Commentary

When an accident involves this many vehicles, it's very rare that the factors contributing to the accident will be straight-forward. There is sure to be a lot of finger pointing, especially once insurance companies get involved. When you have multiple companies all fighting to avoid losing money, things are going to get chaotic, and ultimately the victims will be the ones who suffer for it. Getting compensation after an accident requires thorough investigations and tangible evidence to support one's claim and ensure insurance companies don't get to play he-said-she-said with the facts. The article below delves further in-depth into this subject, so those looking for more information will find it a valuable resource.
