Car Accidents

Distracted Driving

Stepping In When Inattention Causes Injury

More than 2 million people were injured in auto accidents in 2009 according to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Most motor vehicle accidents are the result of driver negligence, including speeding, aggressive driving and inattentive driving.

The NHTSA reports that 16 percent of all fatal auto crashes and 21 percent of all auto crashes causing injury are the result of distracted driving, including:

  • Talking on a cell phone
  • Texting while driving
  • Eating or drinking
  • Arguing with passengers
  • Grooming or applying makeup
  • Use of GPS and other electronic devices

If you or a loved one has been injured by a careless or inattentive driver, you have a right to be fully compensated for your injuries. For experienced and aggressive representation in Massachusetts, contact the Milton law firm of Colucci Colucci Marcus & Flavin, PC.

Rear-End Collisions

Hit From Behind? We’ll Fight For You Head-On.

Contact us today online or by telephone at (617) 698-6000 to speak with an experienced Boston, MA, rear-end collision lawyer.

Rear-End Collision Injuries Can Be Deceptively Severe

Rear-end accidents can be complex personal injury cases because the damage of the vehicle does not correspond to the severity of the injuries sustained by the occupants of the car. Insurance companies often seize on this factor in an attempt to downplay the severity of the accident victims’ injuries.

As experienced Boston car accident lawyers, we understand the life-changing effects soft tissue injuries such as whiplash can have. It is these types of injuries that are often suffered by people injured in rear-end accident collisions.

We will investigate all aspects of your rear-end car crash. Oftentimes these accidents are the result of careless and inattentive drivers such as distracted drivers, drunk drivers and other drivers who are not paying attention to the road. We will fight to hold the negligent party responsible, and to help you pursue full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.

Texting While Driving

There Is No Excuse For Texting While Driving

Driving a motor vehicle requires constant attention to the road. Texting is an activity that takes the driver’s eyes, hands and mind off the road, creating a dangerous condition that puts the lives of others at risk.

If you or someone close to you was injured in a motor vehicle accident and you think negligence such as texting while driving played a role, the attorneys at Colucci, Colucci, Marcus & Flavin, P.C., are here to protect your rights. We have a proven record of success obtaining results for people throughout the Boston area and across Massachusetts.

Contact us today online or by telephone at (617) 698-6000 to speak with an experienced Boston, MA, texting while driving lawyer.

Distractions Cause Disasters

Texting while driving is becoming a leading cause of car accidents across the nation. A study conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found that truck drivers who were texting while driving were 23 times as likely to cause an accident than a driver who was paying attention to the road.

When drivers take their attention off the road, even for an instant, they can miss cars stopping in front of them, leading to rear-end collisions. They can miss pedestrians, bicyclists and other hazards. While using any electronic device while driving is dangerous, texting is perhaps the most dangerous, because it takes the greatest amount of attention.

If you were injured by a careless, texting driver, our attorneys will work to help you obtain full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.

Anticipating Insurance Company Tactics

When a careless or negligent driver causes a fatality, his or her insurance provider goes into defense mode immediately, dispatching investigators to the accident scene and doing everything it can to limit or deny liability.

Our lawyers have extensive experience handling fatal car accident cases and can help you pursue fair and just compensation for:

What Causes Rollover Accidents?

A number of factors can lead to rollover accidents. When a tire blowout occurs, the vehicle may suddenly shift its weight to one side, causing it to rollover.

SUVs are particularly prone to rollover accidents. Older models have a high center of gravity, making them unstable around tight corners and in the event of avoiding a hazard.

The injuries sustained in rollover accident can be severe and catastrophic. When the vehicle rolls over its top, the roof can cave in, causing head and spinal cord injuries. For this reason, auto crashworthiness is often a factor in rollover accidents.

Our attorneys will work to uncover all of the facts in your case, and to identify all liable parties, whether they be an auto manufacturer, driver or another party.

Compensation For Injured Passengers

Remember, car accident injury claims are almost always paid by the driver’s insurance company, not by the driver him or herself.

Cell Phone Related Car Accident Cell Phone Distraction

Taking A Call Can Cause A Calamity

Talking on a cellphone while driving or texting while driving takes a driver’s attention off the road, ultimately making our highways less safe. Studies show that cellphone use while driving reduces a driver’s impairment to a point that is similar to that of a drunk driver.

If you have been injured in a cellphone-related car accident, you should talk about your legal options with an experienced personal injury attorney. You may be eligible for significant compensation for your injuries.

For experienced representation following a cellphone-related car accident in Massachusetts, call the Milton law firm of Colucci Colucci Marcus & Flavin, PC, at (617) 698-6000. Otherwise, contact our Boston texting while driving accident lawyers online today.

We Give Your Case The Attention It Deserves

When a driver is talking on a cellphone, he or she cannot devote the attention necessary to safely operate a motor vehicle. Similarly, texting while driving requires a driver to take his or her eyes off of the road for seconds at a time. This can cause a driver to miss seeing pedestrians or bicyclists, miss braking in time, or drift into oncoming traffic.

If you have been injured in an accident involving a distracted driver, our firm’s lawyers will take the time necessary to fully investigate your accident and determine the responsible parties. We have handled thousands of car accident cases on behalf of injured clients and their families, and we frequently take on cases that other law firms have rejected, after they have failed to fully investigate the cause of an accident. In these challenging cases, we are often able to obtain highly successful results on behalf of our clients.

Contingency fees: We work on a contingency fee basis in all areas related to personal injury law. This means that you pay nothing if we don’t win compensation for you, and that all attorney time is at no charge, including your initial consultation.

Hit and runs

When You Don’t Know Who Hit You

While any serious auto accident can be devastating to accident victims and their families, hit-and-run accidents tend to be even more difficult to process. The blatant disregard for honesty, respect and responsibility by a hit-and-run driver makes these accidents truly heartbreaking.

If you have been injured in a hit-and-run car or motorcycle accident, or if you were injured while walking, jogging or biking by a hit-and-run driver, you should learn about all of your legal options from an experienced personal injury lawyer. You may be eligible for significant compensation to cover a range expenses related to your accident, from medical bills and hospitalization to lost wages.

For experienced representation following a hit-and-run accident in Massachusetts, contact the Milton law firm of Colucci Colucci Marcus & Flavin, PC, at (617) 698-6000.

Securing Compensation After A Hit-and-Run Accident

After an individual has been injured in a hit-and-run accident, it can be difficult to know what steps to take to secure compensation, considering that the identity of the at-fault driver is unknown. These cases can be much more complex than car accident cases where the identity of the other driver is known. Our Boston hit-and-run accident lawyers can immediately step in and begin investigating your accident to determine your full scope of legal options.

Often in hit-and-run accident cases, the victim may be eligible for compensation through his or her own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. We will determine your specific legal options and identify all potential sources of compensation to maximize your recovery.

Contingency fees: We work on a contingency fee basis in all areas related to personal injury law. This means that you pay nothing if we don’t win compensation for you, and that all attorney time is at no charge, including your initial consultation.
