Massachusetts woman suffers fatal personal injury when hit by SUV

For most people, each day begins with a regular routine, with the hope that it will continue smoothly. No one wants to think about the possibility that something unexpected, or even tragic, will happen, resulting in personal injury. Recently, however, one elderly Massachusetts woman experienced the worst possible tragedy while simply going about her day.

The 80-year-old had just left her apartment complex with her walker. She was likely on her way to buy her regular morning coffee when she bent down beside a white Infiniti SUV to retrieve something. Allegedly, the female driver then suddenly accelerated, running over the woman, and inflicting serious damage to her head and neck, resulting in death.

When an accident such as this happens, one expects all involved parties will remain at the scene, but it seems as though that did not happen in this case. The driver did call 911, but then, allegedly, drove away from the scene just as emergency personnel were beginning to arrive: according to the prosecutor, the driver later claimed to not know what happened. She did eventually turn herself in to authorities and was charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing the victim's death. The driver pleaded not guilty, and after a brief arraignment, was released without bail.

The victim's family members are now not only grieving the loss of their loved one, but are also understandably upset over the fact that the driver was released without bail. In cases such as this where a victim's death has occurred, families such as this one may consider speaking with a Massachusetts personal injury lawyer. A successfully litigated wrongful death claim may provide financial assistance for funeral costs and other unexpected expenses, as well as some comfort during a sad and stressful time.
