It is always important for Massachusetts drivers to pay attention to the traffic and road conditions around them. A case could be made that it is even more important when the vehicle in front of a driver is a motorcycle. Because those riders are more exposed in a motor vehicle accident than those in enclosed passenger vehicles, their injuries are often more serious and even fatal.
No parent in Massachusetts -- or anywhere else -- should have to watch the life drain out of his or her child. Sadly, that is what one out-of-state mother was forced to do in August 2010. A precautionary trip to the hospital after a household accident led to what the mother says were emergency room errors that killed her son.
