Dangers of drunk driving in Massachusetts

Every year, numerous drunk driving accidents happen in Massachusetts, too often resulting in serious personal injuries or deaths of innocent people. Drunk drivers risk not only their own personal safety, but that of all others on the road around them. Despite these risks and despite tightening laws, people continue to drink and drive.

The most common reported symptoms associated with whiplash

A car accident can happen in a matter of seconds on Massachusetts roadways, and a driver may not have enough time to shield their face and head before the impact. Each day, people who are involved in accidents sustain injuries, regardless of how fast a vehicle was traveling at the time of the collision. If an individual begins to have headaches, difficulty balancing when walking or standing, severe pain in the neck or back areas or dizziness, they may have received a whiplash injury.

Preventing common car accident injuries

Far too many car accidents take place in Massachusetts and around the country each year. Drivers and passengers, however, may take simple preventative measures to reduce the likelihood of suffering serious personal injuries in the event one does occur.
