Massachusetts Car Accident Laws
Massachusetts laws concerning car accidents are fairly straightforward. Vehicle drivers must adhere to the rules of the road, and those who cause an accident due to reckless behavior can be held liable for damages. Additionally, anyone involved in a car accident is required to stop their vehicle at the scene and exchange contact information with other parties. If any person sustains bodily injury, or if property damage exceeds $1,000, law enforcement must be contacted immediately. Finally, it is important to note that Massachusetts is a no-fault state and that insurance companies will typically cover the costs of any injuries or damages up to predetermined limits.
What is the Statute of Limitations for Car Accidents in Massachusetts?
In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations for car accidents is three years. Any claim for damages resulting from an automobile-related accident must be filed with the court within three years of the incident. If a claim is not filed within this time limit, the court will likely dismiss it, and no compensation will be awarded. However, it is essential to note that if a case involves intentional misconduct or gross negligence, the statute of limitations may be extended.
