Dedicated to Achieving the Outcome You Deserve
Any car accident has the potential to cause serious injury and devastation to the people involved, but those odds are greatly increased in a multi-vehicle accident. Most car accidents only involve two vehicles, but a multi-vehicle accident involves three or more. Fortunately, these kinds of accidents are relatively rare, but when they do occur, they can be devastating. Aside from the carnage and destruction caused by multi-vehicle accidents, another problem is that it can be difficult to find out who was responsible for starting the chain reaction that led to the accident.
A car accident attorney can help untangle the mess and identify the party that should be held liable. So, if you were involved in a multi-vehicle collision in Atlanta, contact Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. We have over 45 years of combined experience that we will use to help you. We can identify the party responsible for causing the multi-vehicle accident and hold them accountable. We are aware that there are certain complexities involved in multi-vehicle accidents that are not present in two-vehicle accidents, but we can help you no matter how complicated things get. So, contact Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. as soon as you can if you were in an Atlanta multi-vehicle accident.
Multi-vehicle are less common than other kinds of accidents because the conditions that can lead to them are relatively rare. But they can still happen, and when they do, it is usually for one of the following reasons:
Bad weather is a leading cause of multi-vehicle accidents. The conditions can cause multiple vehicles to lose control, resulting in a chain reaction of destruction. Conditions that cause slippery roads, poor visibility, or both can cause multi-vehicle accidents, so snow, fog, and heavy rain can lead to a multi-vehicle collision.
In some cases, an accident that only involves two vehicles could lead to a multi-vehicle collision. For example, a sideswipe accident is normally fairly minor, but one of the vehicles could get bumped into the opposite lane, causing chaos for oncoming traffic.
A reckless driver can cause a multi-vehicle collision because they force other drivers around them to react to their irresponsible behavior. A driver who constantly switches lanes or brake checks other drivers can cause an accident that affects multiple vehicles.
There are cases where part of a vehicle may malfunction unexpectedly and lead to an accident. For example, a tire blowout or brake failure might cause a driver to lose control and crash into other cars.
One of the many reasons why driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is bad is that the driver might not be able to react in time to an obstacle or hazard on the road. That could cause the driver to lose control of their car and crash into other vehicles.
It can be difficult to determine fault in a multi-vehicle accident because it isn’t always easy to find out who started the accident, plus it could turn out that multiple drivers are liable. That is why it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after you have been in a multi-vehicle accident because they can help to sort things out. They can use the help of experts to trace the person who originally caused the accident because it might not always be obvious. For example, if a multi-vehicle accident was caused by someone swerving out of their lane into oncoming traffic, that person would normally be held responsible. But it could turn out that another vehicle bumped into them, or they swerved to avoid an obstacle in the road.
If you were partially at fault for the accident, then Georgia’s modified comparative negligence law would be in effect. The law states that if you were less than 49% at fault for the accident, you are eligible to receive compensation for your damages. In this case, your compensation would be reduced based on your percentage of fault. One problem with multi-vehicle accidents is that if one person is responsible, they might not have enough insurance to cover everyone hurt in the accident. If their insurance runs out before you get compensated, you might need to use your insurance instead. That is why it is a good idea to have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage because it will pay what the at-fault driver should have paid.
A multivehicle accident is a devastating event that can cause serious injuries and heavy property damage. You will need compensation to pay for those expenses and the non-economic expenses like pain and suffering. Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. can help you get the compensation you need and identify the party or parties responsible for the accident. Contact Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. so we can do the heavy legal work while you focus on your recovery.
