Families of Five Victims Killed in Lynnway Auto Auction Crash Seek Justice
Attorney Marc L. Breakstone is interviewed by WHDH TV after criminal indictments come back against the Lynnway Auto Auction and its president. Both the corporation and the president are being charged with five counts of manslaughter in the fatal crash that claimed five lives in 2017, injuring seven others. The Middlesex County District Attorney's office said investigators determined the corporation - which is based in North Billerica - and the president were aware of safety shortfalls and failed to ensure all drivers were properly licensed and trained.
Breakstone, who is representing the family of one of the victims, said “This goes beyond normal everyday negligence. This is gross negligence that created a dangerous environment for employees and others at the auction.”

Attorney David W. White was interviewed for a story on pothole damage to motor vehicles. State law provides drivers 30 days to file a claim, but there is little chance of actual recovery, he said.
"Unfortunately for consumers, it's a miserable law. Across the board, the municipality or the state is going to raise the claim of what's known as contributory negligence. If you are one percent at fault, you get zero percent recovery."
