Multi-vehicle crash ensues on Tennessee highway


In accidents involving multiple vehicles, it is sometimes difficult to provide police with a clear account of what happened after the crash. One car clips another car, and then a third car tries to swerve out of the way and hits a fourth vehicle -- and pretty soon there are many vehicles involved and no one can provide a clear explanation as to how it all started. Nonetheless, it is important for everyone involved to remember as best they can all the details of the accident so fault can be assigned to guilty parties and victims can pursue compensation for the damages inflicted on them.

Traffic was backed up for nearly six hours on a Tennessee highway after an accident involving multiple vehicles took place. Heading west on an interstate highway, a car rear-ended another car after encountering slow traffic. An SUV then hit that car, causing it to spin around, and two additional vehicles were then dragged into the accident. One died as a result of the crash while two others were injured.

Car accidents comprise the majority of personal injury claims in the U.S. Sadly, they are all-too-common occurrences that can have devastating results for all involved. Because of how frequently these accidents occur, many victims are dragged into a car wreck through no fault of their own.

When another driver is at fault for an accident, a victim has a chance at receiving compensation by filing a personal injury claim. By successfully pushing such a claim through court, a victim can be awarded financial benefits for medical expenses, lost wages and other costs, giving them a shot at a fair recovery.
