In Massachusetts, if you are found 51 percent or more at fault in a car accident, you cannot recover any compensation for your losses. If you are 50 percent or less at fault, you can obtain compensation, but it will be reduced by the percentage of your fault. As a result, insurance companies have an incentive to investigate accidents and shift as much blame as possible onto you, the injured victim. After all, the more at fault you are, the less they have to pay.
That is why at Aiken & Aiken, P.C., our Massachusetts car accident attorneys work with accident investigators, engineers, medical doctors and other experts when preparing and presenting auto accident cases to opposing adjusters, defense lawyers, judges and juries. We establish a balance of power in the courtroom to ensure that our clients receive fair treatment and fair compensation.

Covering the Cost of Serious Injuries
Working with medical doctors, economists, life care planners and vocational rehabilitation specialists, our attorneys seek to project and recover costs associated with the following kinds of injuries sustained in car and truck accidents :
- Brain injuries and spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
- Wrongful death
Thorough, Innovative Case Preparation
We produce day-in-the-life videos of our clients, explaining to jurors the disability, pain, and reduction in quality of life caused by the negligence of another driver. After determining your future medical costs and how your injuries have impacted your life, we challenge the insurance company’s findings, using skilled investigative work and finding facts that expose the fault of their client.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Claims (UM/UIM)
If an uninsured or underinsured driver hit you, you may be able to recover compensation from your own insurer. To determine if you have this type of coverage, you should review your policy and contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you interpret that policy. If an underinsured driver hits you, his or her insurer may offer you a settlement soon after your accident. It is always best to talk with a lawyer regarding your options before signing any offers.
