The potential causes of multi-car accidents
Multi-car accidents, or collisions involving more than two cars, can be caused by a number of causes, including:
- A succession of rear-end incidents might result from a sudden slowdown or stop on the highway. The collision might have been caused by a distracted motorist in the back, or it could have been caused by the driver in front stopping for no reason, in which case he or she could be partially to blame.
- Accidents can also be caused by road debris, such as spilled cargo from tractor-trailers, a blown tire, or any other object.
- Fog, rain, sleet, or snow can cause vision problems and slippery road conditions, making driving dangerous.
- When driving at a rapid rate, drivers have less time to respond. A single blunder might kick off a fatal sequence of events.
- Drowsy drivers. Fatigued drivers have shorter response times and short spells of inattention, which can lead to collisions.
- Distracted drivers. Texting, reading a map, eating, grooming, conversing with passengers, and even boredom can cause a gap in concentration, resulting in an accident.
Are these the only potential causes of multi-car accidents? No, but they are some of the most common causes we have dealt with.
Determining liability on a multiple car accident
Sorting out liability following a multi-car collision can be difficult since there are several drivers and cars involved. To identify who is responsible, a comprehensive investigation is necessary, especially when more than one motorist may be determined to be at fault.
The at-fault driver or drivers are usually responsible for the costs incurred by those who are involved in the accident. California is a comparative fault state, which adds another degree of complication to an already complex issue. If you’ve been in a multi-car accident, the degree of blame assigned to you might affect your liabilities as well as your ability to obtain compensation for your losses.
How a personal injury attorney can help
When a multi-car collision happens, who judges who is at fault? Because the highway patrol has other responsibilities in the aftermath of an accident, the problem is frequently left to the courts and insurance companies to resolve. That is why it is critical for anybody involved in a car accident to seek the advice of an expert attorney.
Your lawyer will act swiftly to acquire and preserve crucial evidence, collaborate with specialists to recreate the accident so that the facts are apparent, and utilize their knowledge to successfully present your case.
We recognize that a multi-car collision may have significant, life-altering implications, leaving you with property damage, current and future medical bills, missed earnings, and pain and suffering to deal with. Call DLC Law now at (626) 285-8815 for a consultation.
