Who is at Fault in a Albany Chain Reaction Vehicle Accident?

by William Mattar | May 6th, 2019

Chain reaction auto accidents generally require three or more vehicles. Who is at fault?

You Need a Lawyer

If you’ve been involved in a multi-vehicle crash, and you suspect you were hurt, it’s important that you retain the services of a professional personal injury lawyer. Your attorney can pursue a claim on your behalf against the driver or drivers that are responsible for your vehicle damage and injuries. Sorting through the responsibilities of all the drivers can be complex, however. A lawyer can help with that.

Insurance companies are interested in saving money. This means that each driver’s insurance company is interested in mitigating their own client’s responsibility and placing it onto the other drivers.

Pricing Responsibility in a Chain Reaction Accident

The driver or divers at fault for a chain reaction accident may be considered negligent.  Drivers that become involved in chain-reaction accidents may be considered negligent if they were following the car in front too closely or engaging in distracted driving that prevented them from taking safe action to avoid a collision.

If you’ve been involved in one of these accidents, it’s important that you retain services of a personal injury lawyer quickly, and allow them to investigate the accident on your behalf. This will protect you from having liability assigned to you and help you pursue a claim for damages against those drivers that were negligent.
