Filing a Personal Injury Claim After a Fall River Motor Vehicle Collision

After you are involved in any type of crash, it’s important to seek medical help right away, even if you don’t feel hurt. A doctor or other medical professional will assess your injuries and devise a treatment plan, according to your injuries and their severity. Seeking immediate medical help is a critical step to your recovery, as well as to your potential personal injury claim for damages.

The injury claim process will begin with your attorney reviewing police reports, witness statements, medical records, and other evidence crucial to the accident to determine negligence on the part of the person, or persons, responsible for the crash. Often, auto accidents involve multiple vehicles, such as a recent crash on Langley Street in Fall River where a service truck driver crashed into multiple other automobiles and residences

In assessing potential damages, bills you have incurred for medical and hospital expenses, time lost from work, plus projected costs for future treatment will be used, along with other factors. Damages are largely based on the severity of your injuries, length of recovery, and projected recovery success. If a person is severely injured and unable to make a full recovery, suffers life-threatening injuries, or is killed in the accident, these factors will greatly affect the value of damages awarded in your Fall River car accident case.

In January 2021, an 18-year-old man was killed when he lost control of his vehicle while turning a curve near Route 177. According to data from the city, there were five fatal accidents in Fall River in both 2017 and 2018. If an accident turns fatal due to actions by a negligent vehicle operator, the qualified personal injury experts at Tapalian Law can help determine your eligibility to file a Massachusetts wrongful death claim after the death of your loved one. While we know that money is unable to replace a tragic loss of life, financial compensation can ease any financial stress caused by this traumatic event.

Car Crashes Involving Pedestrians

Some Fall River car accidents also involve pedestrians. In May 2021, a 55-year-old pedestrian was severely injured in the Heritage State Park by a hit-and-run driver. In addition, a 24-year-old man was injured when a hit-and-run driver crashed into him as he walked down Brayton Avenue. Car Accident Attorney David Tapalian can help those injured by other drivers in Fall River, even if the at-fault driver has fled the scene. There are various courses of action we can explore to seek compensation after a hit and run accident, even if the driver is unable to be located.
