One of the most important ways that Worcester residents can stay safe on the roads is to minimize their chances of becoming distracted while they are operating their vehicles. This can mean turning off their smartphones and starting their GPS devices before they get moving, having their routes planned out so they do not have to consult maps or directions, and making sure that passengers have what they need prior to starting their trip. A driver who is focused on the task of driving can react better to changing road conditions and can actively prevent the collisions that can hurt and even kill victims.

Vehicle accident victims can include those who are in the cars, trucks, and sport utility vehicles that actually collide with each other, but they can also include people who are outside the automobiles that crash. For example, a vehicle may hit a pedestrian and may cause that victim serious and even life-threatening injuries.

This unfortunate scenario recently played out in the coastal community of Seabrook. A man was hit by a Jeep when he was walking along Ocean Boulevard. Although he was taken to the hospital, he eventually died from his injuries.

If you have lost a loved one in a car accident, you may be able to sue the other driver if they were at fault. You may be able to recover compensation for hospital bills and funeral costs in a wrongful death case, along with other damages. You should contact an attorney if you have questions regarding your case.
