People are injured in car accidents every day, often due to the negligence of another driver. When only two vehicles are involved, it can be fairly straightforward to pinpoint who is liable. However, in accidents involving multiple vehicles, liability can become more complex. An experienced multiple vehicle accident lawyer with good resources is invaluable in order to ensure that the correct people are found liable and you get the compensation you deserve.

Liability In A Multi-Vehicle Crash
Liability in a collision involving multiple vehicles can be difficult to determine, and requires dedication and thorough investigation by your lawyer. Insurance companies may try to assign liability in a way that does not necessarily reflect the truth of the accident, so that they don't need to pay out as much money as they should. The team at the Reid B. Wissner Law Offices can fight unethical insurance companies in order to get you more compensation.
Liability may be spread between multiple parties, or a single party may be found to be liable for the entire accident. Examples of potential liable parties could include:
- A drunk driver
- A distracted driver
- A driver who started an accident chain by rear-ending another car
- A driver who lost control and caused a chain reaction of collisions
If you were injured in a multi-car crash, please don't hesitate to contact us. The faster we can investigate, the better.
Damages In A Multi-Car Crash Personal Injury Lawsuit
Accidents involving multiple vehicles often result in severe injuries, which could include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue damage
- Spinal injuries
These injuries could result in you having to take significant time off of work, which may impact your ability to provide for your family. In addition, if you need surgery or extensive medical care, your hospital bills may exceed your ability to pay. If you end up with chronic pain or disability, your ability to earn income in the future may be reduced.
Damages you could receive from a successful personal injury lawsuit could help you cover all of your medical treatment, including rehabilitation and at-home care if needed. You may also receive damages for pain and suffering or PTSD, plus lost wages. If the driver at fault was under the influence or acting in a criminal manner, you may also receive punitive damages.
