Seven kids injured when charter buses collide

Field trips for school children are intended to be both entertaining and educational. They are not supposed to end with multiple injuries. Some field trips, unfortunately, end in tragedy or near tragedy and send more than a few children to the hospital. A collision of two charter buses near Duxbury avoided profound tragedy but still managed to cause injuries to seven children and one adult.

Family of woman killed by flying manhole cover seeks damages

Manhole covers are one of the most unobtrusive and least visible elements of highway construction, but even these heavy disks can pose a deadly hazard if they are not properly maintained. The father and brother of a Milton art teacher recently commenced a law suit to recover wrongful death damages based on the failure to properly inspect and maintain manhole covers on I-93.

Rear-end collision on I-95 kills two, injures three

Rear-end collisions on an Interstate Highway do not always produce catastrophic results. Ordinarily, both vehicles are traveling in the same direction, their relative speeds are low and the impact does not generate a lot of energy. Some rear-end car accidents can, unfortunately, produce serious injuries or even deaths under certain circumstances. A two-vehicle collision on I-95 near Attleboro recently killed two people and injured three more.

Speeding car strikes apartment building, ignites fire

Most car accidents involve only other vehicles. Occasionally, however, vehicles leave the roadway and strike objects or buildings that are near the right of way. A car accident involving an apartment building fire occurred recently in Fall River, when a vehicle hit the side of a three story apartment building.

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.

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.

Seeking compensation after a car accident in Salem

As mentioned in last week's post, the aftermath of a car accident in Massachusetts can wreak havoc on the lives of surviving accident victims and their loved ones. Fortunately, it is possible to pursue compensation for the emotional and physical costs associated with being involved in a car accident through a personal injury lawsuit.
