Massachusetts really does have it all to offer tourists. There is delicious seafood, beautiful islands, patriotic landmarks, rich history, great music, and interesting art.  All mixed with mountains, green pastures, farmlands, large forests, small villages, big cities, rocky shores, and more. 

Boston is home to the Freedom Trail, a very important part of America’s history. There is a red brick line that takes visitors from the Visitor Center in the Boston Common and extends all the way to a 54-gun frigate known as the USS Constitution at the Charlestown Navy Yard. Here you can visit the burial site of Paul Revere, John Hancock, and the first woman to step off the Mayflower.

Unfortunately, while driving across the US, some snowbirds will be injured in a car accident in Massachusetts.  They will need to consult with a personal injury lawyer.

Anyone involved in a car accident in Massachusetts may sue for damages. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Massachusetts is three (3) years from the date of the accident. This means that you have three (3) years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit for injuries sustained from the accident. If you do not file a lawsuit within this time period, you will most likely be barred from suing for damages related to the accident.

In cases involving an innocent plaintiff, joint and several liability applies.

Cross-border car accidents are very complicated since most travellers have their own car insurance from their respective state or province.  Each state and province also has different rules that apply to car accidents. That’s where Snowbird Accidents comes in!
