Distracted Driving Accidents In Western Massachusetts And Southern Vermont

Operating a motor vehicle is a large responsibility that must be taken seriously. When a motorist is driving, he or she should be focused on one and only one task: driving. Unfortunately, distracted driving is becoming more and more prevalent with each passing year. From smart phones and GPS to kids in the back seat and people trying to multi-task, many motorists have brought their busy lifestyles onto the road with them.

When a motorist's attention is taken away from driving — even for just a split-second — serious accidents can happen. If you or a loved one has been injured by a distracted driver, turn to the law firm serving the Berkshires that is here to help.

Texting And Driving Is Dangerous And Against The Law

Massachusetts and Vermont laws prohibit people from using a cellphone to text while driving. Texting can include sending or reading texts, instant messages, social media messages and emails. Far too many motorists continue to use their cellphones to compose and read texts and other messages while driving. This can place innocent motorists in harm's way.

If you were injured by someone who was texting while driving, you have the right to an attorney. Our law firm can help you with all elements of your auto accident claim and seek maximum compensation for your injuries. We are aware of the laws that are in place to keep people safe and the lengths that people will go to avoid following those laws. We are here to help you throughout all interactions with the insurance companies and can see you through to a successful resolution.
