Massachusetts car accidents: Collision sends 7 to hospital

The vast majority of people who get into the drivers' seats of cars know the rules of the road and are willing to obey them. Their goals, beyond arriving at their destinations, are to ensure their personal safety, as well as the safety of those around them by avoiding car accidents. Unfortunately, some people may not be as diligent. Even a split second of distraction to change the radio station or glance at a phone can cause a devastating accident. Police in Massachusetts are still investigating an accident that sent seven people to the hospital.

Property conditions that could cause a slip and fall accident

Many people never think about the potential of being injured. This potential exists even when a person does everything in his or her power to stay safe. However, many times it is impossible to avoid hazardous property conditions. Anyone who has been injured in a slip and fall accident in Massachusetts due to a property owner's negligence has the choice of seeking a legal remedy in a civil court.

Failure to diagnose ectopic pregnancy may have led to coma

Because there are so many babies safely born every day in Massachusetts, it may be easy to overlook the potential dangers that a pregnant woman may face.

One out-of-state family is now arguing that doctor's failure to diagnose a woman's ectopic pregnancy left her in a coma.

Workers' compensation in Massachusetts

In every form of employment, employees face some degree of risk. While it is in an employer's best interest to protect the safety of its workers, accidents can still occur. Unfortunately, a workplace accident can have serious consequences for a worker and his or her family. Most would agree that an injured worker's employer should be responsible for the financial ramifications of a workplace accident. As a result, Massachusetts law requires employers to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage for each of their employees.

Like most people, a young man in Massachusetts had plans for his life. He had a job -- his employer described him as a reliable employee -- that would help him save for his wedding.

The accident may be viewed as having resulted in a wrongful death.

Man found guilty of homicide after fatal car accident

The average person makes hundreds of decisions each and every day. Most of these are seemingly inconsequential -- what to wear or eat -- while others may have unforeseen consequences on both the individual's life as well as the life of others. Such decisions could have led to the recent conviction of one man in Massachusetts because of a fatal car accident last year that resulted in the death of an elderly woman.

Who is responsible in a slip and fall accident?

There are many clumsy people in this world. However, the risk of an injury in a dangerous slip and fall accident increases if there are negligent property conditions. Many people in Massachusetts who have been injured in such an accident likely have experienced the financial ramifications of their injury. However, those who have been injured as a result of negligent property conditions may have legal remedies available to them.

Workplace accident results in fatality

Most people who have traveled this country's roadways have experience with tractor-trailers. While many in Massachusetts may say that tractor-trailers can at times create unsafe conditions for others, the potential safety risks for those who work with such vehicles are often overlooked. For example, one out-of-state man was recently killed in a workplace accident involving two trailers.

Women who are expecting have a million different things to worry about.

Wrongful death suit possible after Massachusetts snowplow death

Recent storms have gripped the northeast, and the area continues to be pounded with snow. To help cope with weather conditions, snowplows are taking to the roadways and parking lots in an attempt to keep them clear. Unfortunately, those who operate these vehicles may assume that there are no pedestrians out in the weather, which is often not the case. For example, one woman in Massachusetts is believed to have been killed by a snowplow. As a result, her family could file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Massachusetts highway accidents: 2 injured in collision

Tractor-trailers serve a vital role in this country's economy by moving goods from place to place in a relatively efficient manner.  Many drivers are well-trained professionals who simply want to earn a living and preserve their own safety as well as the safety of those they may encounter on the roadways. Unfortunately, mistakes made by tractor-trailer drivers can result in serious highway accidents. For example, two people in Massachusetts suffered serious injuries in a collision with such a vehicle.
