Atlanta Multi-Car Collision Accident Attorneys Representing Individuals And Families Nationwide
Not long ago, poor visibility and weather conditions led to a multi-car pileup on I-75 that ended in tragedy for many people, including one Georgia family. Investigations and lawsuits from this crash are ongoing, illustrating just how complex legal issues can become when several vehicles are involved in one major crash.
Who or what caused the crash? Specifically with chain-reaction crashes that involve multiple vehicles, determining who is at fault can be difficult and require an in-depth investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding the crash.
- Did a distracted driver stop short because he or she was texting rather than paying attention to the road?
- Were any of the drivers impaired by drugs or alcohol?
- Did weather conditions create poor visibility that made it impossible to see cars or trucks parked or slowed on the road?
- Was a car or truck poorly maintained with non-functioning brake lights?
Is an accident reconstructionist needed to determine fault or responsibility? Chances are, yes, the scene will need to be analyzed and the crash recreated to determine who was at fault and who should pay for any resulting injuries. The sooner this investigation begins, the better as the crash expert will need to review:
- Skid marks or debris on the road
- Placement or location of the vehicles after the crash
- Witness statements or testimony as to what went wrong leading up to the multi-car crash
We have the resources to hire the best accident reconstructionists in the country to work on your case and have a track record of obtaining substantial results in car wreck cases.
Who is responsible for the injuries and property damage caused by the crash? In a multi-car crash, there may be one or two at-fault drivers but eight or nine injured people or damaged vehicles. Typically, an individual insurance policy will have dollar limits, or maximum coverage amounts, that may or may not be enough to cover the full extent of damage or injury caused in a multi-car crash. Possible sources of recovery for your injuries include:
- The at-fault driver's insurance
- The at-fault driver's employer's insurance, if applicable
Your own insurance if the at-fault driver was uninsured or underinsured
