Introducing Our Firm
Car accidents are relatively straightforward when they involve only two cars. But if you've been injured in a multi-vehicle accident, things can get tricky. When multiple cars are involved, it's much harder to figure out who was at fault or if, in fact, several people may have been at fault. Multiple people could have been injured in many cars. Sometimes the same driver can be injured multiple times as additional cars get involved in the crash and serial collisions occur. These types of chain reaction crashes not only increase your risk for injury; they also mean that any potential compensation could depend on a lengthy investigation involving several experts, witnesses and other drivers. This is not a situation that you should attempt to navigate on your own.

A Complex Crash Requires Investigation
When you've been injured in a crash, your lawyer's job is to secure compensation to help you pay medical bills and other expenses. This depends on your lawyer being able to demonstrate who was at fault for the accident; no easy task in the case of a multi-car pile up. At Hoyt & Hoyt, we work with accident reconstruction experts and others who can help determine exactly what happened in your crash and who is responsible for paying for the damages and injuries. Because of the potential severity of these types of crashes, this could be a significant sum, reflecting the cost of sometimes multiple and catastrophic injuries like head, neck and back injuries or sometimes even death.
Not only can there be multiple casualties from a multi-vehicle highway accident, but there can also be several contributing factors, for example:
- Inclement weather
- Low visibility
- Distracted drivers
- Mechanical malfunctions
And each driver who may bear partial responsibility for a multi-vehicle accident will likely have different types or levels of insurance to negotiate. Given the complexity and often high cost of a multi-vehicle crash, it's important to work with a lawyer who has deep experience with these kinds of cases.
