Massachusetts car accident could result in personal injury claims

An Accident Reconstruction Team in Massachusetts is currently investigating a two-car accident in which several people were injured. A van carrying two adults and four children was struck head on by a pickup truck. It is unknown what caused the driver of the truck to crash into the van causing this serious car accident. As more information is gathered it could be determined the driver of the truck was operating his vehicle in a negligent manner. If so, the door could be open for criminal charges and civil litigation.

According to authorities, the impact of the collision resulted in the driver of the van suffering life-threatening injuries, as did his 10-year-old daughter. The second adult and one of the three other children passengers were also injured in the accident. The injured parties were treated at local hospitals, including the two seriously injured persons who were transported via helicopter.

Two other children in the van were not injured, though their lives have likely been greatly affected by this traumatic experience. The exact cause of the accident has not been released as authorities work to determine what factors, such as drugs or alcohol may have been involved in the accident. Authorities have stated that they are waiting for the investigation to conclude before determining what charges may be filed.

If the driver of the pickup truck is found to be negligent, he could face civil litigation in a Massachusetts court. If so, he could be ordered to pay monetary damages to those injured in the car accident. Successful civil litigation, such as personal injury claims, can result in significant monetary compensation. Such compensation may be used to cover the cost of medical expenses, financial losses due to inability to work, as well as pain and suffering sustained by the victims.
