Those who become involved in a car accident are at risk for suffering serious injuries. If it was determined that one driver was found to be at fault for causing the crash, the injured person might choose to file a personal injury lawsuit, which may result in reimbursement for some damages associated with the crash. In most cases, an attorney may use the injured person’s medical records and the police report, among other pieces of evidence, to demonstrate the extent of the damages that were sustained by the injured person. If the attorney cannot reach an acceptable settlement, the case may be taken to court. Source:, “Teen, Two Women Seriously Injured in Fiery Somerville Crash“, Dialynn Dwyer, March 20, 2015
