About 15 miles up the coast from Boston is the North Shore village of Swampscott, which has a population of around 15,000. As one of the wealthier communities in Massachusetts, it is a desirable place to live and play. Among its amenities is that it sits on the Atlantic Ocean with 5 sandy but accessible beaches along a mostly rocky shoreline. In the more upscale beachfront areas, home prices are typically several million dollars. Though inland residences are from $500,000 and up, you can find homes for under $300,000.
More and more towns and cities are accommodating bicycle traffic by building trails or providing bicycle lanes on city streets. With congested traffic a major headache for commuters and everyone else, traveling to work or running errands by bicycle is a convenient and economical mode of transportation. Unfortunately, Swampscott bike accidents are sometimes caused by unexpected dangers in the roadways that may not necessarily constitute a hazard for motor vehicles.
A wrongful death claim or survivor action in a car accident is brought by the administrator or executor of the decedent’s estate. If the decedent died intestate, or without a Will, the court will appoint someone. The claim is brought for the benefit of the immediate family members, or spouses, children or parents of the deceased.
