Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Florida
Many Floridians take to the road every day expecting to make it safely to their destination. These drivers use caution and drive safely. Then, unexpectedly they become involved in a multi-vehicle accident. These types of accidents often involve serious injuries and even death. If you are involved in a multi-vehicle accident, it is important you know your rights.
Cause of Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Florida
Multi-vehicle accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. Sometimes a driver is impatient and attempts to make a turn and is hit by oncoming traffic. This happened recently in Lehigh Acres and a little girl lost her life. Many times, an accident happens so quickly that other vehicles don’t have enough time to avoid it. In New Orleans, a firefighter was killed when a bus failed to stop for a previous accident.
Who Is To Blame in a Multi-Vehicle Accident?
Responsibility in a multi-vehicle accident can often be complicated and time-consuming. In the case of the bus accident in New Orleans, the driver of the bus claimed his brakes did not work. It took over 6 months for investigators to determine the bus driver was not telling the truth. In the Lehigh Acres accident, the impatient driver did not have his lights on when the accident took place. Every multi-vehicle accident has many factors that need to be taken into consideration. An expert attorney can help you navigate this difficult process.
Insurance Claims for Multi-Vehicle Accidents
Insurance claims can be challenging in any type of accident. Multi-vehicle accidents tend to have more parties filing claims as the result of the accident. These additional claims can create complications when you make your claim. Having an experienced attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve.
