Who Is Liable for a Multi-Car Crash?

Who Is Liable for a Multi-Car Crash?

Multi-vehicle collisions are one of the most fatal types of car accidents. Multi-car crashes occur like a chain reaction when a two-car collision impacts surrounding vehicles. Since many vehicles are impacted during a multi-car crash, it can be difficult to pinpoint who should be held responsible for the accident. Our Texas car accident attorneys explain how you can determine who should be liable if you were injured in a multi-car crash.

Determining Liability in a Multi-Car Crash

According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are almost two million multiple car accidents every year in the United States.

There are many reasons why a multi-car accident occurs. It can be as simple as a rear-end accident causing a chain reaction collision between multiple vehicles or as complex as a defective road.

Common multi-vehicle collisions occur because of the following:

  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Reckless driving and speeding
  • Driver fatigue
  • Bad weather conditions

There is no one answer to determine who was liable for your accident. Since multi-car crashes can occur for a variety of reasons, you should have an experienced car accident attorney analyze your case to help you determine who is at fault. Once your attorney identifies who is responsible for your injuries, you can file a claim to get compensation.
