First Steps

What to Do if You are in a Massachusetts ATV Accident

1. Gather as much information as possible about all of the vehicles involved in the Massachusetts accident. This includes the license plate, make and model of all involved motor vehicles. You should also note the operators’ names, addresses and license numbers, in addition to the vehicle owners’ names and addresses, their insurance companies and their coverage information. Any person who fails to stop or flees the scene of a Massachusetts accident involving an ATV without first providing this information may face fines or penalties.

2. Document the direction and position of all of the vehicles involved in the Massachusetts accident, as well as any other factors that may have contributed to the accident, such as the weather and lighting conditions. You should also take care to note the names and addresses of any and all witnesses. This information is essential to construct the strongest case possible that will allow our Massachusetts ATV accident lawyers to obtain the maximum compensation for you that is available.

3. Use a camera or cell phone to take pictures of the scene of the accident, any visible injuries, damage to the vehicles involved and the location of the accident.

4. Seek medical treatment right away. You should call an ambulance or be driven to the nearest hospital even if you do not appear to have serious injuries. Doctors at the hospital will examine you to make sure that you did not sustain a concussion or internal injuries which may not be clearly visible but can be fatal if left untreated. It is also vital that you inform all medical professionals that treat you of your accident and identify all parts of your body where you are experiencing pain. Make sure to follow your doctor’s treatment plan and maintain a record of all the dates and locations that you receive medical care. Our Boston, Massachusetts ATV accident injury lawyers will help you obtain compensation to cover these medical expenses.

5. Any Massachusetts ATV accident that involves injury or more than $50 in damage must be reported to the police within a reasonable amount of time. Additionally, an ATV accident report form must be submitted to the Massachusetts Environmental Police within 48 hours after the accident.

6. Do not make any statements to insurance companies until you have consulted with an experienced Massachusetts personal injury lawyer who specializes in ATV accidents. Although you must cooperate with your insurance company, you should not provide any written or recorded verbal statements without first speaking with a lawyer. Insurance companies will likely try to settle your case for as little money as possible, meaning that you will not receive as much money as you are owed if you make a statement that releases your rights or otherwise hurts your claim. The Boston ATV accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates will handle all of your correspondence with insurance companies to make sure that your rights are always fully protected and your interests are defended.

7. A Statute of Limitations in Massachusetts restricts the time you have to file a Massachusetts ATV accident claim. It is crucial that you act quickly and contact an expert Boston ATV accident injury attorney so that you do not lose your right to recover compensation for your damages. Our Boston ATV accident lawyers will aggressively pursue your case so that you receive all of the money to which you are entitled.
