What To Do When In A Multi-Vehicle Accident?

Multi-vehicle accidents are common. Filing a claim after a multi-vehicle accident may be challenging because of the possibility of a liability dispute.
The damages caused by a multi-vehicle collision often include both serious physical injuries and property damage that may exceed several thousands of dollars for each individual involved.
In these incidents, it is possible that one party will face multiple lawsuits and that multiple layers of insurance coverage must be analyzed and utilized.

What To Do When Involved In A Multi-Vehicle Accident?

  • Because drivers tend to place blame on one another, contact us before speaking to any insurance carrier, including your own.
  • Take photos of the scene, the vehicles involved and get contact information from any witnesses.
  • Seek medical attention for any injuries that you may have.

Comparative Negligence

California is a comparative negligence state. This means that one of the parties involved in the accident can still recover damages even if that party is partially at fault for the accident. The degree of the recovery may be reduced, however, by the degree of fault. Therefore, being “at fault” for the accident does not necessarily mean you have no right to a recovery.
