The Dangers of Multi-Vehicle Accidents
Multi-vehicle collisions involve more damage than other accidents, making them much more dangerous and likely to lead to injuries. Since such accidents can inhibit traffic on the roadways, it may take longer for emergency vehicles to reach them.
Many factors can lead to a multi-vehicle collision, such as:
- Bad weather conditions
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Driver intoxication
- Cell phone use, including texting, talking, etc.
- High-speed police chases
- Talking with passengers or other distractions
When accidents include multiple vehicles, there can be a lot of money at stake in terms of compensation. However, one of the most challenging parts is determining who is at fault.
Who is at fault in my accident?
Determining fault in such an accident can be complicated since each car has a certain degree of responsibility toward the other drivers. If you are unsure who is at fault, you can file a claim against all the other driver's insurance companies. However, each of the other drivers may try to do the same. An experienced lawyer can provide necessary insight and support.
