The Insurance Implications of Distracted Driving

Because of Massachusetts insurance laws, it is important to identify whether a distraction such as a cell phone, texting or computer led to the accident. Our state is a modified comparative negligence state, meaning if a person is 50 percent or less at fault, his or her compensation will be reduced by the percentage of fault. If a distracted driver caused the accident in which you were injured, it will be very difficult for his or her insurance company to assign a percentage of fault to you.
