What do I do if I was injured in Boston on Vacation or while Traveling for Work? Boston Injury Lawyer Offers Advice
If you were injured while traveling in Boston, you still have a right to collect damages for an injury even if you’re not a Massachusetts’ state resident.
No matter what state you’re visiting Boston from, you’re protected by Massachusetts’ state laws when it comes to injuries that occur within the state. This includes car accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall cases, Uber & Lyft accidents and more.
Whether you are in the area due to business or leisure, Spada Law Group has more than 30 years of personal injury law experience that we’re ready to put to use representing you and your case.
If You were Injured in an Accident while Visiting Boston or Massachusetts, You’re Entitled to Compensation
If you’re involved in an accident while visiting Boston, you’re entitled to the same kind of compensation that a Massachusetts resident would be.
If you’re injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation including:
- Medical Costs
- Pain & Suffering
- Lost wages
- Car damages - whether a personal vehicle or a rental
- And more, depending on your injury claim
While perhaps more unfortunate, injuries and accidents can be more common when you’re traveling as opposed to being home. Maybe you’re driving around more during the day - whether for business meetings or exploring Boston - and depending on where you’re from, you might not be accustomed to the rather aggressive driving habits we unfortunately are known for here.
The likelihood of getting into a car crash can certainly increase if you are visiting an unfamiliar city, perhaps driving a rental car you’re less familiar with than your own, and experiencing a different driving culture as we mentioned previously.
In addition to car accidents, there are other accidents that could lead to injuries during your visit to Boston, such as:
- Getting injured on a rental property, such as at an AirBnB.
- Slipping and falling in a convention center or a hotel lobby.
- Renting an electric scooter that is defective or damaged in some way.
- Getting into a pedestrian or biking accident.
