recovering damages through compensation: 

A car injury lawyer can help you receive compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and even punitive damages. Even if the accident didn’t cause any serious medical injuries, you’re still entitled to receive compensation for property damage. Depending on your case, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the person who caused the damage with the help of an accident lawyer. 

  • Complex state laws: 

In some states, traffic laws are more favorable to road accident victims. However, some states have complex traffic laws, which can complicate the process of getting the compensation you deserve. In some cases, the other driver’s insurance company may refuse to pay. This may also happen with your own insurance company if they have complex policies. So, hiring a lawyer is a good way to make sure you know your rights and your options to receive compensation.

The bottom line

If you have experienced a car accident, you may have at first thought that hiring a lawyer was unnecessary.
