Dangerous Crashes in Westerly 

In May 2021, five people were injured in a Westerly auto accident. Two cars crashed on Route 1, causing one of them to flip over in the process. One vehicle was turning left and drove into the high-speed lane where another car was unable to stop in time to avoid hitting them. In April 2021, a 60-year-old man died after a motorcycle crash, and his 50-year-old passenger was in critical condition at the hospital when their bike collided with a pickup truck near the intersection of Shore Road and Langworthy Road. That same month, a 21-year-old woman crashed into a utility pole on Route 1 and was left with head trauma, including a likely concussion. All types of car accident injuries can uproot your life, no matter how large or small. Let a knowledgeable personal injury attorney ensure you are treated fairly and help make the road to recovery a little easier.

The Fall of 2020 brought about another crash in the area involving a 47-year-old woman near the entrance of a local nursing home. A car and pickup truck crashed into each other, causing one to flip over and trap the occupant inside the vehicle. The pick-up truck was travelling in the high-speed lane, while the other driver saw them out of the corner of their eye and swerved into their lane where the crash occurred. Another crash occurred later that Fall when a car crashed into multiple traffic signs, a pole, and another vehicle parked nearby in the midst of a police chase. The four occupants of the car fled the scene, but were later located and charged with shoplifting and resistance to arrest.

Westerly car accident data claims that two people were involved in fatal crashes in 2019 and one person in 2017. When a driver acts carelessly on the road, there can be deadly consequences. If you feel your family member was killed due to a reckless driver, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim to receive compensation for your loss. No amount of money can ever replace a loved one, but a Westerly injury lawyer can assist you in filing a claim for damages to ease the financial burden of your loss.
