It is Essential to Prove Fault

If you cannot prove who was at fault in a multi-car accident, then it will be you that is caught paying your medical bills and for any property damage. When we can prove fault, we can resolve disputes and ensure that the insurance adjustment process is fair.

In most cases, if a driver is found to be even partially at fault for an accident, they are likely to be required to compensate the injured parties relating to how at fault they were. For example, if one driver was 25% at fault then they would be responsible for 25% of medical bills and other damages.

Rear-End Accidents Involving Several Vehicles Are Particularly Complicated

In almost all cases, if a vehicle hits another vehicle from behind, the car that is in the rear is at fault. That said, when it comes to accidents with many vehicles, this is not always the case. In these accidents, a vehicle could be caught n the middle and hit the one in front of them. However, the car in the back that started the accident may be found at fault.

To prove this type of accident, an investigation is generally required. This can involve talking to witnesses, gathering any available video evidence, and working with accident reconstruction experts. Your personal injury attorney has experience with this process.

A Number of Factors Can Have an Impact on Fault

Regardless of the number of vehicles involved, there are many factors that can affect who is found to be at fault in an accident. Those factors can include who broke traffic laws, where the accident occurred, the weather and road conditions at the time of the accident, testimony from witnesses to the accident, police reports, the extent and location of damage to the vehicles, surveillance footage, and the intoxication levels of those involved.
