Everyday Massachusetts residents are injured in auto accidents. Statistics show that more six million auto accidents occur in the United States annually. Over 2.9 million people are injured and more than 42,000 people are killed. While each accident is different concerning the level of damages, injuries and losses, it is important to have an experienced Massachusetts auto accident lawyer on your side. In our experience, the majority of motor vehicle accidents occur because of someone else’s negligence for failing to stop for a red light or a stop sign, rear-end collisions, texting or using a cell phone, or unsafe lane change. However, some occur because of someone else’s reckless behavior such as operating at excessive speeds or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In addition, some auto accidents are caused by a defective product. The law firm of Gilman Law LLP has extensive experience in handling cases where the automobile manufacturer was responsible for designing, manufacturing or labeling a defective product which caused the serious injury.
One leading cause of accidents that has been on the rise during the past two decades is the use of cell phones. In 2009, 5,474 people were killed and 448,000 were injured in the U.S. because of accidents that involved distracted drivers. Cell phone use was a factor in 995 of the deaths and 24,000 of the injuries. These numbers are alarming. The Safe Driving Law in Massachsetts which became effective on September 10, 2010 states that operators cannot use any mobile telephone or handheld device capable of accessing the Internet to write, send, or read an electronic message including text messages, emails, and instant messages or to access the Internet while operating a vehicle. This law applies even if the vehicle is stopped in traffic.
