Most people spend most of their road time in an automobile. And while cars are much safer than they were in the past, new traffic hazards have sprung up to accompany those that have been around since the Model T. One of these new hazards is distracted driving. Americans are addicted to their smart phones, and though there are strict laws against talking and texting behind the wheel, distracted driving is still at epidemic levels.
Tractor trailers (semi trucks or big rigs) are an abundant and menacing presence on Massachusetts’ roadways. A fully loaded tractor trailer can legally weigh up to 80,000 pounds, compared to the 4,000 pounds of the average car. In a collision between the two, the occupants of the car are going to suffer more severe injuries.
When a motorcyclist is involved in a traffic accident, the injuries suffered can be life altering, even deadly. This is because motorcycles don’t have the restraints and protection that automobiles and other vehicles offer their occupants. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you are likely to accumulate medical bills that far exceed your insurance coverage. In addition, you’ll probably miss a great deal of work while you recuperate. A skilled attorney can win you a settlement that covers your medical costs and lost wages.
Bus, Taxi, & Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Accidents
Accidents involving buses, taxis, or the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) are not necessarily handled in the same way as other traffic accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in one of these types of accidents, it is important that you choose a traffic accident attorney who is familiar with the unique nuances involved in pursuing compensation. Because the MBTA is a government agency, it has certain protections in personal injury claims involving bus, subway, and train accidents. The attorneys at DiBella Law Offices, P.C., understand the law as it applies in these cases, so you can be confident in our ability to pursue fair compensation for you. For over a decade, we have represented clients injured in all types of vehicle accidents, including taxi cabs, tour buses, airport shuttle buses and long-distance buses, such as Greyhound buses.
If you’ve been injured in a traffic accident of any kind, as a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, you may be eligible for compensation for any or all of the following damages:
- Property damage or loss
- Current and future medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent injury or disability
- Loss of a limb
