The female driver of the Nissan Altima, reported as being in her mid-20s, suffered serious injuries and was taken to a Boston hospital by ambulance after a MedFlight helicopter could not be used due to weather conditions. She reportedly suffered internal injuries and suspected broken bones.
An elderly man and woman were in the Subaru Legacy, and the man was being treated for an unidentified head injury at the hospital. According to reports, neither the elderly woman nor the dog that was traveling with them were injured.
The Easton Fire Captain reported that there were no clear brake marks on the road, making it difficult to determine exactly what happened. He believed the vehicles were both traveling between 45 and 50 miles per hour at the time of the impact.
A brain injury caused by an auto accident can be extremely serious, and it can take some time to identify the extent of the injury and what the long-term repercussions will be. This is why it is critical for victims considering a personal injury lawsuit to understand their injuries and treatment plans. Once a victims has an idea of what impact the injury has had and will have on his or her life, an attorney can explain all of the legal options available.
