There are many different ways a motor vehicle crash might happen. Whether drivers are intoxicated, texting while driving or otherwise distracted, dangerous car accidents are much more likely to occur when drivers act in a negligent manner. Serious injuries were suffered in a recent collision on a Massachusetts interstate.
Few details of the crash have been released at this time. Police stated that the accident took place on I-91 and two cars were involved. The events leading up to the incident are unclear. Officials have yet to determine whether the collision occurred in the northbound or southbound lanes, as both cars were resting in the median when authorities arrived.
Lanes remained closed on both sides of the interstate for several hours as the Massachusetts Department of Transportation and the State Police worked the scene. It is unknown how many victims were present in the vehicles at the time of the crash. It was reported that there were serious injuries, however.
When victims are hurt in car accidents, they are often entitled to file personal injury claims in civil court against any party or parties believed to be responsible. These types of claims can provide plaintiffs monetary damages that can be used to pay for medical bills and any other related expenses when the negligence of defendants are formally documented. Anyone who has been injured in a motor vehicle collision could consult an experienced Massachusetts personal injury attorney to receive more information about this type of claim and to obtain assistance in filing a claim for financial losses.
