New Bedford, MA Car Accident Results In Teen’s Personal Injuries 

Our client is a senior at New Bedford High School and had just started a new job at Dunkin’ Donuts.  His mother called us after he was struck by a careless driver.  When he is not working, he enjoys basketball and had just started driving himself to work and school. 

One afternoon, when he was traveling on Tarkiln Hill in New Bedford, he came across an intersection. A careless driver failed to stop and see our client traveling and proceeded to go past the stop sign. 

As the at-fault driver proceeded through the stop sign and entered the intersection, they struck our client, veering him into a pole located on the corner of Oliver Street and Tarkiln Hill Road.

Rescue rushed our client from the scene to Hasbro Children’s Hospital. Our client would not only miss school but would miss work and the enjoyment of sports his senior year. 

Our client’s injuries would need time to heal, and he was referred to Boston Orthopedic for treatment. His mother’s vehicle was towed from the scene, and later totaled and now he would be out of transportation for work and school. 

Our client had multiple abrasions on his body and pain radiating down his arms from his shoulders. His mother was not only concerned about him missing work, but him missing out on school work as well.
