There are many different factors regarding how a motor vehicle accident can affect the drivers involved, including the size of the vehicles involved, the number of vehicles involved and even the weather conditions as the accident occurred. Even the most minor of accidents can cause devastating injuries or be fatal, but when there are multiple vehicles involved in an accident, there is an even greater chance that there will be serious damage to those involved.
A three-car accident occurred recently in Massachusetts, the details of which are currently rather scarce. What is known for certain is that MedFlight was called to the scene of the accident, indicating that at least one individual is suffering from serious injuries. Some reports claim that a severe head injury was suffered by an elderly man, but these reports are unconfirmed. A reconstruction team was on-site shortly after the accident to try to gain a better understanding of how the accident occurred.
It is difficult to determine based on the reported information just how serious the accident is and how many injuries occurred, but it is hard to imagine that a three-car accident in which MedFlight was called is not cause for concern. An investigation will likely determine who was at fault in the accident.
If you are ever injured in a car accident of any kind, there will likely be a similar investigation because determining fault is very important in the aftermath of an accident, especially if one of the injured drivers attempts to file a claim. If you are injured in a car accident, you may wish to consider enlisting the aid of an attorney. Legal assistance cannot only help you with your claim, but also conduct a private investigation if you believe that the official investigation comes to an incorrect conclusion.
