A: Potentially, yes. The fact that he has a suspended license is a different issue and he will have to answer for that. However, being injured by someone else's negligence is a separate matter and he would have the same rights as anyone else. There are certain threshold requirements in MA that must be met to be able to make a claim for pain and suffering, but if he meets those, then a claim can be made.

A: If he's not at fault, and the other driver is, sure. I've recovered for DUI's who were rear-ended. They were still charged but that didn't mean that someone could hit them for free. If you need the names of attorneys in Mass feel free to call me.
