Complications Abound in Multi-Vehicle Crashes
If you are involved in a car accident with one other vehicle, establishing fault is usually a matter of deciding if you or the other driver is to blame for the accident. Occasionally, there may be a third party responsible, such as a government entity or construction road crew. When the accident involves multiple vehicles, however, establishing fault can become increasingly difficult.
Multi-vehicle crashes or pileups usually result from a chain reaction. In most multi-vehicle accidents, there may be multiple parties to blame for different components of the accident. You yourself may share some of the blame for the accident or for a portion of the pileup. With so many differing points of view, it can be difficult to establish negligence and know which insurance company to contact. To make matters worse, insurance companies understand these complications and are usually reluctant to reach settlements until the chain of negligence is fully established.
To further complicate matters, passengers in varying vehicles may be seeking compensation from all parties responsible or from the driver of the very vehicle they were riding in. As such, you may find yourself seeking compensation from other drivers’ insurance companies and defending yourself from lawsuits at the same time.
The complexities that surround multi-vehicle crashes are endless and require a law firm with the resources to fight aggressively for your rights. Insurance companies do not usually reach settlements quickly when there are multiple parties involved and everyone begins pointing fingers at everyone else, in an attempt to reduce their own liabilities.
When significant injuries or deaths are involved, the complications become even greater, with much more at stake. Injured accident victims or families who have lost a loved one will need money for medical expenses, lost wages, lost future earnings, pain and suffering, and more. Choosing a lawyer who understands the complications that can arise in a multi-vehicle crash is important to obtaining the compensation you need—and deserve.
