Protecting the Rights of Those Who Were Injured in Car Accidents
Too often, people underestimate the seriousness of a car accident. Even seemingly minor injuries from a rear-end crash or a distracted driver can develop into something more serious or even fatal. That’s why we strongly encourage accident victims to get a checkup from their doctors and follow their orders. If you fail to take your injury seriously, how will the insurance company take your claim seriously?
What types of car accidents in Massachusetts does our law firm handle?
We have experience in winning cases for auto accidents involving:
When a car accident happens in Massachusetts, it is easy to become confused and forget to get the necessary information. Even a minor accident can leave people nervous and shaken.
Keep this checklist handy of steps to take and questions to ask in case of an accident. You may want to add important contact information and phone numbers as well.
When You Are Involved in a Car Accident:
- Notify the police.
- If anyone is hurt, tell the police you need medical assistance.
- If anyone is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, tell the police.
- Collect the following information from those involved in the accident (including drivers, passengers, pedestrians and witnesses):
- Make notes about the accident including how the accident occurred (direction of the vehicles), time of day, weather conditions, damage to vehicles, names and badge numbers of the police officers who came to the scene, if any vehicles were towed from the scene.
- If possible, take photos of the accident scene with your cellphone, including street signs, skid marks, damage to vehicles and weather conditions. If you do not have a camera and you contact the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone, we may be able to take photos for you.
- Seek medical help. Even if you were not directly injured in the accident, be aware that sometimes injuries, such as whiplash, do not appear for a few days after the accident.
- Contact your insurance company as soon as possible. If you feel that, for any reason, your insurance company may not be willing to cover the accident, contact the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone before you call your insurance company. Do not answer any questions or make statements to the other drivers’ insurance company before speaking to a Boston personal injury attorney.
Questions to Ask Those Involved in the Car Accident:
- Is anyone injured?
- Are you insured?
- Who is your insurance company?
- Are you the owner of the car?
- Who are the passengers?
- Damage to vehicles: Was there damage to vehicles prior to accident (including non-functioning brake lights)? Were any vehicles company-owned?
- Is anyone taking blame for the accident?
Who decides where my car is repaired?
You can decide where your vehicle is repaired. The insurance company decides how much will be paid for the repairs, and it may not be the same amount as the repair shop estimate.
Who will pay the fees for storage of my vehicle?
The insurance company of the person who caused the accident will pay towing and storage costs, according to what is reasonable in your area. If the vehicle is declared a total loss, the insurance company will pay to have it moved to a salvage or wrecking yard. If you do not allow the company to move your vehicle, you will be liable for any storage or towing fees.
Who decides if my vehicle is repairable or “totaled”?
The insurance company who is liable for payment can decide that your vehicle is not worth repairing, which means that it is totaled. If the cost of the labor and parts exceeds the market value of your vehicle, the company can declare it a “total loss” and pay you the market value for your car. Market value is determined by the fair market value of similar vehicles in your area, or from an independent source such as the Kelley Blue Book. If you want to keep the vehicle after it has been declared a total loss, you will have to pay the salvage value to the insurance company.
Who pays the bank loan if my vehicle is financed?
You are still liable for any loans on the vehicle. If the fair market value of your vehicle is less than the outstanding loan, you are still required to pay the entire amount of the loan.
Do I get a rental vehicle while my vehicle is being repaired?
You can always get a rental vehicle if you are willing to pay for it. If you want the insurance company to pay for it while your vehicle is being repaired or replaced, then payment depends on several factors. If you caused the accident, check to see if your own insurance coverage includes rental vehicles. Many policies do not include rental vehicles unless it is specifically stated. If the other driver caused the accident, then you can expect the liable person’s insurance company to pay the costs of providing you with a rental vehicle. The vehicle will be a substitute for your own vehicle, that is, a vehicle of similar quality. Be sure to check with your own insurance company about insurance coverage on the rental vehicle.
I just paid for my license plates. Do I have to pay for new ones?
The insurance company should pay the prorated amount of any registration fees that are unused, as well as transfer fees for the new registrations.
