What if I’m not sure who caused my accident?
Our team will investigate fault to help determine your rights to compensation. Massachusetts is a modified comparative fault state, meaning that even if you are partially at fault for causing the car accident, you may still recover some damages. A plaintiff whose fault is greater than 50% is barred from recovery (M.G.L.A. 231 § 85). If it’s determined that you’re partially at fault for the accident, the total amount of damages you receive will be reduced by the percentage that you are found at fault.
