As I’ve written about previously on both this blog and elsewhere, the Massachusetts Legislature finally woke up last fall and presented Gov. Charlie Baker with a bill with (supposedly) teeth in it to ban hand-held cell phone use in Massachusetts, and the Gov. signed it.  After 90 days from signing, the law went into effect […]

It’s summer and the livin’ is easy. I love this time of year – it’s my favorite, bar none. Summer time brings warm, carefree memories of childhood, and slows everyone’s life down a bit for the here and now. In short, I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t feel that it’s probably the best time of […]

Here it is Thanksgiving Day 2019, and I thought I’d post these thoughts before sitting down for dinner.  Actually, I’ve made it a practice to contemplate on what I’m grateful for almost every day of the year that I can:  It’s a smart habit to form. On a professional level, as a Massachusetts car accident […]

The media has been doing a lot of broadcasting and publishing recently – very justifiably – on the subject of the Massachusetts Legislature’s shameful failure to act promptly in passing a revised distracted driving bill in this state. In the meantime, the lives of millions of drivers on the roads of Massachusetts remain at heightened […]

How does this picture look to you?  Pretty scary, huh?  Well, you’d be surprised how often I see these types of Massachusetts motor vehicle accidents, caused by distracted driving.  That’s code for “Using a smart phone when behind the wheel.”   Despite the gravity of this problem, some would say that this subject is a […]

In yet another example of how dangerous everyday driving can be, a 32-year-old Dedham woman was killed earlier this week as the result of injuries she received after being struck by another car. Making this death even worse, were the circumstances under which the tragedy occurred: A neighbor drove his SUV into a birthday party […]

You don’t have to look far to see the terrible tragedies that occur every day as a result of motor vehicle accidents in Massachusetts. This past Saturday (June 20 2009,) both a 3-year-old child and a man were killed when they were thrown from their sport utility vehicle in an accident on Interstate 95 in […]

I’ve blogged here several times previously about the dangers of texting and driving – actually, of any smart phone use while driving.  But most of my posts have had to do with the everyday drivers out there – known legally as “private passenger vehicle operators.” As annoying as it is to look at the car […]

In my work as a Boston car accident lawyer, I have seen firsthand the devastation that is caused by accidents – everything from distracted driving to drunk driving. Texting, talking on cellphones, eating, applying makeup – these are all threats to everyone’s safety, when done when you are sitting in the driver’s seat. But now, […]
