4-vehicle accident invovling semi sends 2 to hospital

Interstate travel is faster and likely safer than travel on two-lane roads. However, when accidents occur on interstates, they often involve multiple vehicles of all different types. In a recent crash on I-64 in Kanawha County, a four-vehicle accident involved a semi pulling an excavator, a pickup towing a car and a car.

According to authorities, the semi was stopped in traffic because of another accident up ahead. A car was in front of the semi when it was hit by the pickup towing the other car. The car in front of the semi then crashed into the tractor-trailer.

The driver of the car and the driver of the pickup both had to be extricated from their vehicles. At last report, both suffered serious injuries and were taken to CAMC General hospital.

When crashes like this occur, it can sometimes be difficult to determine the at-fault driver. What is important is that all of the injured parties receive medical attention first and foremost. Once the police report is finished, then you can begin dealing with your insurance company and the other driver's insurance company.

If you were not the person responsible for causing the accident, you have a right to seek compensation from the person who was. an attorney can bring the lawsuit if an acceptable settlement is not forthcoming from the insurance companies.

Depending on the accident, you may be able to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. Your attorney can determine what damages you should file for and any other important information you should know.
