Multivehicle Accident Claims
Sacramento Auto Accident Lawyers Experienced In Complex Cases
Accidents involving more than one car usually occur in a chain of rear-end accidents. Typically, they happen because of the force of the first collision, which causes a chain reaction from the cars behind the first. Although these types of accidents can be a result of a single driver’s negligence, chain reaction car accidents may involve instances of carelessness by multiple drivers. Because many vehicles are involved, many passengers may sustain injuries, resulting in lawsuits.
If you’ve been involved in a multi-vehicle accident, contact a car accident attorney with The Weinberger Law Firm immediately after you exchange insurance information with all drivers involved, obtain witness contact information and contact the police.
Who Is Responsible?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Association, there are 2 million multi-vehicle collisions each year. And determining fault is the biggest issue with them all. If a driver admits fault, then assigning liability is pretty easy. But when other factors are at play like bad weather, road construction, and drunk or distracted driving, proving liability becomes a bit more tricky. Our legal team has experience identifying the responsible party and holding them accountable.

Multi-vehicle collisions are notoriously more deadly than other collisions. Each vehicle involved means a greater amount of broken glass, bent steel, leaking gasoline, etc. The possibility of fire increases and if passengers cannot get out of their vehicles, there’s a chance they may burn to death. Moreover, because multicar accidents often result in blocked roadways, it’s often difficult for fire and rescue vehicles to get to the crash site quickly. If you’ve been involved in a multi-vehicle accident, do not wait to contact a Sacramento car accident attorney.
