Residents and workers have many commuting options. They can travel by car, bicycle or walk. The Brockton Area Transit Authority also offers bus service and is located on Court Street.

Brockton Car Accidents
Car accidents happen when you least expect it, when a driver fails to pay attention to the road or engages in distracted driving behaviors, such as talking on a cell phone or texting while driving. It is emotional and traumatic to suffer an injury and there can be long-term consequences for you and your family, your finances and your quality of life. Because of these stakes, it is important to contact an attorney promptly.

Massachusetts saw hundreds of fatal car crashes in 2014, with many more causing serious personal injury, according to the Institute for Highway Safety. The state has one of the highest proportions of car occupant deaths (48 percent) and a high proportion of pedestrian deaths (21 percent), according to the institute. 

After 2014 brought a high number of local fatal pedestrian crashes, the City of Brockton has worked to improve safety for pedestrians.

The city announced plans to increase electronic message boards, create public service messages for radio and TV stations and conduct a safety audit of roads in the area around Brockton High School, according to the Patriot Ledger newspaper. But car accidents have continued, including several fatal car crashes, when drivers have failed to pay attention or been negligent. In 2016, an elderly man was tragically hit and killed while walking right near Brockton District Court.

Ron got the insurance company to settle for the maximum on the policy. And so as a result of that, my son went back to school. Jeff
