Understanding Insurance Claims And Liability In Multi-Car Wrecks
Multi-car pileups are often a chain reaction of collisions resulting from:
- A rear end collision from slowed or stopped traffic
- A spilled load from a tractor-trailer
- A rollover accident
- An unsafe lane change
- Slippery conditions from heavy rain
Our legal team will work with experts who can testify on how the accident happened. More than one driver may be at fault. For example, one vehicle may have braked suddenly to avoid debris spilled from a semi truck. This can result in a series of rear-end collisions from vehicles that were following too close to safely stop. In this scenario, both the semi driver and any vehicles that did not provide a safe stopping distance may be liable.
Our experienced trial lawyers are not afraid to take insurance companies to court to ensure you recover enough compensation for medical bills, lost wages, lasting disability, pain and suffering, and future needs.
