It is not unheard of for someone to get into two car wrecks within a short period of time. This recently happened to two clients of mine. Both wrecks were not their fault. The question I received really stemmed from what do I do about the first wreck.
When you have two wrecks in a close time frame, usually you are in a situation where the first at fault party’s insurance will deny coverage for any treatment after the second wreck date. In other words, if you were involved in a wreck on June 1st, 2009, and then had another wreck on June 10, 2009. Assuming both were not your fault, the insurance company for the at fault party will likely deny any coverage after the second accident on June 10th. You may also run into an issue with the second insurance carrier denying any injuries that were documented from the first wreck.
So where does this put you? If you are involved in this type of situation you need to contact an attorney immediately. The specifics of each wreck will vary and it is important in attempting to find out which accident was more severe in nature, and there are many other details which must be determined prior to attempting to see if either insurance company will consider resolving either of the wrecks.
