Car accidents that happen while on the job

Getting into a motor vehicle accident is a real risk for anyone behind the wheel. However, for someone who drives for a living, the risk is even higher simply from being on the road more. Also, the vehicle size makes it hard to stay safe. Workers such as truckers, delivery people and taxi drivers often receive the blame for these accidents, but they are also victims of other motorists' bad driving.

Driver causes fatal accident when attempting to make pass

Every time that drivers in Massachusetts change lanes, they should put on their turn signal to notify other drivers of their intended action, check their mirrors and blind spot and wait for space before executing their move. Too often, however, impatient and dangerous drivers fail to undertake these potentially life-saving steps and put others in danger with their erratic driving behavior.

Drug and alcohol testing after a serious truck accident

There is no question that drinking and driving is a dangerous practice and that too many Massachusetts residents have been harmed in collisions involving impaired individuals. As such, the state has implemented a number of laws that penalize men and women who have been found to have driven while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. However, private drivers are not the only ones who are expected to abide by safe driving practices. Commercial drivers, such as those who drive large trucks, must also remain sober when they are performing their operating duties.

Are dog bite laws different for children than adults?

In Massachusetts, dog owners are strictly liable for the harm that their pets cause when those animals attack and bite. This means that the owners are responsible for the harm their animals cause even if they had no prior knowledge of their pets' dangerous propensities. There are exceptions to this general rule, however, if, for example, a court finds that the bite victim provoked or antagonized the animal into action.

Motorcyclist killed in collision with car

According to reports, a recent accident in Worcester claimed the life of a 31-year-old woman. The victim was riding a motorcycle on Plantation Street when it appears that a vehicle turned in front of her to access the Interstate 290 on-ramp. The victim and her motorcycle crashed into the passenger side of the vehicle and in the collision the motorcyclist suffered fatal injuries.
