A third vehicle, driving behind the eastbound truck, hit the wreckage. Three people were transported to Harborview Medical Center with injuries.
Multivehicle accidents present some of the most complex issues in terms of causation and responsibility. There can be several layers of responsibility superimposed over one accident scene. They also present a host of opportunities in terms of insurance coverage. However, it’s important to carefully stylize and structure the claims asserted to ensure that available insurance proceeds are maximized.
