Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics

Car accidents in the U.S. are becoming a serious problem. According to the National Highway Traffic Administration, a car accident occurs every 60 seconds, which means approximately 5.25 million car accidents occur every year throughout the country.

Over 3,304 recorded fatal car accidents in California in 2017. These accidents are caused by various reasons, such as distracted driving, drunk driving, and driver over-fatigue.

Multi-vehicle collisions are just one type of this car accident. This type of crash usually involves three or more vehicles. A “chain-reaction commonly causes this type of accident,” wherein one car will bump into another, which will cause the other vehicle to crash into another one potentially. This type of accident can be more deadly and complicated.

Your damages are the losses that the negligent driver caused. There are many other losses you might suffer as a result of a car accident. Some of these (like auto repair bills) are easy to value. Others (like pain and suffering) are more difficult. Insurance companies are notorious for trying to devalue the losses that are hard to value. Here, too, it is important to take advice from a lawyer on your side who knows what your claim is actually worth.

Personal Injury Attorney for Victims of Multi-Vehicle Collisions in Los Angeles

Your personal injury claim starts by opening a claim with the other driver’s insurance company. If you choose to do this before hiring an attorney, be careful: the insurance company will likely ask you to make a recorded statement about how the accident occurred. This can be used against you later.

If you have an attorney, all communication must go through his or her office. This protects you from hurting your claim. This is why hiring an attorney for this process is essential.
