Car Accidents Involving Multiple Vehicles
While trying to collect on a claim when you are injured in an accident is difficult enough, multivehicle car accidents present possible additional legal hurdles to recovering the compensation you deserve. When two vehicles collide, determining which driver was at fault for the crash is generally straightforward. However, when three or more vehicles are involved in a collision, the insurance companies for the individual drivers will try to avoid responsibility by reasoning that the crash was a multivehicle accident. These situations usually involve a great deal of finger pointing, which can lead to significant delays in getting your car fixed and uncertainty as to who will pay your claim.
Helping Accident Victims Recover Compensation
The attorneys at Hirsch & Lyon Accident Law P.L.L.C. have extensive experience helping clients sort through the complications associated with multivehicle accidents. We understand that these situations are extremely frustrating, particularly for injured people who were clearly not at fault for the collision.
Hiring a lawyer as early on in the process as possible can be key to securing a faster resolution in complicated liability cases. When you work with us, a skilled Phoenix accident lawyer at our firm will launch a rapid investigation of your claim. We know that by interviewing witnesses and talking to the individual drivers, we can often prevent an insurance company from trying to claim a bogus defense in your case. Additionally, our attorneys are very adept at applying Arizona comparative negligence laws to assess the percentage of liability against each driver, which can go a long way in speeding up the settlement of your claim.
Be Very Careful of What You Say to the Insurance Company
As you may already know, speaking to an insurance company without the advice of qualified legal counsel can be a huge mistake. When you are involved in a multivehicle or any other kind of car accident in Arizona, you have no legal obligation to provide statements to the insurance companies. A rear-end collision is the most common type of multivehicle accident. If you have been injured in this kind of multivehicle car accident, the insurance adjusters will often ask you how many impacts you felt when collision occurred. It is important to know that your answer will determine how many different drivers will be at fault for the accident. While you should always be truthful, you need to be very careful what you say – your best bet is to always seek the advice of your lawyer before you answer any questions from an insurance adjuster.
