What should you do after
being involved in a car accident?
At Jason Stone Injury Lawyers in Massachusetts, we say that “You take care of you, and we’ll take care of everything else."
SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION
Ensure that you and anyone else involved in the accident is okay. If you’re able to move, get out of the way of oncoming traffic. Call 911 and report the accident.
You should always get a medical examination after an injury, even if you initially feel fine. Serious injuries may not become evident for days or weeks after the crash. You may have a spinal cord or head injury, such as a concussion, that you’re unaware of. This could lead to permanent injury or death if left untreated.
PROTECT THE SCENE OF THE ACCIDENT
Prevent further accidents by setting up flares and turning on your hazard lights. It’s a good idea to keep a flashlight in your vehicle to keep you safe (ask for a flashlight the next time you’re in the office), in case it’s dark and your vehicle’s lights are damaged in the accident.
This might be the furthest thing from your mind after an accident, but photographs can be invaluable in establishing who was at fault and how much damage was inflicted on the vehicles. Take pictures of the vehicles involved in the accident, your injuries, as well as weather and road conditions.
EXCHANGE CONTACT INFORMATION
Obtain the names, email addresses, phone numbers, addresses, and license plate numbers of all parties involved in the accident. Ask to see their registration and note which company each party has coverage with.
Witnesses can help determine how the accident occurred. If possible, speak to anyone who saw what happened and exchange phone numbers and email addresses. We may need to contact them later on to provide a statement as evidence in support of your case.
If police respond to the scene of the accident, take down the officer’s full name and identification number. All parties should be provided with a police report number. Make sure to record this number, as it will allow us or you to obtain a copy of the report.
CONTACT A MASSACHUSETTS CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
Don’t talk to them, talk to us. After the accident, you can contact your insurance company yourself to inform them of the accident, or you can contact us to do it for you.
Remember that insurance companies are not on your side. They will try to deny payment or try to pay the least amount possible for your accident and injuries. Conversations are often recorded, so whatever you say can and will be used against you.
At Jason Stone Injury Lawyers, our Massachusetts car accident lawyers will handle all communication with the insurance companies so that you can go about living your life. This helps us ensure that you receive proper compensation.

PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS
Why is it important to contact an
attorney after your car accident?
After an accident, some people hesitate to contact a Massachusetts personal injury attorney, believing they can handle the situation on their own. It’s true that you aren’t legally obligated to contact a Massachusetts personal injury lawyer, but doing so is in your best interests.
A car accident affects a victim physically, financially, and emotionally. Speaking (arguing) with insurance companies only increases your stress and anxiety while interrupting your normal, daily life. Hiring us will remove unnecessary stress and give you the confidence and comfort of knowing that our 20-plus years of experience is on your side.
Our Massachusetts car accident lawyers can help you in ways that will truly make a difference in the outcome of your car accident case.
5 Reasons to Contact Jason Stone Injury Lawyers After An Auto Accident
WE INVESTIGATE YOUR ACCIDENT
Fault is not always easy to determine in a car accident. Even when it seems clear, you still need the proper evidence to prove it. Our team will collect physical evidence, hire investigators and retain expert witnesses, take photos of the scene, obtain a copy of the accident report from the police, and speak to witnesses.
Determining fault can make a big difference in the amount of compensation that you receive in a settlement offer. What’s more, this step is necessary, because you may not receive any compensation at all if negligence can’t be proven.
WE REPORT YOUR CLAIM
Reporting an injury claim to the insurance company (even your own) can be a complex process. You may not know how to file a claim, or whom to file against, or to what benefits you are entitled.
Sometimes claims may need to be filed with more than one party. For example, if a defective part was involved in the accident, there may be manufacturing companies involved. As your Massachusetts car accident lawyers, we can determine what parties are involved and file all necessary legal claims on your behalf.
WE GATHER THE Evidence
Between medical records, witness statements, photographs, police reports, incident reports, and more, obtaining the evidence needed to prove your case takes a village to accomplish. Our experienced team and state-of-the-art case management system ensure that the correct information is obtained from the correct entity, and no request for information falls through the cracks.
WE HANDLE ALL Negotiations
It might be tempting to take the first settlement amount offered to you after your accident, but it’s worth it to be careful.
Insurance companies know that after an accident you’re overwhelmed with stress and financial loss, and they often take advantage of this situation by offering a low payout. They know that you may be relieved to receive any sort of compensation at all. Once you accept a payout, there’s no turning back. You could miss out on thousands of dollars.
Our Massachusetts car accident attorneys at Jason Stone Injury Lawyers have been reviewing settlement offers from insurance companies for over 20 years and are able to advise you whether an offer is a good one. If it isn’t, or if it doesn’t include everything that should be included, then we will continue to aggressively negotiate with the insurance company until we get you more money. It’s important to us that you receive an amount that compensates you for all of the ddifficulties that you have experienced through no fault of your own.
WE TAKE YOUR CASE TO COURT IF NEEDED
No one wants to sue, but sometimes you have to. Usually, injuries caused by car accidents can be settled out of court. However, we have learned that the best way to ensure a settlement we can be proud of is to prepare for trial from the very beginning. When the insurance company extends a low settlement offer, it is a good practice to be ready to file a lawsuit and hold their feet to the fire if they don’t meet our demands.
COMMON CAUSES OF
“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, distracted driving caused an average of 9 deaths and 1,000 injuries a day in 2018,” said Kelly Nee, chief of the BU Police Department, “We see it constantly.”
BU Today reported that as of Sunday, February 23, 2020, drivers in the Bay State will be required to use Bluetooth or other hands-free technology if they want to talk on their phone while operating a motor vehicle. Drivers can touch their phones once to activate hands-free mode, and they can use one earphone or earbud. They can also touch the phone to control GPS apps like Waze, as long as the phone is in a holder, such as on the dashboard or windshield, rather than in their hand.
This is when a driver goes over the posted speed limit or drives too fast for road conditions. Many drivers choose to ignore speed limits and go 10, 20, 30 MPH or more over the limit.
Speeding is the second most common cause of motor vehicle collisions. When you speed, you increase the chance of losing control and reduce your reaction time to unexpected objects in the roadway.
The consumption of alcohol has a great impact on a person’s ability to drive. It causes blurry vision, delayed reaction times, and poor judgment. In Massachusetts, a motorist can be convicted of an OUI (often called a “DUI”) for operating a motor vehicle in any public place while “under the influence” or with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or more.
Aggressive driving, speeding, tailgating, and sudden lane changes are all forms of reckless driving. These types of drivers are often impatient in traffic and are the cause of many senseless accidents.
Rain, fog, ice, hail, wind, and snow have been the cause of countless car accidents. Inclement weather greatly reduces a driver’s visibility. These types of conditions lead to slick roads, increasing stopping distance and making it difficult to control the vehicle.
This is when a driver is too tired to remain alert. Driving while drowsy can be just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated. A drowsy driver has delayed reaction times, blurred vision, poor judgment, and-even worse-could fall asleep at the wheel, resulting in a deadly accident.
