Big rig roll-over kills driver, seriously injures another

Anyone who travels Massachusetts' modern highway system with any frequency sees a large number of semi-trailer trucks hauling many different kinds of loads, from building materials to machinery to liquids. These vehicles travel at high speeds and often pose a hazard to other drivers. A recent truck accident on Highway 24 near Fall River appears to have been caused by the rollover of a semi-trailer tanker truck.

Two killed in wrong-way crash

One of the goals of the Interstate Highway System is increasing the safety of drivers and passengers. The medians on Interstate Highways are intended, among other things, to reduce the incidence of head-on collisions. Unfortunately, the metal railings and grass strips that separate opposite lanes sometimes fail to accomplish their duties. A recent head-on car accident near Lawrence, Massachusetts, demonstrates the tragic results of such failures.

Protections for truck accident victims

Truck accidents can result in catastrophic injuries and death so it is important for victims and their families to be familiar with the legal rights and remedies available to them. Legal options can help victims address the damages and difficulties they face following a truck accident such as the physical, financial and emotional damages they have suffered.

Crash results in mass-casualty accident, multiple injured

Though driving gives one a sense of power and control over their vehicle, people often relinquish that control in order to simply enjoy the journey or travel together in a large group. Those who go down this route often hire buses to transport them from one location to another and seldom give another thought to the driver of the vehicle -- it is assumed that the company responsible for the driver would have vetted him or her and ensured that they would follow traffic rules. When a driver fails to do so, he or she might end up causing a bus or car accident with many injuries, depending on the number of people in the vehicle in question.
