Chain Reaction Car Accidents
The Bellovin Law Firm, PLLC in Tucson, Arizona
The more vehicles involved in an accident, the more complex the case and the insurance coverage become.
Whether it is a 50 car pile-up in a dust storm on Interstate 10 or a 3 or 4 car rear-end collision at an intersection at a red light, It is important to have a skilled lawyer on the case immediately while the evidence is fresh, and the witnesses memories are clear.
Who Is At Fault In A Multiple Car Auto Accident?
In a collision that is a multiple car pile-up, it is hard to know who is really at fault and responsible. If you would have not struck the car in front of you except for the fact you were stuck in the back and pushed into the car in front of you, you are not responsible for the car in front of you. In that situation, the striking vehicle in the back is liable for all the injuries to the person and all the vehicle damage claims.
For example, if there were 4 cars involved and 3 were stopped at the stoplight and the 4th car hit the 3rd car in front of it and the 3rd car that was stopped got pushed into the 2nd car and then the 2nd car got pushed into the back of the 1st car, then the 4th car and their insurance company is responsible for all the damage and injuries they caused to the drivers and passengers and for the damage to the vehicles.
If there are so many vehicles involved in the multi-vehicle collision that there is not enough insurance available to pay all the claims, then we have to search for underinsured motorist insurance coverage to determine if we can obtain fair compensation for our client’s injuries.
Often, injuries in these types of collisions are more severe due to multiple impacts.
As you can see from this discussion, chain-reaction car accidents can be very complex and the need for a skilled lawyer to sort it all out is extremely important.
