In a typical car accident involving just two vehicles, it can be challenging to determine who was actually at fault. However, in collisions with several vehicles, resulting in multiple accidents, it can be even messier to determine how the accident started, who hit who, and what actually happened. In these Texas chain-reaction car accidents, it is crucial that accident victims have an experienced attorney in their corner to help them pursue the compensation they deserve.
According to a recent news report, a young man was killed in an accident when he laid down his motorcycle to avoid hitting a stopped car on the road. Local authorities stated that the motorcyclist was coming up a hill when he noticed a long line of stalled cars in front of him. When two vehicles that were ahead of the young man swerved out of the way to avoid crashing into the line of stalled cars, it caused the motorcyclist to lay down his bike and crash into the back of a stopped car. Although he was wearing a helmet, authorities reported that the motorcyclist did not survive the crash. The incident is still being investigated by local law enforcement, but the crash was likely an accident without criminal conduct involved.
One of the biggest problems in these accidents is that the at-fault party or parties do not have enough insurance coverage to fully compensate a victim for the injuries they suffered as a result of the accident. All Texas drivers must have auto insurance minimums of $30,000 per person and $60,000 per accident for bodily injury liability. Also, drivers are required to have at least $25,000 in coverage for property damage.
