We’ve all been there at some time or another. The driver behind you seems to think that the closer he drives to your vehicle, the faster you will move. You can’t get inside the mind of the tailgating driver. You don’t know if he is en route to an emergency or simply impatient. However, you don’t need to know the reason the driver is tailgating. Instead, you need to understand the risks presented by a tailgating driver, and you need to know what to do if you have been hurt in an I-70 chain-reaction accident.
Risks of Tailgating on I-70 and Other Missouri and Kansas Roads
One of the biggest risks presented by a tailgating driver is that the driver is going to rear-end your car—which could, in turn, cause you to hit the car in front of you, cause cars behind the driver to hit the driver, or cause one (or both) of your cars to spin around and collide with vehicles in other lanes. The resulting chain-reaction accident can have serious consequences for you, and possibly other victims.
If you are hurt in a chain-reaction accident, then it is important to get immediate medical attention and to consult an experienced I-70 accident lawyer.
