Woburn Car Accident Lawyer
Woburn is a Massachusetts town located about 9 miles north of Boston. Located in Middlesex County, it had a population of just over 38,000 at the time of the 2010 census and is located just south of the intersection of Interstate 93 and Interstate 95. Woburn is no stranger to legal actions based on personal injuries. The 1970s saw a particularly high incidence of cancer in the city, which eventually was linked to contaminated groundwater caused by improper waste disposal on the part of W.R. Grace and Company and its subsidiary, Beatrice Foods.
Car accidents are a much more common cause of accidental injury and can be as if not more harmful than environmental contamination. With its proximity to Boston and major Massachusetts thoroughfares, anyone on the road in Woburn is at risk of being involved in a motor vehicle accident. According to the National Highway traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 2.3 million people were injured in motor vehicle accidents in 2012 alone, making them one of leading causes of accidental injury. When car accidents are the result of someone’s negligence, victims may be able to recover for their losses by filing a personal injury claim. Among the most common ways negligence results in car accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Improper vehicle maintenance
- Failure to stop at a stop sign
- Driver fatigue
- Failure to observe traffic signals
- Impaired driving
- Defective vehicle design
- Defective vehicle manufacture
- Driver error
There are many other ways that negligence could cause a car accident, and it is important for those involved in accidents to discuss their case with a qualified car accident lawyer to determine whether they have a claim. While most accidents are the result of driver error, there are some that are the result of the negligence of vehicle manufacturers. An experienced attorney will be able to review the facts of your case and hold those responsible for your injuries liable.
