After any car accident, it is important to determine who caused it or who was at fault. In a car accident involving multiple vehicles, victims, and witnesses, the investigation could get complex. This is because there may be conflicting witness accounts. These cases may also involve several insurance companies and defense lawyers, which could further complicate matters.
If you have been involved in a multi-vehicle accident, it is important that you refrain from making any comments to insurance adjusters or giving them access to your medical records. Do not rush into a settlement. Once you agree to a settlement, you cannot receive further compensation. Gather as much evidence as possible from the scene, such as photographs, eyewitness testimony, and contact information.
