A few days ago I was involved in a serious automobile accident on Route 95 just north of Boston. The other driver admitted that he was texting on his cell phone right before he sideswiped my car. My car flipped, I was taken to the hospital and have a broken arm and ribs and will need physical therapy. Isn’t there a law in Massachusetts banning texting while driving? How will that affect my personal injury case?
Massachusetts’s law states that no one shall “use a mobile telephone, or any handheld device capable of accessing the Internet, to manually compose, send or read an electronic message while operating a motor vehicle.” An admitted violation of this law is evidence of negligence and will be helpful in proving the liability aspect of your personal injury case.
