Westborough Driver Negligence Attorney
When you get behind the wheel of a car, you have the right to expect other drivers to obey the rules of the road. Coming to a proper stop at a stop sign or traffic light isn’t just a suggestion; it’s the law. T-bone, side-swipe and rear-end collisions at intersections often cause the most serious injuries because drivers and passengers in the struck vehicle are unprepared for the impact, often at roadway speeds.

If you were injured or lost a loved one in a motor vehicle accident in which another driver failed to obey the law at an intersection, you are entitled to seek full and fair compensation from the insurance company held liable for insuring the negligent driver. In the event the other party was underinsured or uninsured, you have a valid claim against your own uninsured motorist (UIM) policy.
Eden Rafferty is recognized as one of the central Massachusetts area’s preeminent law firms protecting the rights of plaintiffs injured in motor vehicle accidents throughout the MetroWest region. Intersection accidents often involve he-said-she-said testimony, and eyewitness accounts are notoriously unreliable. That’s why we work with independent specialists to reconstruct the accident and determine the full extent of liability and injury damages. Our team of attorneys and legal staff tenaciously fights for maximum compensation and present the clearest, strongest evidence possible on your behalf.
Massachusetts is a comparative liability state. Even if you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, you may seek compensation up to the proportion of injury damages assigned to the other driver. For example, if the other driver is found to be 80 percent at fault for the accident, you may seek compensation equaling up to 80 percent of your financial damages for medical care, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.
