Massachusetts Car Accident Insurance Benefits
As a MA car accident lawyer, I have handled many different car accident claims over the years. These accidents cause very serious injuries. It is important to know about your rights if you were injured in a car accident. While each case is different, the Massachusetts car accident insurance benefits you are entitled to always stays the same. Here are some of them:
Your insurance company for the car you were in will pay your the “reasonable and necessary” medical bills you incur. If you have private health insurance, the car insurance company will pay the first $ 2000 in medical bills. Once $2000 in bills is paid, the rest of the bills will be paid by your health insurance company. If you do not have private health insurance, the car insurance company will pay up to $ 8,000 in medical bills.
If you lost time from work you may collect 75% of your lost wages from the car insurance company. In order to do, your employer must confirm in writing that you missed time. You also need a note from your doctor excusing you from work.
Pain and Suffering
If your medical bills are at least $ 2,000, then you may pursue a claim for paid and suffering against the car insurance company that insures the driver who caused the accident. These damages are not subject to state of federal taxes.
