Types of Auto Accidents in the Brockton Area

Car accidents are unexpected and have the potential to change your entire life. When they occur, it’s important to ensure you receive the dedicated and reliable representation you deserve. Often, crashes involve more than one vehicle, and your lawyer will need to prove negligence on behalf of each party involved. For example, multiple vehicles were involved in a car crash in Brockton in February 2021 at the corner of Ash and Belmont Street. Three cars played a role in the collision with one occupant ending up trapped beneath the roof of their vehicle during the aftermath. That same month, an aggressive driver travelling on Route 24 injured a one-year-old boy when he sideswiped another car while weaving in and out of traffic.

Unfortunately, numerous motor vehicle collisions in the Brockton area result in fatalities, with city data citing 4 deaths in 2019, 7 deaths in 2018, and 13 deaths in 2017. More recently, in November 2020, a woman was killed during a three-car crash due to a driver running a red light at an intersection on Route 123. August 2020 also saw fatalities as a 66-year-old female and 39-year-old male were killed in a crash while another 30-year-old driver received critical injuries. The accident occurred because of a wrong-way driver travelling down Reynolds Memorial Hospital.

When a reckless driver flees the scene of an accident, such as the hit-and-run driver involved in a Brockton car accident during which he killed a 55-year-old pedestrian near Centre Street, Massachusetts Common Law makes it clear that anyone acting recklessly, and injuring others is liable for the damages. A Brockton car accident attorney may help you file a wrongful death claim for compensation following the death of a beloved family member. No amount of money can replace your loss, but the financial struggles that often follow a fatal car crash can be made a little easier on you. Even if the driver of the vehicle fled the scene, a skilled lawyer can offer alternative ways to help you receive the compensation you deserve.

City History

Brockton gained the nickname “City of Champions” since two famous boxers, Rocky Marciano and Marvin Hagler, were born here. The city also enjoys its own baseball team, the Brockton Rox, and is home to many “firsts” as the first place to possess a three-wire underground electrical system in the entire world. Edgar’s Department Store in Brockton was the first department store in the United States to bring in Santa Claus and the city holds world records for the most amount of people to wear Santa hats in a single location. Art-lovers can attend the only arts and crafts museum in the New England Area when visiting the Fuller Craft Museum. Those interested in Massachusetts history can take a walk through the Brockton Fire Museum, detailing the origins of fire fighting within the city. Brockton made national news following a fire at its downtown Strand Theatre, during which 13 firemen were killed during duty, and the museum doubles as a memorial in their honor.
