Recently, one individual was hospitalized after being involved in a crash, according to a local news report. The vehicle in which the victim was riding ignited after impact and was severely charred, according to officials who reported to the scene of the crash. Debris from the vehicle was scattered all over the roadway and a telephone pole was knocked over. The cause of the crash is currently under investigation.
When it comes to single-car accidents, there are many different factors that could cause a driver to end up in a collision. In some cases, driver inattention or distraction could cause the driver to lose focus and to fail to see upcoming aspects of the roadway like sudden traffic or a sharp turn. But in other situations, a factor outside of the driver’s control could be to blame. This may involve the local municipality’s or transportation authority’s failure to post proper signage about speed limits or sharp turns. A failure to post signs requiring flow of traffic to stop or yield can also lead to single-car crashes. In this scenario, you may be able to bring a claim against the governing authority to recover damages. This could involve bringing a claim pursuant to the Massachusetts Tort Claims Act.
