Fault & Liability in Multi-Car Accidents

Determining fault and liability in any car accident depends on the unique facts involved. In some cases, it can be as straightforward as proving that the other driver was drunk or intoxicated at the time, or as difficult as arguing against insurance companies that claim a victim was negligence or at fault for causing or contributing to their wrecks. In multi-vehicle accidents, proving fault and liability often becomes the most challenging aspect of a case, as there can be many potential causes, and multiple parties to blame.

At Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC, our experience has taught us the effective strategies needed to address fault and liability in multi-vehicle accidents. These often consist of a targeted focus on various steps, including:

  • Thorough and meticulous investigations to determine an underlying cause
  • Identifying all involved parties and potential parties at-fault
  • Working with law enforcement to evaluate any police reports
  • Gathering evidence or working with experts to support a case
  • Crafting sound arguments as to who was negligent and how
  • Arguing against claims that victims contributed to their own injuries
  • Negotiating fair settlements with insurance companies, or litigating when necessary

Multi-vehicle accidents are complex largely because they can involve issues where multiple parties contributed to collisions. For example, this may be the case when a driver who is texting fails to slow their vehicle on a congested highway, causing a rear-end accident that leads to a pile-up. Addressing such issues means investigating meticulously, and pinpointing where negligence, safety or traffic violations, or other acts of carelessness took place. Other situations and acts of negligence our firm can handle include:

Whatever the situation may be, it is important to remember that all drivers on the road have a legal duty to take steps that allow them to safely operate their vehicles – and they can be held accountable when they fail to do so. By working with a firm that has the resources to conduct investigations into a multi-vehicle accident, as well as the experience to fight insurance companies that want to shift blame to other drivers, you can gain the support to pursue the compensation you deserve.
