How Can You Obtain Compensation After a Multi-Vehicle Accident?
The aftermath of an Arizona multi-vehicle accident can be much more complex in terms of damages as well as litigation than an accident where only two cars are involved. Injuries can affect many more people, the injuries can be severe, and there may be multiple parties holding some amount of responsibility for the accident. Unraveling all the entanglement of your accident is something that is best handled by professionals.
The Arizona automobile accident attorneys at ELG only handle personal injury cases and we don’t collect any fee unless we win your case. We strive to provide our clients with exceptional representation for injury-related matters. When you have been injured in a multi-vehicle car accident by a negligent party, give ELG a call and we can prepare the most effective legal strategies necessary to ensure you see a fair outcome in your case.
How is Fault Determined for Multi-Vehicle Accidents?
There are many factors that are taken into consideration when breaking down a multi-vehicle accident. Your Arizona serious injury attorney will look over all the details of your accident to figure out which drivers are responsible for causing the incident. Some of the actions your attorney will take include:
- Contacting all drivers involved in your accident and interviewing them.
- Carefully scrutinizing all available photo and video evidence of the accident.
- Through the use of the latest technology, our attorneys will recreate your accident experience.
- Collecting all witness contact information and connecting with them to get their detailed account of your accident.
- Reviewing footage from traffic cameras and red light cameras.
- Studying the damage done to your vehicle.
- Reviewing all information to determine if any drivers were behaving in a negligent way such as drunk driving, driving while distracted, or driving at excess speeds, for example.
Your attorney will gather all of the evidence possible to build a strong case for you and to fight aggressively on your behalf. In Arizona, even if you were held a portion of the fault for the accident, you are still able to recover a part of the final settlement amount. Arizona’s comparative negligence system allows for all parties the ability to recover costs as long as they aren’t deemed 100% responsible for an accident.
In a situation where you are found to hold some of the blame for the accident, your attorney will combat any claims which try to put a greater portion of fault on you than you own. Your attorney will defend your case and will do the negotiations with the insurance companies so that you walk away with a full, and fair settlement.
