A three-car accident in New Braunfels on May 2 left two people injured and a portion of Loop 337 closed for nearly an hour. The car crash occurred in the 2500 block of Loop 337 around 3:30 pm. Work crews had the scene cleared and the road reopened by 4:30 pm.
The accident happened when one car rear-ended the car in front of it, which then rear-ended the next car. The middle car was sandwiched between the two other cars, and emergency personnel reportedly had to remove all of the car’s doors to remove the car’s driver and passenger. Both individuals were listed in stable condition but were airlifted to a nearby hospital as a precaution due to possible broken bones.

Car accidents caused by another driver’s negligence can lead to severe damage and costly expenses. Victims may suffer serious injury that requires extended medical care, rehabilitation and time off work. In the most severe accidents, the victim may suffer permanent injury or disability that causes a significant decrease in quality of life. If the accident is fatal, the victim’s family may experience financial hardship caused by the loss of the victim’s income in addition to emotional challenges.
Car accident victims may be entitled to damages to cover expenses related to the accident. An experienced attorney could review the accident and help determine if and how much compensation should be pursued. The attorney could advocate and negotiate on behalf of the victim or the victim’s family to try to obtain the highest possible financial compensation.
