Massachusetts teen critically hurt in car accident

As a parent, there’s little in the world that causes more turmoil than seeing your child injured, especially when it’s the fault of someone else. We all know that teenagers don’t always make the wisest decisions and, as much as we try to prepare them for the world, accidents happen. They might get in the car with an intoxicated driver or try a maneuver that only experience can tell you is a bad idea. Because of this, teenagers account for an enormous amount of car accidents annually and the results are often tragic.

A Massachusetts teen is recovering from critical injuries in a Boston hospital after a terrible accident in early June in Maine. She was riding in a vehicle when the driver spotted a friend in another car. The driver then attempted a pass of the other car. The vehicle the Massachusetts teen was riding in then went out of control, rolled and came to rest on its roof. The driver and another passenger who was hurt have since been released from the hospital they were brought to, but the Massachusetts teen is still receiving treatment and fighting to recover from her injuries.

The heart breaks for this teenager’s family as they likely cope with their daughter’s terrible injuries and hope in their hearts for a full recovery.

When you or a loved one has been injured thanks to someone else’s negligence, it’s perfectly reasonable to try to seek compensation to financially deal with medical expenses and pain and suffering. However, what options a person has in this regard can vary quite a bit depending on what exactly happened in an accident. A Massachusetts attorney can advise individuals on what the right course of action might be in their circumstances.

Driver crashes into real estate office in South Boston

Most people think a car accident can only happen on the road. Every once in a while, a car accident can involve a building as well. This is the case for a recent car accident that occurred in South Boston. A man smashed his car through the walls of a real estate office after traveling in reverse across the street from a Rite Aid parking lot. The driver went over a guardrail and into the office’s conference room. The driver is reported to have received minor injuries that were tended to at an area hospital.

Only one person is reported to have been inside the building at the time of the accident. This person is reported to not have been injured. Boston police are investigating the cause of the accident. There are many possibilities as to why this car accident occurred though. It could be due to a negligent or distracted driver, or even texting and driving.

It is a lucky occurrence that the accident did not happen during a busy workday, as many employees could have been injured.

It is good to be aware that car accidents do not just happen on the road. It is important to remember that car accidents entail any accident involving a car, and if you are the victim of such an accident, you should first seek medical attention and then retribution. Also keep in mind that not all injuries are obvious immediately. You may find yourself unexpectedly requiring compensation for medical expenses, loss of wages and pain and suffering. Consulting legal counsel and maintaining documentation of any medical expenses may help you financially overcome any grievances caused by a senseless car accident.
