Distracted Driving Accidents
There are strict rules concerning distracted driving in Massachusetts. Motorists are not allowed to read, compose or send a text message while they are operating a motor vehicle. Teen drivers are prohibited from using a cellphone while driving. Drivers who fail to comply with these laws face stiff penalties if they are stopped by law enforcement.
These laws are designed to decrease the number of serious car accidents caused by distracted drivers. If you have been injured in a crash caused by a distracted driver, you need to know the steps you must take in order to preserve your claims for compensation.

Experienced Attorneys Investigating Your Claims
Having worked previously defending companies and individuals, we understand the way these cases are handled. Our attorneys will advise you throughout the process, so that you are able to make informed decisions about how you wish to proceed. We help with a number of different types of distracted driving accident cases, including:
- Accidents caused by motorists texting while driving or while using electronic
- Collisions involving drivers who were talking on a cellphone
- Crashes due to motorists applying makeup or eating while driving
In many accidents, law enforcement officers may not include information about distracted driving in their accident reports. We will attempt to examine cellphone records to determine if the other drivers were using their phones at the time of your crash. We will also interview witnesses to the crash, to see if they observed any distraction on the part of the motorists involved. This evidence will be extremely important if your case ends up going to trial.
