When it comes to dealing with the at fault driver, or more specifically that person’s liability insurer, there is no duty to cooperate. Quite the contrary. Liability carriers will want to limit liability by minimizing the severity of injuries or by trying to find ways to shift blame to the injured person or another driver. You must exercise caution and not rush into a settlement until the full extent of your injuries are determined and other damages are assessed completely, and you will want to have an experienced personal injury attorney acting on your behalf. You will want your settlement or damage award to fully compensate for your injuries.
Legal firms serving the residents of Massachusetts, such as The Law Offices of Terrence A. Low and Anthony J. Canata, have extensive experience handling personal injury cases.
