Who’s At Fault in a Chain Reaction Car Accident?
A car accident can happen in the blink of an eye. Sadly, no matter how safe you drive, little can protect you from suffering the consequences of a collision when someone else’s reckless driving is to blame.
Chain reaction car accidents are a good example of the potential complexity of a car accident. And if you’ve suffered injuries and/or property damages in one of these accidents, you’re likely wondering who can be held responsible.
Read on to learn more about liability in chain reaction car accidents and how a dedicated car accident lawyer can help you make a financial recovery.
Who Can Be Held Liable in an Accident?
A chain-reaction car accident can happen so quickly, it can be hard to know who’s even responsible.
And yes, while it’s true that you can receive financial compensation in Florida through the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance system, in order to recover a settlement that also includes money for severe injuries and emotional trauma, culpability becomes key.
Just because you’re not sure about the responsible party now, doesn’t mean they can’t be tracked down and served with a lawsuit.
An experienced attorney can take charge of your case by reviewing some of the most important evidence, including:
- Crash reports
- Physical evidence from the scene
- Accident pictures
- Witness testimony
- Expert opinion
- Private records, such as those held by trucking companies
Getting in a wreck can be tough enough, especially when you have injuries and medical bills to worry about. You don’t have to go it alone—a car accident attorney with experience litigating these types of cases can help.
Damages You Can Receive
The two main types of damages you can receive in a third-party car accident lawsuit are economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are financial losses like medical bills, lost income, and other specific money lost. On the other hand, non-economic damages can include intangible loss like:
- Pain and suffering
- Metal anguish
- Loss in quality of life
If you’ve suffered serious repercussions because of a car accident, let an experienced attorney help you maximize the amount of compensation available to you.
