Waco Multiple Vehicle Accidents

By Williams & Brown LLP on September 27, 2015

Waco Multiple Car AccidentDriving can be a hazardous business, even if you yourself are a safe and careful driver. A recent story published on the website of Waco’s KCEN TV illustrates this. Two people were seriously injured in Harker Heights, southwest of Waco, when a car rear ended another and knocked their car into oncoming traffic. The rear-ended car was hit by a pickup truck that rolled over in the accident, ejecting the truck’s driver.

Car accidents involving three or more vehicles can lead to significant problems when determining who is at fault and whose insurance will cover the claims involved. Because multiple vehicle accidents are far more deadly and tend to cause worse injuries than standard two car accidents, insurance companies can stand to lose higher amounts of money when paying damages. Because of this, insurance companies may try to shift blame or deny liability.

If you are involved in a multiple vehicle accident, there are four immediate things you should do:

  • Seek medical attention. See that you and anyone else injured in the accident gets seen by a paramedic at the scene.
  • Call police. Having a law officer at an accident scene can help figure out the causes of an accident and determine fault. Be sure to get a complete accident report from the police department involved.
  • Get witness statements. In multi-vehicle accidents, drivers may point fingers at the other drivers involved. Having witnesses can be invaluable in these cases. Make sure you get the names, addresses, phone numbers, and any other valuable information from witnesses at the scene of the crash.
  • Contact an experienced traffic accident attorney. An experienced lawyer will fight against insurance companies that are reluctant to pay out damages.
