It should be common knowledge that drivers in Massachusetts and throughout the country are responsible for the safety of other motorists, and that includes passengers in a driver's own vehicle. When motorists fail to live up to that responsibility and their actions are deemed to be negligent, then people who were injured as a result of a car accident are entitled to compensation.
Cases in which serious injuries occur on the job may not be as clear-cut as personal injury cases between private citizens. In either situation, however, a competent personal injury attorney may be necessary to ensure the victim is fully compensated for damages.
As everyone knows, car accidents can result in serious injuries, but the risk of injury typically increases when motorists are not wearing seat belts.
