If you suffered injuries in a car accident, chances are you are wondering whether you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages. An accident involving two drivers can be complicated, especially if there are questions about who is at fault and how much compensation the injury victim is owed. But when an accident involves multiple drivers and parties, the complexities increase. The compassionate and experienced Boston car accident attorneys at Mass Injury Group are available to assist injury victims with ensuring that they receive the outcome that they deserve during a civil trial and while working with insurance companies.
Recently, multiple drivers and passengers were injured when a crash involving roughly 30 vehicles happened on Interstate 95 near Bangor, Maine, during the early morning commute. Fortunately, no one lost their life as a result of the accident, but many individuals involved in the accident were treated for their injuries while a number were transported to a nearby hospital via helicopter. According to reports prepared regarding the crash, many motorists reported being blinded by the early morning sun resulting in a chain reaction pileup as approaching vehicles were unable to avoid colliding with cars stopped in front of them.
This is not the first instance that a massive pileup has happened on Interstate 95, which also runs through Massachusetts. In a densely populated state like Massachusetts, morning rush hour traffic can be incredibly thick and lead to an increase in chances of an injury accident taking place. When drivers are heading to work in the morning, many are running late, engaged in distracted driving activities like eating or talking on the phone, or simply not paying attention to the rapid changes in traffic during rush hour.
