Multi-vehicle car accident lands 4 in the hospital

To allow for a smoother commute, most drivers will periodically switch lanes to accommodate other drivers on the highway. While this task is very common, motorists should use extreme caution when maneuvering into the slow or fast lanes. For one Texas driver, a simple mistake led to a multi-vehicle car accident while merging into the slow lane.

On a recent Friday night, during the evening hours, a single vehicle was the cause of a chain reaction when it collided with another vehicle, then flipped over while merging into the slow lane. A third vehicle was also involved while trying to avoid the accident. While the investigation continues, it is still unclear as to what exactly caused the incident.

Car accidents that involve chain reactions can be particularly challenging when filing claims for personal injuries. Pinpointing an exact cause can help to determine who is ultimately at fault. Investigators will sort through multiple factors such as speed, intoxication, distraction, fatigue and witness statements when determining who is to blame. The wait can be excruciating for victims, especially when injuries are suffered.

Within the state of Texas, car accident victims may be entitled to pursue civil actions against a driver who is believed to be at fault. Injured victims may be able to receive compensation to help alleviate the cost of any medical care or other bills received as a result of the accident. Experienced legal counsel can help injured victims identify every potential source of recovery that is available to them.
