Leave Plenty of Room Between Cars
Massachusetts State Police cautioned drivers to travel slowly and carefully. They also encouraged them to “leave plenty of room between cars.” Although roads were being plowed to help keep the lanes clear, conditions were still hazardous and the commute slow-going. Inclement weather often contributes to collisions on highways and freeways, but regardless of road conditions, drivers still have a responsibility to drive carefully and responsibly.
Consulting a Personal Injury Lawyer
When Massachusetts residents have been injured in car crashes, they may be entitled to damages. A personal injury attorney could evaluate the circumstances surrounding the collision and determine who is at fault. Even drivers who cause accidents may be entitled to compensation to help cover medical expenses and lost wages. Personal injury attorneys may determine the best courses of action to get clients fair settlements. People who have been injured in car accidents may find it helpful to consult personal injury attorneys who may explain their rights and options.
