Multi-car accidents are dangerous and scary because threats to your safety are coming from more than one direction.In a second or two, the road can become an obstacle course with several cars smashing into each other. This leads to confusion and can cause more crashes and injuries. Multi-car crashes are also more complex for personal injury attorneys to handle in settlement negotiations because they involve several defendants and insurance companies. That is why it is important to hire an experienced multi-car accident attorney such as those you will find at The Mann Law Firm.
Dangers of Multi-Car CrashesA chain reaction or multi-car crash can be especially hazardous because there is usually a first and second impact. The first impact happens when the negligent driver hits you. The second impact may occur when other drivers try to avoid a collision and may hit you again. When you are hit in an accident more than once, the chance of serious injury or death rises. There can be more than one cause of personal injuries in a multi-vehicle crash. One of the jobs of the personal injury attorney in such cases is to determine whether more than one party was responsible for your injuries. The more parties that are found negligent, the higher the possible compensation you can receive.
Multi-Car Crashes That Lead to Most CompensationWhile every car accident case is different, experience shows that the following multi-car accident cases often lead to higher amounts of compensation. If you have been in one of these sorts of accidents, talk to The Mann Law Firm today:
- Vehicle rear ends another on a busy street and is rear-ended by the car behind, leading to a chain reaction of rear-end crashes. Compensation could be even higher if your vehicle is pushed into oncoming traffic.
- Two vehicles collide on a busy street, and one car is sent into the oncoming lane of traffic, leading to drivers swerving into each other to avoid a crash.
- A driver changes lanes too fast on a highway, causing other drivers to stop and to swerve out of their lane and hit other drivers.
