Chula Vista Collision Leaves Two Men with Major Injuries
Major injuries were reported after a two-vehicle crash on Wednesday morning in Chula Vista.
Multiple vehicles collided around 5:45 a.m. on Interstate 5 on September 7th.
According to CHP, a Toyota SUV collided with a Honda SUV, causing the Toyota to lose control and flip.
In an attempt to avoid the SUV flipping, surrounding vehicles got into additional crashes.
Two male drivers sustained serious injuries and were hospitalized for treatment.
No other injuries were reported.
Investigators are actively working to determine liability for the accident.
Multi-vehicle collisions are typically more common in busy intersections or highways. Speeding, weather, distractions, and drowsy or intoxicated driving are main reasons negligent drivers cause these types of wrecks.
When it comes to filing a claim with this type of collision, it gets difficult. This is because multiple vehicles are involved so determining liability can take much longer. Multi-vehicle collision claims are more complex due to numerous victims, multiple negligent drivers, cross-claims and insufficient insurance.
If your injuries are caused by the negligence of a third party you may be entitled to compensation.
It is also important to remember that in the state of California a person involved in a car accident who has sustained injuries has to file a claim within two years of the accident.
