A dangerous situation just south of Boston could have been much worse when a negligent truck driver ran a red light and hit a Brockton city bus. The truck accident, which sent two people to the hospital, was allegedly caused by an inattentive truck driver who was looking at paperwork while driving and who failed to stop at a red traffic light. The truck driver's negligence caused his tractor trailer to rear-end the city bus and to throw the bus off the road and into the yard of a residential property.
When accidents happen, it can be tough for everyone concerned. Whether it's a light scrape or serious injuries, which it was in this case, the last thing anyone wants to be worrying about is cost. Fortunately, victims of such accidents can attempt to recover expenses through a personal injury claim.
Everyone knows that pedestrian-car collisions can have very serious consequences. Drivers need to remember that they are operating heavy equipment that can cause severe injury or death if improperly handled. If drivers fail to exercise due caution in some way or another, such as by texting while driving, then the driver may be held liable for damages, including injury or wrongful death.
