The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is considered a no-fault insurance state. This means if you're involved in an auto accident, you're first step is to open a claim with your own insurance company; regardless of who is at fault for the accident. However, if you've suffered serious injuries like a broken bone, serious and disfiguring scars or you've lost your hearing or vision, you may be able to file a personal injury claim.
Facing any type of criminal charge is stressful and oftentimes, those who are arrested are unaware of the severity of the charges they're facing. Regardless of how minor the charges are, you need to get help from a criminal defense attorney to provide you with a strong defense. Some of the charges you may need an attorney for include:
It doesn't matter what field you're employed in, what your lifestyle is or how much money you have, an OUI arrest can happen to anyone. It only takes one bad decision; you left a company party, you went out with friends after work or you're coming back from a family get-together and you're not paying attention as much attention as you should be causing the appearance of erratic driving. Your driving catches the eye of a police officer, they assume you're intoxicated and you're pulled over under the suspicion of OUI.
