Working for victims of winter car accidents

Car accidents happen throughout the year, but it may seem to readers of this Worcester personal injury blog that some of the worst ones happen in winter. There is some truth to this inclination, as winter roads can be treacherous due to the presence of ice, slush and snow. Drivers who fail to maintain their vehicles on weather-affected surfaces can serious harm to themselves and others when their vehicles are involved in crashes.

Wrong way driver injures four in Massachusetts

Spotting dangerous drivers on the road can be a scary experience for a Worcester resident. They may see an aggressive driver approaching in their rearview mirror, or they may watch a driver swerve in and out of traffic as they attempt to speed down the road. However, one of the most unnerving things that a driver may experience while operating their vehicle is witnessing another vehicle coming toward them as it travels the wrong way.

Wrong-way accident leaves multiple victims injured

Driving on an interstate or high-speed highway can be stressful. When traffic is heavy or conditions are unfavorable, a Massachusetts driver may decide to take things slow to ensure they are able to make good decisions on these roads when others may be driving irresponsibly. While drivers are often able to avoid collisions on highways by driving defensively and staying alert, reckless individuals can still cause injuries and harm by their devastating acts.

Recognize the signs of a traumatic brain injury

Massachusetts residents may be hearing a lot about brain injuries in the context of professional sports and particularly related to the problems some retired football players have experienced. After years of taking violent hits and blocks to their heads, some former players have been diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, often referred to as CTE. This problem develops when a brain is subjected to repeated trauma and harm.

Seeking compensation as the victim of a drunk driving accident

Drunk drivers are a danger to everyone who must operate and ride in vehicles on Massachusetts roads. When they choose to put alcohol into their systems, the bodies of drunk drivers experience changes that the individuals cannot always control. Drunk drivers can experience a loss of inhibitions, a loss of motor function, a loss of reaction time, and many other physical problems.

What can drivers do to avoid texting and driving?

It is completely normal for Worcester residents to see men and women, teens and even young children, walking down the streets with cellphones in their hands. Whether they are sending messages to friends or colleagues, searching for addresses or information, or updating their social media feeds, there is one thing for certain: they are not paying much attention to what is happening in front of them.

Holiday accidents can lead to serious pain and suffering

The Fourth of July holiday is often an event that Massachusetts residents celebrate with exuberance. Many individuals travel to see family and friends while they watch fireworks, enjoy cookouts and embrace the festivities of summer. However, the Fourth of July holiday is also a time when some families are plagued by accidents and tragedies, often brought on by the negligent conduct of others.

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.

State trooper hit by vehicle while assisting disabled motorist

Each day, Massachusetts State Troopers work to keep communities safe and to render aid to those who are in need. They put their lives on the line to make sure that others are out of harm's way and work long hours to offer assistance when called upon.
