Recently, the Massachusetts Court of Appeal issued an opinion that involved a high-speed accident. The defendant was driving her vehicle when she had a seizure. It was later discovered that the defendant had a brain tumor. The vehicle continued on the roadway even as the passenger tried to wake the defendant. Eventually, the defendant’s vehicle collided with the plaintiff’s vehicle. Emergency responders concluded that the defendant was showing signs of having suffered a seizure. The passengers in the plaintiff’s vehicle sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash.
Before the accident, the plaintiff had not seen a doctor for nearly 30 years. She experienced a few headaches during her lifetime and reported having a headache on the day before the accident. Medical experts for both parties concluded that the defendant experienced a medical emergency behind the wheel due to the brain tumor, which was diagnosed at the hospital following the crash.
