Pedestrian Accident Insurance Claims in Massachusetts
In order to establish negligence in a pedestrian accident, the injured person, the plaintiff, must prove that the person at fault or the defendant failed to fulfill a legal duty of care through an action or inaction, that they owed a legal duty to them, this failure leads to an accident and the injuries sustained, and that they were hurt because of a result of all of these things. Potentially liable parties for pedestrian accidents can include a driver of a vehicle, the party responsible for maintaining the road, or the owner of the parking lot or sidewalk where the accident occurred. We will work diligently in order to determine the liable party for your pedestrian accident.
