Car accidents, depending on the seriousness, can injure everyone that is involved. This sometimes includes the person who caused the accident, along with the other individuals. However, this does not mean that the driver who caused the wreck should not have to accept responsibility for what he or she has done. One recent car accident in Massachusetts left the driver who caused the collision with the worst injuries.
The accident took place on Dec. 30 when a 27-year-old female driver struck another vehicle driven by a 35-year-old woman at around 4:45 p.m. The driver then crossed over the center line and collided head-on with a car driven by a woman who was also 27 years old. A total of seven people were injured in the crash.
The driver who caused the accident was flown to a hospital for treatment, one person was driven to another hospital for treatment and five others were treated on site. The southbound lane of the road was closed for approximately two hours after the accident occurred. Police were still investigating as of Jan. 1, but it was not known if any charges would be filed against the woman.
Even if criminal charges are not filed against the Massachusetts woman, the other victims of the car accident may have the right to seek monetary reimbursement. Such reimbursement could be used by these people to pay for any bills that they receive because of their medical treatment. This can often provide a much less stressful environment and allow the victims to recuperate faster.
