Man rushed to Massachusetts hospital after hit by a car

As schools are now back in session and summer activities have ended, most people in Massachusetts are turning their attention to fall activities. For many, this means attending community fall festivals. Unfortunately, the alleged events at one fall festival may have some people questioning their safety. An incident that involved a pedestrian being hit by a car has resulted in criminal charges.

The accident is said to have happened in the parking lot of a fall festival. Reports indicated that a car driven by a 46-year-old man struck several cars and a male pedestrian. A police officer working a private detail reportedly witnessed the collision.

The identity of the victim has not been released. However, he is said to have suffered serious injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital before being transferred to a different medical facility. The driver now faces multiple charges, including driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol and driving without a driver's license.

As other victims who have been hit by a car can likely attest, the road to recovery can be long and painful, and many people are never able to fully recover. Medical bills can quickly pile up, especially if a person is unable to work or requires around-the-clock care. For many, filing a personal injury lawsuit in a Massachusetts civil court has proved beneficial. Often, those who are able to successfully prove that their injuries were caused by another's negligence were awarded damages to help with many of the expenses stemming from an accident.
