Los Angeles Multi-vehicle Accident Attorneys
Most car crashes that occur throughout Los Angeles involve just two parties: two vehicles, a motor vehicle and a motorcycle, a motor vehicle and a bicycle or pedestrian, etc. However, some accidents involve three or more vehicles – these are referred to as multi-vehicle accidents.
When a multi-vehicle accident occurs, not only are the damages sustained often significant, but fault can also be very difficult to determine and prove. The experienced Los Angeles multi-vehicle accident lawyers at the office of El Dabe Ritter Trial Lawyers can represent you in your claim for damages. Reach us today to learn more about how we can help.
HOW MULTI-VEHICLE ACCIDENTS HAPPEN
Most multi-vehicle accidents are referred to as chain reaction accidents, as they occur when one driver reacts to a crash, another driver reacts to the previous driver’s reactions, etc. Typically, a chain-reaction accident is a pile-up crash, where multiple vehicles rear-end each other, creating a line of involved vehicles that it at least three-cars long. These types of accidents often happen because drivers are following one another too closely, driving distracted, driving too fast for conditions, or driving while impaired.
However, not all multi-vehicle accidents are chain reaction or pile up accidents; sometimes, an accident involving three or more vehicles occurs as the result of an initial crash, when the force from a collision pushes one vehicle into the lane or path of another. For example, if a smaller passenger vehicle cuts off a semi truck, the truck may attempt to stop suddenly, causing the trailer to jackknife. As such, the trailer may come in contact with another vehicle–or more than one vehicle–as it sweeps across the road.
WHO’S TO BLAME FOR A MULTI-VEHICLE ACCIDENT COLLISION?
Determining fault in a multi-vehicle accident collision can be extremely difficult to do, as often even the cause of the initial accident is elusive and there are multiple parties to blame. When these accidents happen, a review of the evidence, such as police reports and eyewitness testimony, is important. In addition, accident reconstruction and forensic experts are often called in to assist in determining fault in these accident types.
YOU DESERVE TO BE COMPENSATED
While building a car accident claim following a multi-vehicle collision may be more complicated than is the construction of a claim involving only two parties, if you were harmed as a result of someone else’s negligence, you deserve to be compensated. Our lawyers will assist you by investigating your claim and determining fault, as well as calculating the damages you’ve suffered and aggressively negotiating to get you the settlement you deserve.
