A rollover in Braintree on Tuesday afternoon resulted in a 94-year-old Hull woman being injured, police told the Boston Globe. They said that her vehicle was struck by another one on Quincy Avenue. It came to a stop on its roof, and Braintree firefighters had to help get the woman out of the vehicle. The woman was taken to the South Shore Hospital in Weymouth, and her condition is not currently known. She is in the intensive care unit. The driver of the other car, a 39-year-old woman from Quincy, was cited for a lane violation.
The fact that this second driver was cited for a lane violation could indicate that she was negligent. At Altman & Altman LLP, our car accident lawyers investigate accident scenes, retain experts and examine all evidence to determine whether persons have grounds for a personal injury claim.
Our firm can also look into the possibility that automobiles or auto parts were defective when, as in this case, there is a rollover situation. The NHTSA reports that in 37 percent of fatal crashes, SUVs rolled over. Defective designs with unstable, high centers of gravity have been found to cause rollover tendencies in certain SUV brands.
