Massachusetts fatal car accident could put man in prison

The family of someone who is involved in a fatal car accident can often be emotionally injured after their loved one is gone. Fortunately, the person who caused the accident is sometimes remorseful for their actions, and sometimes even takes their punishment gracefully. This can often allow the family to cope easier, knowing that the person who took the life of their family member feels shame for what they did. In Massachusetts, a man recently pleaded guilty for causing a fatal car accident.

The accident occurred in April when the man collided with a car head-on while traveling 80 mph. The other vehicle was being driven by a woman who was with her 14-year-old stepson. As a result of the incident, the woman was killed and her stepson was seriously injured.

The man had been charged with one count of negligent homicide, driving while intoxicated and one count of second-degree assault. Police stated that he was intoxicated at the time of the accident. These charges combined have a maximum prison sentence of 22 years. The man stated that he was very sorry for all the pain he had caused the family.

Even though the criminal case is over, the family of the Massachusetts woman may have the right to seek financial reimbursement due to her loss of life in the fatal car accident. Compensation could reimburse the family for any final expenses of the deceased woman. Though this does not bring back their loved one, it could assist the family in the recovery process.
