The Wednesday morning commute into work became a crawl for some motorists along a stretch of Route 1 in Peabody. Those hoping for an early arrival to the office were disappointed when they encountered a crash just past exit 44 at approximately 6:00 am. There in the breakdown lane of the highway was a crash involving multiple vehicles. At least one person has been reported as injured in the crash but it is unknown whether the injuries are severe or life-threatening.
As of 6:30 am, police and medical personnel were both on scene of the crash and were directing motorists around the accident while they investigated and attempted to restore the traffic flow on Route 1. Motorists who encountered the wreck were stuck in traffic for several minutes due to the heavy delays approaching the accident scene. The crash is expected to be cleared in an hour and, barring further incident, rush hour traffic should proceed as normal following the clearing.
Police in Peabody continue to investigate and have not released any statements regarding the cause of the crash or the severity of injuries.

For those not involved in an accident, they are frustrating because they often cause long travel delays which results in inconvenience to all motorists. For those that are involved, the experience is worse, especially if injuries occur from the collision.
Some car accident injuries may last only a short period of time and will respond well to medical treatment while others will linger for months and even years after the accident and may require a variety of treatment methods, including therapy all the way up to surgical intervention. In these types of cases, you do not want to settle too soon because your medical costs for the future will not be covered if you take a quick settlement offered by the insurance company and sign away your rights to receive future payments.
If you are injured in a vehicle crash, you probably wonder what the next step should be. You need to focus on your recovery but you are facing other pressures which are causing uncertainty about your future. In these times, you need the help of an experienced Boston personal injury attorney.
