In Massachusetts, sending text messages while driving a motor vehicle is against the law. In fact, drivers under 18 are banned from cellphone use completely while operating a motor vehicle.
Accidents caused by drivers who are texting while driving fall under the classification of "distracted driver" accidents. Similar actions that frequently result in accidents include eating while driving, grooming while driving and manipulating a radio or iPod while driving.
Many of these car accidents result in tragic injuries that change the lives of the victims and their families. At Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, LLP, our personal injury lawyers seek full compensation for individuals who are injured in accidents that are caused through no fault of their own.
You can file a personal injury lawsuit even if you were a passenger in the car that caused the accident. The driver's insurance provider — or even your own in the case of a driver who is underinsured — is responsible for your medical bills and lost wages.
