Massachusetts Pedestrian Crossing Laws
It’s not always safe out there for pedestrians. Car collisions can result in serious injuries, including broken bones, concussions, and damage to muscles or organs. When a pedestrian gets hit by a car, it could result in permanent disability or even death. In Massachusetts, right-of-way laws state that a car must stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Additionally, pedestrians have the right of way in most other situations. A pedestrian’s right-of-way even trumps a bike’s. If someone hit you while you were crossing the street, state laws give you relatively firm grounds for a lawsuit. These lawsuits can result in high judgments and settlements. In fact, pedestrians can routinely settle for millions of dollars in a personal injury case. But to win a pedestrian accident case with a price tag like that, you need an attorney.
The Benefits of a Pedestrian Injury Lawyer
A lawyer can help their pedestrian injury clients sue for costs related to:
- Medical bills
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Insurance costs
In addition, an attorney can help you assert a claim for punitive damages. Punitive damages are a way that a plaintiff can punish a defendant for negligence or misconduct in a personal injury case. They’re less of a way for you to recover damages and more of a way to make an example of the defendant. However, it can be difficult to win punitive damages in a pedestrian accident case without an attorney.
