Who is liable in a three car collision in the state of texas? Also, worst case scenario?

San Antonio, TX |

A car a good distance away from mine braked since the car in front did a fast brake, I was a good distance away going about 35-40mph but, when I hit the brakes the car slid a few feet and hit the middle vehicle, causing that vehicle to hit another. There was scuffed paint on the middle car and literally NO damage on the very front car, my car has chipped paint but, no body damage on any of the vehicles. What is the worst case scenario? Also, no one was injured. Woman in the middle vehicle may try to claim injury on her child but, when I asked they said they were both fine.
