Hit From Behind in Massachusetts

Being hit from behind in Massachusetts by another vehicle is probably the most common type of motor vehicle accident. The majority of these accidents are minor and occur during traffic jams or when a motorist gets too close to the car in front and taps it but numerous collisions do result in serious injuries or death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, rear-end accidents account for 28% of all car collisions and 6% of fatal accidents.

TL Hit by a Driver Impaired by THC Use

Driving while under the influence of drugs is included as a DUI under Massachusetts law and carries the same penalties, civil and criminal. The tragedy that can result when drivers operate their vehicles when drunk or high was highlighted recently in a concluded trial in Worcester. The defendant was allegedly under the influence of marijuana when his Nissan Maxima collided at around 80 mph with the rear of a police cruiser, killing the officer. A nurse testified that the defendant told her that he had a medical prescription for the drug and had fallen asleep before the collision. His doctor said he had had a compulsive episode or seizure just before the collision that was the real reason for the accident. It is not known if the defendant had taken a blood test for the presence of THC in his system or if he had admitted to using marijuana before driving.

Falls and Fractures in a Nursing Home

Our population has a high number of seniors or those aged 65 and older. Baby boomers began turning 65 in 2011 and the numbers increase each year. Many are now living in nursing home facilities with an estimated 1.4 million residents or about 5% of those 65 and over. That number is expected to grow to 3 million by 2030. Unfortunately, most nursing homes do not have stellar reputations for preventing falls and fractures or for preventing abuse.

Thanksgiving Car Accidents

Holiday travel generally means more vehicles on our roadways. When you combine poor weather with the usual culprits of intoxicated and distracted drivers that plague our roads at any time of the year, you usually find a higher rate of accidents and fatalities. The Bureau of Transportation statistics indicate that long distance travel for the Thanksgiving holiday increases by 54% with 90% of that by auto. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that there are 50,000 non-fatal but disabling car accidents nationwide over the Thanksgiving holiday. Over the Christmas holidays, the rate is around 37,000.
