In Massachusetts, car accidents are often the result of:
- Speeding: Speed limits vary on different roads and it is the driver's responsibility to travel at a safe distance behind other vehicles. Drivers are responsible for adjusting their speed based on the roadway conditions and weather.
- Drunk driving: Drunk driving causes thousands of injuries and deaths each year in Massachusetts and across the country. When someone is injured or killed in a drunk driving accident, compensation can be sought from the driver's auto insurance policy. If the driver was served liquor at a bar or other establishment, compensation may also be sought from the business' insurance policy.
- Cell phone use: Massachusetts has banned texting while driving for all drivers and all cell phone use for drivers under 18. Under the law, drivers are prohibited from texting while driving and e-mailing while the car is moving and while stopped at a traffic light or intersection.
- Pedestrian accidents: Pedestrians have the right of way in many situations, including while walking in crosswalks and along the sides of the road. But when drivers fail to give pedestrians the proper room, car accidents can occur. Across the country, a motor vehicle accident kills a pedestrian every two hours and one is injured every nine minutes.
