Holiday car accidents are a bad way to start the New Year

Millions of Americans take to the roads each holiday season. Many travel to visit friends and family members so that they may celebrate with individuals that they love. Others travel in order to go on vacations that they may not be able to take during other times of the year. Massachusetts residents may take long or short drives in order to reach remote destinations in order to fulfill their holiday plans.

Can I get sick from a dog bite?

Dogs are great companions to many Massachusetts residents and enrich their owners' lives through love and companionship. However, it is not uncommon for dogs and humans to have aggressive and sometimes even dangerous interactions. When dogs bite ,the consequences can be medically and emotionally significant.

Negligent drivers put motorcyclists in harm's way

The following scenario is not an uncommon sight to witness on Massachusetts roads: two drivers approach an intersection in opposing directions, and the vehicle that must yield to oncoming traffic hurries through the intersection so that it does not have to wait any longer than necessary. The actions of the vehicle's driver are dangerous because the driver's conduct is potentially negligent and their hurry to get across the intersection may put others in the path of collisions.

Are truck drivers subject to distracted driving laws?

In order to operate a large commercial truck or bus on a Massachusetts road or highway a driver usually must possess a special license that demonstrates their capacity to handle such a massive vehicle. This special license is an important element of gaining the right and responsibility of truck driving as 18-wheelers, semis and other large rigs can be incredibly dangerous when they are poorly operated by their drivers. The possession of the special license is a sign that a driver understands the rules and regulations that apply to them when they are operating their commercial automobiles.

Strict liability applies in dog bite incidents

People like to say that a dog is a man's best friend and for many Massachusetts residents canine companions make their lives better. Wet noses and warm fur are only a few of the traits that draw individuals to dogs as pets. Additionally, some people feel safer knowing that dogs are on guard in their homes and are listening for possible threats.
