Car accidents can occur at any time and in any place in Massachusetts. On Sept. 6, for example, six individuals were injured in an accident that involved two vehicles. The car crash occurred at approximately 2 p.m. in Suffolk County, Massachusetts. Of the six victims, who were transported to nearby hospitals following the accident, two were teenagers in critical condition.
The accident allegedly happened after an 18-year-old driver in an SUV hopped a median. It then overturned and hit a pickup truck. The SUV driver and the pickup truck driver were in critical yet stable condition.
A 15-year-old who was riding in the SUV suffered injuries that were minor. However, two 14-year-olds who were also in the SUV were sent to pediatric intensive care. Another passenger, who was in the pickup truck, suffered non-serious injuries.
A spokesperson for the District Attorney's office said that an investigation into the cause of this Massachusetts accident is ongoing. Such investigations take approximately two weeks to complete, he said. As of Sept. 13, none of the six victims in this accident had died, even though some were in critical condition and intensive care.
Anyone who is seriously injured in an accident caused by another person in Massachusetts may have the ability to pursue a personal injury claim for damages against whoever is faulted in the incident. Such claims can help victims gain a sense of justice while receiving monetary compensation for their injuries. Compensation can be very helpful to pay for any outstanding medical bills and other costs relating to the event. In the case that someone is killed, the compensation can help family members pay for end of life expenses and cover lost family income after the death of a provider in the family.
