Many drivers in Massachusetts experience a car accident at some point. Even the most careful driver can be unfortunate enough to become embroiled in someone else’s mistake. If they are lucky, they may escape unscathed, with only minor damage to their vehicle. Sadly, this is rarely the case and many car accidents result in serious injuries or worse for the drivers, passengers and even pedestrians involved.
Such was the case early one Saturday morning in Brockton when police attended the scene of a single-vehicle collision. According to officers, the vehicle had collided with a telephone pole, with devastating consequences. Two men were airlifted from the scene and transported to hospitals for treatment. They were reported to be in critical condition.
Another victim of the accident was even less fortunate. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the incident. The precise cause of the crash has not been reported and the tragic event remains under investigation. Sadly, this may offer little comfort to any of the victims’ families turned upside down by this sudden and devastating event.
Unfortunately it is something that is all too common. Every year families in Massachusetts are forced to come to terms with the loss of loved ones as the result of accidents that might have been prevented. It is all too easy for something to go wrong on the road and it does not have to be your fault for you to pay the price.
If you or a loved one have been hurt in an accident that was someone else’s fault, you might benefit from an attorney’s guidance. With the right advice and support, you can challenge those responsible and may be able to seek compensation for your injuries.
