There are a multitude of scenarios in which a collision may occur and each incident runs the unfortunate risk of ending in catastrophe. Many accidents occur when drivers lose control and enter the wrong lane of traffic, subsequently leaving other drivers nearby with little time to respond. A recent car accident involving similar circumstances in Massachusetts has injured several individuals and claimed the life of a 21-year-old woman.
Law enforcement agents advised that the accident occurred on Thanksgiving Day. According to reports, a driver suddenly lost control of his car and veered into an oncoming lane before striking another vehicle. The driver of the car was rushed to a hospital for treatment of severe injuries soon thereafter, while his passenger was pronounced dead at the scene.
Both the driver and a passenger in the other vehicle also suffered severe injuries in the accident and were rushed to a nearby medical facility. Although police have advised that three other individuals were injured in the crash, it remains unclear if any other vehicles might have been involved. An investigation is underway and police have advised that speed may have been a contributing factor in the accident.
Suffering serious harm or losing someone close in a car accident can be devastating. Following a major collision, the victims or the surviving loved ones of the deceased may wish to exercise their rights to pursue accountability in civil court, and they could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney for guidance. An attorney can examine the incident thoroughly and assist a client in Massachusetts in pursuing the full amount of restitution entitled through a claim against the party or parties deemed culpable.
