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.
