Car crashes can be terrifying and the injuries long-lasting or even fatal. More than 180 people died in Massachusetts auto accidents in 2017. Many serious accidents occur in and around Springfield: known as “the crossroads of New England,” the city has a large volume of car and truck traffic, particularly on well-traveled highways like I-90 and I-91.

Auto accidents can occur for many reasons. The most common causes include:
No matter the type of car or truck accident you’re involved in, you should seek immediate medical attention if you are injured. Then contact an attorney as soon as possible after your accident so we can quickly move to protect the evidence and begin building a strong case.

Our firm is by your side throughout your case, filing insurance claims, making sure you understand the process, answering your questions and pressing for the full, fair compensation you deserve.
Massachusetts is one of a handful of states that follows a no-fault law for auto accident claims. What this means is that regardless of who is at fault for the accident, the injured person’s insurance pays for medical bills and lost wages. So, even in a case where another driver crosses the center line, each motorist’s insurance company pays for their individual injuries.
You can, however, hold the at-fault driver accountable under certain circumstances:
When your injury claim qualifies to be filed outside the no-fault parameters, you may also seek compensation for noneconomic damages you suffered, such as pain and suffering. Additionally, the no-fault law in Massachusetts does not apply to property damage, so you can file a claim against the at-fault driver to cover those losses.
