I was recently injured in a multiple car accident. The cars in front of me were stopped, so I started to slow down. However, the pickup truck behind me didnt and slammed into the back of my car, which caused a pile up. Can I pursue a claim for my injuries?

Trying to prove who was to blame in a Virginia multi-car accident can be tricky.  The drivers involved, as well as their insurance companies, will try to place fault on someone else.

Since you were injured in the accident, you should obtain the appropriate medical care and be sure to follow through with the doctor’s recommendations for treatment.  You should also consider talking with a Virginia car accident attorney who will help you obtain compensation for your injuries.  A lawyer will be able to gather evidence, including copies of police reports and statements, to build your case.
