Teenager dies in fatal car crash

Losing a loved one in a sudden car crash is devastating for family members. This is especially true if the car accident victim was a young vibrant child who was expected to live a long healthy life. Family members are frustrated by the sudden turn of events and often want answers and justice. Why did the negligent or reckless driver behave in such a manner that they caused a fatal accident?

What laws are in place against texting and driving?

Social awareness campaigns have been widely successful in demonstrating the effects of engaging in risky behavior while driving. For example, drinking and driving campaigns, especially near the time prom is going on, have created awareness about the increase in alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents. However, despite the many signs pointing to the dangers of texting and driving, it is alarming that not only are people still engaging in this behavior, but that it also is not out rightly banned in states across the nation, including Massachusetts.

How can I prove pain and suffering after a car crash?

When Massachusetts's residents leave their homes in their vehicles each morning, the last thing they think may happen to them is getting involved in an accident. Many believe if they are careful drivers, adhering to traffic rules, there is little to no chance of being involved in a crash. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. It is not possible to control someone else's behavior on the road, and often, someone else's negligence causes a crash that suddenly leaves a healthy person seriously injured.

Why are there more crashes in the summer?

School has been out for some time, and Massachusetts' drivers may have noticed that there are more cars on the road, especially those vehicles driven by teenagers. Now that they no longer spend their days in school and afternoons studying, teenagers are out and about enjoying their summer vacation. This means that not only are there more cars on the road, it also means there are relatively inexperienced drivers behind the wheel going on unfamiliar routes. This can cause car accidents-in fact accident numbers spike during the timeframe from Memorial Day to Labor Day, known as the 100 deadliest days of summer for teens.

Millennials top the list of most negligent drivers

We've all heard stereotypes about which group of individuals in Massachusetts make poor drivers. In many instances, these stereotypes are overbroad and can be downright offensive. Yet, one recent study has shown that one segment of the population, "millennials," are more dangerous drivers than other groups of Americans.
