Understanding The Recovery Process For Multi Car Accident Victims
As investigators do their work and determine causes and liability for this accident the woman who was injured and her family should be focused on making sure she receives the best quality of care possible after the accident.
Police reports typically come available in the days following an accident and contain information including an initial determination of fault as well as potential witness statements, photographs of the scene and other crucial information for laying the groundwork for a claim.
At this time, reports have indicated that only one person was injured in the collision, however over time additional injuries like potential soft tissue injuries to the joints and ligaments, or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) could surface from others involved in the collision and as such, all parties involved would be wise be checked out following the accident.
Multiple potential injured parties in an accident could also make a settlement more complicated as most insurance plans offer per person and per accident limits, meaning that even if three or four individuals are injured in an accident and could make a reasonable claim for the insurance limits available, the total settlement for all parties cannot go beyond the per accident limit.
