According to the family of Rogerio Rodrigues, the man who was injured in a Boston car accident involving New England Patriots football quarterback Tom Brady, his condition has gotten worse. Their Brockton personal injury lawyer, the 49-year-old Fall River man will undergo more tests.
The Boston motor vehicle crash occurred on Thursday in the Back Bay at the intersection of Commonwealth Avenue and Gloucester Street when Brady’s 2009 Audi S8 and a 1997 Mercury Villager collided. The football star was not injured.
Police say that Rodrigues’ son Ludgero allegedly ran a red light at the intersection. However, the 21-year-old maintains that he was the one with the green light.
Rodrigues, who was lying in the back seat when the Boston auto crash happened, fractured his nose and back. His family says that he has already had to undergo several surgeries.
Boston, Massachusetts Personal Injury
Proving who was negligent in causing a Boston car crash can be a complicated endeavor unless you have an experienced Boston injury law firm representing you. There may be conflicting witness accounts and evidence that has yet to be uncovered.
In some cases, the negligent party is a motorist. In other Boston car crash incidents, the entities responsible for creating a poorly designed roadway, failing to repair faulty traffic signals, neglecting to clear debris off the road, or put in place the proper safety measures when a highway construction zone has been set up may be at fault. Still other Boston car crashes happen because one of the vehicles involved malfunctioned. This can pave the way for a Boston auto products liability lawsuit.
