Multi-Car Accidents

One of the worst things to happen in a car crash is for it to escalate into a multiple car crash. It’s rare that everyone involved in these walks away unharmed. Also, vehicle damage is often extensive.

When multi-car are involved, they can be as chaotic as the accident itself. So, what should you do if you find yourself in a multi vehicle crash?

Right After the Crash

First and foremost, see to your own safety. Do not get out of your car unless it is safe. Make sure you’re not injured before you even move.

Once you’re sure you and everyone who was in your vehicle are safe, try to take photos or video of the scene. Get pictures of any damage done to your vehicle.

Get insurance information from everyone involved and be prepared to give yours in exchange. Wait for the police to arrive and fill out the report, then contact your insurance adjustor.

Proving Liability in a Multi-Car Accident

Generally, these things are a chain reaction. One car rear-ends another, causing that car to rear-end the car in front of them, etc. Conversely, a distracted driver may stop too short and cause the car behind them to rear-end them.

In order to discover the initial cause of the collision, working with a multi-car accident lawyer can help you consider all the factors. Evidence must be examined, and witnesses must be questioned. The lawyer may hire an expert witness to help with the case. Any manufacturing defects of the vehicle(s) in question are also taken into consideration.
