Multiple Injuries Reported Following Chain Reaction Crashes

Police have reported that at least 10 cars were involved in a long chain reaction crash on Route 283 in Mount Joy Township in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, September 4th, 2019.

The initial crash occurred when a semi-truck attempted to merge onto the highway and crashed into a car. This closed the right lane to traffic. Not long after, the driver behind the wheel of a dump truck was unable to stop his massive vehicle to avoid hitting others who were stopped due to the original accident. He crashed into several other cars, causing those cars to rear-end others. At least two people were taken to a nearby hospital and another two were treated at the scene.

Police are continuing to investigate the accidents.

Hi, I’m Brian Kent, I represent those who have been injured in an accident involving a semi-truck, fighting for their rights and for the compensation that they deserve.

Here’s what you need to know about being involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer. Nearly all tractor-trailers are fitted with an Electronic Control Module (ECM). These are similar to the “black boxes” that you may have heard about on airplanes. The ECM records data as the truck is being driven and that data can be used as evidence. However, trucking companies don’t willingly hand over the information recorded on an ECM, which is why working with an experienced attorney is important if you decide to take legal action.

Filing a lawsuit against those responsible for your serious injuries may seem like an extreme step when you have auto insurance, however, the insurance company won’t pay for your lost wages or provide relief for the pain your experiencing. In addition to this, once the policy limits have been met, you will be responsible for paying for any additional medical treatments you may need, even though the accident wasn’t your fault.

If you or a loved one were seriously injured in a truck accident, be sure to contact an experienced truck accident attorney as quickly as possible, so that evidence can be preserved, evidence which may be vital to proving your claim.
