While traffic in Falmouth has historically been the busiest during the summer months when tourists flock to the Cape, it’s now almost double what it used to be 30 years ago. Gone are the days when it’s easy to fly over the Bourne or Sagamore Bridges and into Falmouth. Travel is busy on main streets and backroads right into the evening hours. It’s not uncommon to see traffic backed up a half mile on MacArthur Blvd. approaching the rotary towards the Bourne Bridge to exit Cape Cod. With more people living and working full time on the Cape & Island’s, it’s no doubt that auto accidents have consistently been on the rise necessitating the need for an expert Falmouth car accident attorney.
As a car accident lawyer for over three decades, the Law Offices of Steven Snow have seen it all. They recommend and stress the importance of having any injuries resulting from an accident assessed immediately to establish a baseline. Many times repercussions don’t show up for a long time after an accident happens. Falmouth Hospital is only minutes from downtown Falmouth. In addition, you should always report the accident to the authorities and your insurance company immediately to ensure the details of the accident are documented appropriately.
If you are injured as a result of an accident, medical treatment will help determine the extent of your injuries. Several other factors will also determine your ability to recover, return to work and live your life.

The main thoroughfare of Route 28 has seen a growing number of accidents each year, and it’s a hazard for both tourists and locals trying to get around all areas in and near Falmouth. A recent accident occurred on Route 28, leading to serious injuries for the driver and a Mashpee man was involved in a fatal car crash on Blacksmith Shop Road. Another crash where poor road conditions may have been a factor led to a 33-year-old driver being killed after totaling his truck.
Whether trying to navigate a difficult rotary, or bypass bikers entering and exiting the Falmouth bike path, it’s important for drivers and pedestrians to always know and follow the rules of the road in Massachusetts. Auto drivers must always give pedestrians (including bicyclists) the right of way, giving them at least five feet of clearance when passing.
It’s critical for all motor vehicles to pay close attention and avoid any type of distracted driving, such as texting and driving or driving under the influence of alcohol, cannabis or worse. There’s plenty to do throughout Falmouth, such as a relaxing ride on the Falmouth bike path that ends all the way to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) keeping people out and about and in the area longer each season. Restaurants such as Anejo Mexican Bistro and the historic Quarterdeck in Falmouth center are open throughout the year and are popular among locals and tourists alike.
“Enjoy all that Falmouth and the surrounding Cape region has to offer, but please do so safely”, asks Steven T. Snow, car accident lawyer for over three decades.
