U.S.: A drag racer wrecks, injuring his cousin. Who does the cousin sue?

  • Basically, under Massachusetts law I’m trying to get compensation for my client anywhere I can.
  • Roland Hughes • Lawyer for the father of Brandon Pereira, who was involved in an accident with his cousin Timothy. Timothy Pereira was drag-racing on the wrong side of the road at 81 mph in a 30 mph zone, and hit another car at high speed, injuring both passengers of that vehicle along with Brandon. Despite the fact that Timothy is in jail facing multiple charges for causing the accident, Hughes filed a lawsuit against the people in the other vehicle. Which is just disgusting. • source
