Boston Winter Road Accident Attorneys

Full Compensation for Winter Road Accidents in Boston, MA

The rules of the road change in winter. When conditions are slippery, drivers need to adjust their driving to keep themselves and others safe. For example, driving the posted speed limit on an icy winter road could be considered an act of extreme carelessness.

If you were injured due to another driver’s failure to adjust to winter road conditions, you may be able to pursue compensation for your losses.

At Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C., we have extensive experience handling auto accident claims for clients in the Boston area and throughout Massachusetts. We know how bad the roads can get in the winter. Unfortunately, it’s common to have winter road accidents in Boston, MA. It depends on our attorneys if you or a loved one has been injured due to icy roads.

Careless Drivers on Winter Roads

It’s not hopeless if you have been hurt in an accident. We have years of experience in the legal field, and we work hard and smart to achieve positive results. Some important factors to consider in a winter road accident include:

  • Driver Responsibility: Drivers must be cautious on winter roads. When the speed or failure to allow enough distance between cars to safely stop, they are not exercising due caution. Depending upon other circumstances, these drivers may be found solely liable for car accident injuries.
  • Multiple Car Accidents: Winter road conditions often give rise to pileups and other multiple car accidents. It can be very difficult to demonstrate any one driver was more negligent than the other. Often, it is found that the winter road conditions were responsible for the accident and no driver was at fault.
  • Maintenance Problems: In some cases, a party charged with maintaining winter roads may be found liable for damages. Parking lots, driveways, and other areas must be cleared of ice and snow in a timely manner to protect visitors from harm. Failure to do so can result in traffic accidents and slip-and-fall accidents.

How To Prove Liability In A Boston Winter Road Accident

Winter vehicle accidents that occur in and around the Boston area often become very complicated when it comes to determining liability. It is crucial that you work with an attorney who can use their resources to obtain and preserve evidence. In these cases, proving liability will revolve around:

  • Gathering any evidence from the scene of the crash, including a photo or video surveillance that may be available, statements from eyewitnesses, debris around the accident scene, and more.
  • Working with law enforcement officials to fully investigate the cause of the crash and to obtain a complete accident report.
  • Enlist the assistance of qualified accident reconstruction experts if necessary, to reconstruct the scene for insurance purposes or for a jury.

Whether a Boston winter road accident was caused by the carelessness or negligence of another driver, faulty roadway maintenance, or a defective vehicle part, our team will work to get to the bottom of what happened in order to obtain full compensation for losses.

How Much Compensation Is Available To Boston Winter Road Accident Victims?

There is no set amount of compensation available to victims of winter vehicle accidents in Boston. Rather, the total amount of compensation awarded will vary depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding each particular case. At Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C., our Boston car accident attorneys are regularly able to help clients recover the following:

  • Coverage of all medical expenses related to the accident
  • Lost income if a victim is unable to work while they recover
  • Any household out-of-pocket expenses they incur
  • Loss of quality of life damages
  • Pain and suffering damages

How Long Do You Have To File A Claim After A Boston Winter Car Accident?

Victims of vehicle accidents in Massachusetts have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit in court to recover compensation. The Massachusetts personal injury statute of limitations is three years from the date the injury occurred. This gives Boston winter road accident victims a three-year window with which to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent party. Failing to file a lawsuit within this timeframe will result in the victim being unable to recover the compensation they deserve.

Please understand that insurance carrier reporting deadlines typically fall very soon after an accident occurs. If you fail to report the accident to your insurance carrier within a day or two, your claim could be delayed or denied.
