When a car accident takes a person's life, the victim's family suffers considerable grief. But imagine the effect of losing three family members in the same accident, especially in a city far away from home. That's what happened to one young woman who was traveling home from New Jersey with her mother, father and brother late last month.
A car accident of any size can be chaotic, but typically, the more cars that are involved, the more confusing the aftermath. Crash scene investigators must determine not only how the accident was caused, but what role each involved vehicle played. Chain-reaction crashes can involve multiple insurance and personal injury claims, such as in cases where one car caused another vehicle to crash into yet another, and so on.
