Quincy Car Accident Lawyer

Car accidents have many causes, but negligence is usually the underlying cause. Victims can suffer mild to severe injuries and economic loss. Sometimes, car accidents cause catastrophic injuries that affect the quality of a person’s life and their ability to earn a living. The Quincy, MA, car accident lawyers at Marasco & Nesselbush are ready to help victims seek compensation for their injuries.

They Can Negotiate With Insurance Companies

Insurance companies have high-powered lawyers on their side and years of experience under their belt. You don’t want to face them alone. Even if insurance companies offer you a settlement, they don’t have your best interest at heart. After all, it’s business for them, and the less they pay you, the better for them.

Marasco & Nesslebush’s accident attorneys know all the tricks and tactics insurance companies employ to deny you compensation and how to counter them.

They Know All the Damages You Can Recover

Without a background in personal injury law, you may not know the full extent of the damages you can recover.

Our car accident lawyers can evaluate the crash’s effects on every aspect of your life and the damages the law allows you to recover. They’ll work to pursue fair compensation for your injuries.

You Don’t Pay Any Fee Unless You Win

At Marasco & Nesslebush, our skilled and knowledgeable car accident lawyers work on a contingency fee arrangement, meaning you won’t pay a dime unless you win. So you don’t have to worry about paying upfront.

Work With Auto Accident Lawyers With a Track Record of Winning

The success of your car accident claim and the amount of money you can recover depends on multiple factors. While nobody can guarantee the outcome of your case, you should work with a car accident lawyer who consistently gets top results.

Our car accident lawyers at Marasco & Nesselbush have an impressive track record of recovering several seven-figure settlements and verdicts for our clients. Here are some of our noteworthy recoveries for our clients:

  • $6,200,000 awarded to a client who sustained serious injuries in a rollover crash caused by a distracted driver
  • $4,500,000 recovered for a client who sustained a traumatic brain injury in a car crash
  • $2,500,000 awarded to the estate of a woman once M&N uncovered the truth about a fatal pedestrian accident
  • $1,400,000 won for a family whose son passed away due to a brain injury sustained in a high-speed car accident
  • $1,250,000 recovered for a young woman injured as a passenger in a recklessly operated vehicle
  • $1,000,000 recovered to compensate a client for emotional distress after witnessing a tragic car accident

What Factors Influence a Car Accident Settlement?

Several factors affect how much you can recover as compensation, including the following:

Massachusetts’ Modified Comparative Negligence Rule

If you were partly at fault for the accident, the percentage of your fault would reduce the amount of damages you can recover. Under the Massachusetts modified comparative negligence rule codified in Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 231 Section 85, you won’t recover any amount if your share of the blame is 51 percent or more.

If you share less than 51 percent of the blame, your compensation will be reduced in proportion to your share of the fault.

The Severity of the Injuries You Sustained

Generally, the more severe your injuries, the more money you can get as compensation. If the injuries caused you to miss work days or will affect your ability to work in the future, you can recover damages for lost and lost future income.

Strength of Your Evidence

As the plaintiff, you must prove fault to recover in a personal injury case. If you have strong evidence proving the other party caused the accident, you will probably recover higher compensation.

Medical Bills

In a successful car accident case, you’ll be reimbursed for all medical expenses. So, if you incur more costs in treating your injuries, you may recover more money.

Parties' Willingness To Settle

If the insurance company is willing to settle, it is more likely to accept your claim. And when you hire a skilled and experienced trial lawyer ready to take your case to a jury if necessary, insurance companies are usually more willing to settle with you.

At Marasco & Nesselbush, our accident attorneys prepare every case for trial if the insurance company isn’t cooperative. And our reputation as award-winning trial attorneys gets insurers to negotiate in good faith.

Liability in Massachusetts Car Accidents

Massachusetts is a “no-fault” car accident state, so your insurance company pays for your medical expenses, property damage, and other economic losses, even if you were at fault.

Under Massachusetts law, your auto insurance policy’s personal injury protection, or PIP, coverage covers your medical bills, lost wages, and other related expenses up to $8,000.

However, you sue the at-fault party to recover non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, if your medical bills exceed $2,000 or the injury led to disfigurement or loss of bodily function.

Damages You Can Recover in a Car Accident Lawsuit ​

In a lawsuit against the at-fault party, you can recover economic and non-economic damages, including the following:

  • Medical bills, including future bills and rehabilitation costs
  • Cost of medical equipment and drugs
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Lost future income
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional distress

How Long Do You Have to File a Car Accident Lawsuit in Massachusetts?

In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations for injuries or property damage caused by a car accident is three years. It starts counting from the day of the accident.
