Auto accidents can be common in Massachusetts

Readers may not be surprised that there are many collisions on the roadways of Massachusetts each day. What they may not know is that sometimes those auto accidents involve cars that are travelling in the wrong direction on a roadway. That is what happened recently in North Adams that ended with injury to several victims.

According to a report, the driver of a vehicle was travelling in the opposite direction of traffic when he struck a car carrying five passengers. The crash also included additional vehicles, though the most of the damage happened to the car holding the five victims. Those in the car included at least two small children and a grandmother visiting from out of state.

Police report that one of the victims left the scene with first responders and was declared in critical condition at the local hospital. The other adults also suffered injuries. However, the kids were only being treated for bruises that resulted from the impact of their seat restraints. It appears that the children were saved because of the use of safety restraints.

When auto accidents like this one happen in Massachusetts or elsewhere, it can be traumatic for the victims. As in this case, those who are impacted but this type of event often find that they are able to collect some monetary help as they work to recover physically and emotionally. To make the determination of the availability of such help, a thorough review of the applicable laws can be necessary. This is best done with the help of a legal professional.
