Cape Cod Car Accident Attorney
Personal Injury Lawyer for Auto Accident Victims
Every year, thousands of drivers are involved in car accidents as a result of the negligent, intoxicated, or reckless driving of others. While some of these accidents are minor and cause little vehicle damage, others can be devastating and life-altering. If you are facing serious car accident injuries or you have lost a loved one as a result of a car accident in Cape Cod, it is imperative that you contact the Law Office of Scott B. Brilliant. I know the pain and suffering that you are experiencing and am prepared to help you obtain a favorable outcome in your personal injury matter.
I, Attorney Scott B. Brilliant, am a former insurance adjuster and I have a unique understanding of how insurance companies operate. These companies do not want to help you – they are looking out for their own interests and do not care about your well-being. Do not try to navigate through the complexities of the legal system without my assistance. I have more than two decades of experience in personal injury law, and I have collected hundreds of thousands of dollars for past clients. As a skilled Cape Cod car accident lawyer, I take the time to get to know you and your goals and then create an effective plan of action in order to achieve a favorable outcome on your behalf.
I bring 20 years of experience representing clients in car accident cases, including those involving:
- Drunk driving accidents
- Left-turn accidents
- Rear-end accidents
- Uninsured/underinsured drivers
- Back injuries
- Airbag injuries
- Broken bones
- Seatbelt injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries / TBI
Determining Liability in Car Accidents
Massachusetts is a modified no-fault insurance state. Under these laws, a person can be held liable for an accident when they were over 50% at fault. While Massachusetts requires that your own insurance company pay for the injuries you incurred in a car accident (up to your personal policy limit), you are permitted to file a lawsuit against the responsible party for non-monetary damages, such as pain and suffering, if those damages exceed $2,000.
In Massachusetts, there is a set of standards in place that help identify when a driver is more than 50% at-fault for an accident. Some of these standards include:
- Rear-end collision
- Failure to signal
- Collision with a parked vehicle
- Operating in the wrong direction
- Failure to obey the laws for driving
- Collision while merging onto a highway
- Collision when entering at a “T” intersection
- Leaving from a parked position, driveway, parking lot, or alley
- Collision while making a U-turn across the travel path of another vehicle
- Collision on the wrong side of the road
- Out-of-lane collision
- Collision while backing up
If you or a loved one was involved in a car accident where the driver violated any of the above standards, you could pursue legal action to recover compensation. Although these standards provide a guideline for determining fault, these cases are often not so straightforward. Having an experienced attorney on your side can make all the difference in proving the other driver’s negligence.
