Three Car Accident in Easton Injures Three Men, One Seriously
June 11, 2012
Several weeks ago, three men were injured in a three vehicle crash on Route 138 in Easton. Following the crash, one of the injured men lost consciousness and a MedFlight helicopter was dispatched to the scene. After the helicopter was delayed, he was instead taken by ambulance to Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton. A helicopter then took the man to a hospital in Boston. The accident occurred around 3:45 pm and backed up the early evening rush hour traffic for about an hour.
According to Kevin Partridge, Easton's Fire Chief, it appeared that one car crossed the center line on the two lane road and struck another vehicle nearly head-on. A third car was apparently unable to stop and subsequently caught up in the crash. Two of the drivers involved in the collision were able to walk away from their vehicles, but were taken to Good Samaritan Medical Center for examination. There were no passengers in any of the three vehicles. The exact cause of the accident was still under investigation at the time of writing.
In Massachusetts, we spend a lot of time in our cars. With so many drivers on the road, it's no wonder most personal injury claims filed annually stem from automobile accidents. Although a car crash can occur due to any number of factors, common causes include hazardous or otherwise dangerous road conditions, motor vehicle defects, poor driver health, and inattentive drivers. The injuries that can result from an automobile accident may be very minor, but they can also be life-threatening.
Being involved in a car accident can be traumatizing both mentally and physically. People hurt in a Massachusetts motor vehicle collision may be entitled to receive damages for disability, suffering and pain, loss of income, loss of enjoyment of life, and any medical costs associated with treatment for their injuries. If you were injured in a car accident, you may also be entitled to receive Personal Injury Protection benefits from your insurance company. An experienced vehicle accident lawyer can assist you with filing your personal injury claim.
