Helping you hold a negligent trucker liable for a crash

It is difficult to miss large commercial trucks traveling on roadways in Massachusetts and other states. Their massive size, and sounds they exert, cause their presence on the roads to be very obvious; however, motorists are very comfortable traveling with these towering vehicles. So comfortable, in fact, that they will travel in the vicinity of several tractor-trailer trucks or semi-trucks without hesitation. Although it is commonplace to share the road with commercial trucks, it is unfortunately not always a safe commute traveling next to one.

How does the government prevent trucking regulation violations?

Large trucks in Massachusetts and other states across the nation are heavily depended on by individuals, businesses and major companies to make a variety of shipments. And while intrastate and interstate commerce relies on semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks to make these shipments on a timely schedule, these massive vehicles do pose a wide range of risks to other motorists on the roadway.

The risks that drunk drivers impose to other motorists

For some motorists in Massachusetts and other states across the nation, there probably came a time when they got behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. While this action is usually alright when a driver is under the legal limit, being intoxicated while operated a motor vehicle can be a very dangerous act. It not only places the life of the driver at risk but also those inside their vehicle as well as those sharing the road with the driver.

Who is to blame in the case of wrongful death?

Worchester was rocked on July 14 when 81-year-old Patricia LeMay was killed in what police called a "tragic accident." LeMay was out taking her morning walk on a side street in her neighborhood when an asphalt truck working on a driveway-paving job knocked her down, pinned her underneath and dragged her for 30 feet. LeMay was announced dead at the scene.

Reckless driver collides with Massachusetts's police cruiser

Drivers in Massachusetts and elsewhere are aware of the steps one can take to ensure the person's safety while the driver is behind the wheel of the vehicle. Such steps as wearing a seatbelt, using mirrors, traveling at or below the posted speed limit, signaling turns and modifying driving behaviors for inclement weather could increase the safety of a motorist; however, this does not always protect a driver from a negligent, reckless or intoxicated driver on the roadways. Such an encounter could result in a serious or even fatal automobile collision.

What are the common signs of nursing home neglect?

Today, it is not uncommon for aging loved ones to temporarily or permanently enter a nursing home facility. Whether they require short-term care following a surgery or injury or reside at a nursing home permanently so they can receive constant care and attention, residents at a nursing home, unfortunately, may not be receiving the care that the individual signed up for.
