Massachusetts car accidents can cause brain injury

Massachusetts residents may be aware of the devastating injuries that can occur as the result of a car accident. A brain injury is a common injury following some crashes. A recent head-on collision may have resulted in more than one person suffering a brain injury.

The late night accident happened when a driver was driving on the wrong side of a bridge. The unidentified driver hit a vehicle head-on. Five injuries were reported with one of those listed as a serious injury. No information regarding if or how the injured were transported was available at the time of the report. Major backups and delays were noted as personnel worked to clear the scene.

An accident of this magnitude could take time to thoroughly investigate. As the injured wait to see if charges are filed, they retain the right to file a civil suit. In the case a victim is too injured to do so, a family member may be designated to pursue it on their behalf. When serious injuries occur as the result of a negligent driver, it can be a physically, mentally, and financially draining. Long term medical care that can be necessary after a brain injury can be a costly expense.

Any Massachusetts resident that believes they have been the victim in an accident resulting in a brain injury may benefit from knowing their rights under our personal injury laws. With an understanding of a victim's rights, a determination can be made about the best way to move forward with any action that is deemed appropriate. In a situation the victim is unable to decide for themselves, a family member or loved one may be able to assist with important decisions.
