Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I have a car accident claim?

  • A car accident occurs when two or more vehicles collide, resulting in injury, property damage, or death of one or more of the involved parties.

What should I keep in my car in case of an accident?

  • You must always have your license and registration in possession. You should also have proof of insurance and a pen and paper. If you do not have a camera phone, opt for a disposable camera in the glove box.

What should I do if I am hurt in an auto accident?

1. STOP immediately, but do not obstruct traffic.

2. CALL 911.

3. ASSIST injured.

4. SECURE names, phone numbers, addresses of other drivers, witnesses, and injured persons.

What does it mean to be at fault?

  • Under Massachusetts law, you are considered to be “at fault” when your behavior at the time of the collision constitutes more than 50% of the reason for the accident.

Who determines who is at-fault in a car accident?

  • Ultimately, the determination of who is at fault in a motor vehicle accident rests with the court in your jurisdiction.

Can anything hurt my chances of collecting, even if it is entirely the other person’s fault?

  • You should always wear your seat belt. If you do not, insurance companies may use your failure to wear one as evidence of your own negligence and carelessness. This could hurt your chances of collecting, even if someone has rear-ended you.
