Taunton, Massachusetts, Car Accident Attorneys
Our lawyers represent people injured in all types of motor vehicle accidents in Massachusetts, including car accidents, semi and tractor-trailer crashes, and pedestrian injuries.
Massachusetts is a no-fault auto insurance state. Most people are unaware of what this means and how it affects their ability to collect compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. If you have been injured in a car accident, our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to explain your coverage in easy-to-understand language.
Your no-fault auto insurance coverage includes personal injury protection (PIP), which will pay you for lost wages and medical bills up to a limit of $8,000. You receive this coverage even if the accident was your fault. At your free initial consultation, one of our car accident lawyers will look at your no fault coverage and explain what compensation you can get from your insurance company and what you can get from the insurance company of the at-fault driver.
No-fault insurance and PIP coverage applies only to car accident cases. Motorcycle accident injuries are not covered by no-fault rules.
Tort Threshold for Car Accident Injuries
To make a claim for pain and suffering in Massachusetts, your injury must meet what is known as the “tort threshold.” A tort threshold injury is a broken bone, disfiguring scar, permanent eye or hearing injury, or medical bills in excess of $2,000. If you don’t meet this threshold, you cannot make a claim for pain and suffering.
From our experience representing both injured people and insurance companies, our lawyers understand how insurance companies value car accident injury cases. This knowledge helps us obtain the maximum recovery for you.
To receive the maximum compensation in any car accident case, your attorney has to be willing to try it. Trying cases is something the Law Offices of Aleixo and Murray has done successfully, time and time again, for clients in Taunton and neighboring communities such as Brockton, Dighton, Easton, Fall River, Franklin, Lakeville, Middleboro, New Bedford, Norton, and Raynham. We handle all car accident cases on a contingency fee basis, which means there are no attorney fees unless we make a recovery for you.
If you or a loved one is injured in an accident, you must act quickly to protect your rights. Be sure to do things such as collect witness names, take photographs (if possible) and immediately contact the Taunton, Massachusetts car accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Aleixo and Murray P.C. for a free personal injury consultation.
