After a Boston car accident, those who wish to pursue compensation should contact an attorney to assist them through the complicated process towards recovery. Legal support is more than just representation during litigation. Instead, an attorney can provide critical assistance during all stages of the claims process. Boston personal injury claims require a thorough investigation of all aspects of the incident. Neglecting to engage in an appropriate and comprehensive investigation can lead to the demise of a case.
Investigations that occur shortly after an accident tend to result in the most fruitful outcomes. Prompt investigation can help avoid missing the statute of limitations or other crucial procedural deadlines. In some situations, attorneys can help preserve the accident scene and gather other time-sensitive information. Gathering evidence close to when the accident occurred can help strengthen the victim’s case. In many instances, injury victims are understandably focused on their physical and psychological recovery or are otherwise unable to get to the scene; in these situations, an attorney can ensure a timely investigation.
Despite facially similar characteristics, every accident is unique and requires an independent analysis of the situation. Many contributing factors may impact why an accident occurred. Skilled accident attorneys understand which facts and evidence are essential to a successful case. In many cases, evidence may not be easily accessible because of various reasons. However, attorneys have the legal knowledge and skills to gain access to crucial evidence. For instance, in a truck accident, a truck driver’s employee may refuse to provide details about their hiring and training protocols- a skilled attorney can cite the relevant laws that require the employer to provide that information.
Further, lawyers can work with expert witnesses and other relevant professionals to investigate and review pertinent information. For example, attorneys have access to medical professionals that can help decipher medical findings and course of treatment that can help establish appropriate damages. Moreover, attorneys can work with accident reconstructionists to map out the series of events that led to an accident.
For example, a recent Woburn, Massachusetts accident brings to light a situation that may require a thorough investigation. According to reports, the accident occurred when a sedan and SUV were traveling northbound. The sedan veered and slammed into a guardrail. When the sedan began moving across the travel lanes, it crossed with the SUV—resulting in the collision. The sedan driver succumbed to his injuries at a local hospital, and the other driver and minor passengers suffered minor injuries. Police report that the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
