Georgia Police investigate cause of seven-car crash

A seven-car accident on Highway 20/Knox Bridge Highway on April 12 left several cars with major damage. Georgia State Police are investigating the cause of the car crash. No one appeared to be seriously injured.

Emergency responders arrived on the scene to find a pileup involving a Ford pickup truck, Kia Optima, Toyota Corolla, Nissan Maxima, Toyota Scion, Mazda 3 and a BMW. The BMW, Kia and Corolla suffered major damage while the remaining cars only had minor damage. The driver and passenger of the BMW were on their way to a memorial service at nearby Georgia National Cemetery at the time of the accident. Emergency personnel took them to the service after they were checked for injuries and provided statements to police.

Accidents involving multiple cars can cause severe damage. Victims of accidents may suffer serious injury, ongoing medical issues and even death. Injuries can lead to costly expenses for medical care, time off work and a decrease in quality of life. In fatal accidents, the family members of victims may experience financial hardship caused by the loss of their loved one's income and incurred funeral costs.

Victims of car accidents may be entitled to financial compensation and may benefit from speaking with an attorney. An experienced attorney could examine the details of the case and determine whether a claim is warranted. The attorney may present supporting evidence and question expert witnesses. In the event of a settlement, the attorney could negotiate on behalf of the victim to maximize financial compensation.
