Boston Car Accident Attorneys
Injured in a Car Accident? Call (617) 870-3347.
In Boston, as in any other major city, dense traffic creates challenges for drivers. The stop-and-go rhythm of traffic and the close proximity of drivers to one another - not to mention pedestrians and bicyclists - are the leading causes of car accidents.
Some common causes of car crashes include:
- Driving and texting
- Dangerous road conditions
- Defective products, especially auto recalls
- Drunk driving
Thousands of car accidents occur every day in the United States, and the consequences can be catastrophic. From superficial scrapes to permanent and life-changing brain trauma or paralysis, injuries that are caused by negligent or impaired drivers can be both emotionally and financially taxing. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, you have the right to fair compensation. The state of your physical and financial health is too important to entrust it to just anyone. Seek the help of an experienced car accident lawyer in Boston today.

What You Should do after a Car Accident
You are required by law to remain on the scene of a car accident you were involved in even if you believe yourself to have been unharmed. How you act in the moments following an accident can go a long way towards determining your eligibility for compensation.
Immediately after being involved in an accident:
- Obtain the name, address, and phone number of all other drivers involved
- Obtain the make, model, year, and license plate of the other vehicles involved
- Call for police and inform them of any traffic violations another driver may have committed
- Request medical attention if you are injured
- Photograph the accident scene, other vehicles, and your injuries
- Notify your insurance company of your accident
- Speak with an injury attorney to determine your eligibility for filing a claim
- Exchange contact and insurance information
Don’t forget to obtain similar contact information from any witnesses to the accident; such testimony can be vital to your case and determining who was at fault. Our Boston personal injury lawyer can use all the above information to build you the strongest case possible for compensation.
