State Highway Accidents
From Personal Injury Law Offices in Brockton, Serving the Boston Area and all of Southeast MA
The most severe accidents in Massachusetts occur on the State’s highways. Because highway accidents usually involved high rates of speed, drivers and other vehicle occupants are likely to suffer severe and sometimes fatal injuries, especially if the victim was driving a smaller two or four door sedan. As the population in Massachusetts grows so too does the traffic congestion on the state’s highways. The volume of traffic on the highways in eastern Massachusetts has grown tremendously over the last few decades more than tripling from 19.6 million daily vehicle-miles of travel in 1970 to approximately 65.0 million daily vehicle-miles of travel in 2010. The increased congestion has resulted in increased accidents.
Highway crashes occur every day in Massachusetts, with many resulting in catastrophic or fatal injuries. At The Law Offices of Gerald J. Noonan we have successfully represented victims of rollover accidents, head-on collisions and multi-car pileups. Our clients have been involved in accidents on the major highways in Southeastern Massachusetts:
Highways accidents have many causes. However, driver negligence is the major cause of the highway and roadway accidents that occur in Massachusetts. Negligence is simply the failure to exercise the same care that a reasonable person in similar circumstances would. There are also other causes besides driver negligence. The following are some of the causes of highway accidents:
- Distracted Drivers
- Drunk Drivers
- Inexperienced Drivers
- Elderly Drivers
- Defective Roads
- Excessive Speeding
- Flying Debris
- Driver fatigue
- Improper Vehicle Maintenance
