Massachusetts No-Fault Car Accident Laws Explained

Massachusetts follows a "no-fault" system in regards to car accidents. This means that injured drivers and passengers must first turn to their own personal injury protection coverage insurance companies for compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and other out-of-pocket costs after a collision regardless of who actually caused the crash. You may only step outside of this no-fault system and file a third-party claim against the driver who caused your accident if:

  • Your reasonable medical expenses exceed $2,000, and/or
  • You suffered injuries resulting in permanent and serious disfigurement, fractured bone, or vision or hearing loss

If your case meets these requirements, you must file a claim against the responsible driver within three years of the date of the crash to preserve your right to sue. If this statute of limitations expires, your case will likely be thrown out of court and you will permanently lose your ability to seek damages. For this reason, if you are considering filing a personal injury lawsuit, it is crucial you discuss your situation with a skilled attorney as soon as possible to ensure you are compliant with all applicable deadlines.

Causes of Car Accidents

    Distracted driving and driver negligence are some of the leading contributors to car accidents. This includes speeding, failure to stop or yield, failure to use proper care, and using a cell phone. When a driver negligently or carelessly operates a vehicle and as a result causes serious injury to another, the driver should be held legally responsible for the injury.

    Common Causes Of Car Accidents:

    • Distraction (use of a cell phone, texting, excessively loud radio).
    • Driving at an excessive speed.
    • Failing to stop or yield at a stop sign or traffic light.
    • Roads in disrepair or improperly maintained
    • Driving while intoxicated or impaired due to use of alcohol or drugs.

    The person or people responsible for your accident have a responsibility to help you through recovery. People have car insurance for this exact reason.
