Cambridge Personal Injury Attorneys
Cambridge is home of two of the world’s most prominent universities, MIT (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology) as well as Harvard Law school. Located near the Boston Harbor, and settled in 1631, Cambridge has grown to a dense population of about 110,000. The city is notable for its neighborhood centers known as “squares”, such as Harvard Square, a major Cambridge shopping area and Kendall Square.
While having such a dense population is great for its commercial industry and business environment, it makes driving to their destination more hazardous. Dangerous driving conditions often contribute to motor vehicle accidents. If you have been hurt in a car accident in Cambridge, you may be eligible for compensation under Massachusetts law.
Swartz & Lynch LLP has been representing car accident victims for more than two decades. Massachusetts law holds drivers accountable for the damage they cause in auto accidents. Our legal team helps bring claims on behalf of those who have been hurt in accidents caused by:
- Drunk driving. When drivers get behind the wheel after drinking or using drugs, they are a danger to themselves and everyone else on the road. In Massachusetts, it is unlawful to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher.
- Distracted driving. Now more than ever, drivers are paying attention to cellphones and other devices instead of keeping their eyes on the road. It is illegal in Massachusetts to drive while using a cellphone (Ch 90 section 13B), and a driver can be held accountable if he causes an accident.
- Drowsy driving. Many people are surprised to find that lack of sleep can affect a driver nearly as much as alcohol can. When a driver nods off behind the wheel, he can cause accidents and injuries.
- Reckless driving. The winding roads of Cambridge are no place for speeding. When drivers ignore traffic laws or traffic signals, they increase the risk of hitting pedestrians, students or other vehicles.
Auto accidents are only one of the ways in which local residents become victims of personal injuries. For more than two decades, Swartz & Lynch LLP has represented drivers, pedestrians and vehicle passengers. Our firm also represents those who have fallen or been hurt at work
After an auto accident, our legal team determines who is at fault and works to help you recover compensation from the responsible parties, including:
- Insurance companies
- Trucking companies
- City and state agencies
- Vehicle manufacturers
In addition to representing those injured in auto accidents, our firm seeks justice for those hurt by malpractice, by negligence or at work.
