Car accidents that involve multiple cars can quickly increase in their level of severity each time a new car becomes involved. With each additional vehicle, the chance of someone else receiving serious injuries or being killed increases drastically. Multi-car accidents that involve pedestrians can become even more serious, as the lack of protection for the pedestrian can often leave him or her with seriously injured. A very recent pedestrian accident in Massachusetts injured two people.
The accident happened around 7 a.m. on Oct. 18., and Boston police arrived soon after. Initial reports claimed that three different motor vehicles had been involved in the crash. A pickup truck was found on the sidewalk where it had apparently ended up during the collision.
Two people were seriously injured in the accident. One was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital while the other was taken to Tufts Medical Center. The condition of both victims is unknown at this time. The accident is still under investigation by Massachusetts police.
Once investigations are complete, and it is determined who was responsible for the accident, the two injured people may have the right to seek monetary reimbursement for the injuries they suffered in this pedestrian accident. This type of financial restitution is often used by those who are injured to pay for medical bills and other expenses related to the accident. It could also be used to compensate for their lack of income if they will need to miss work. This further allows injured victims in Massachusetts to focus on healing and returning to normal life as soon as possible.
