Fort Lauderdale Multi-Vehicle Accidents Attorney

Let Our Skilled Lawyers Help

Multi-vehicle accidents involve more than two cars in a collision. They also tend to be more deadly. Most of them occur in high-capacity and high-speed areas, such as freeways. People on these types of highways tend to drive 65 MPH or higher, and many of them have the tendency to tailgate. If one person at the head of a long line of tailgating cars has to stop suddenly, each car is unlikely to have enough time to stop before striking the car ahead.

The particular danger of these accidents is that several cars can hit one car several times, potentially coming from different directions. While you may be protected from one crash with an airbag, there are no additional airbags to prevent you from hitting your head if there are 2, 3, or 4 further collisions. Each additional vehicle involved in the accident could also mean more dangerous debris and leaking gasoline. Likewise, if occupants of a crashed vehicle can’t get out of their car in the event of a fire, they could die of smoke inhalation.

Determining Liability

If two people get into a car crash, usually one or both drivers is at fault. In a multi-vehicle accident, it can be hard to tell who was at fault in the collision and who was merely harmed as a result of another’s negligence. Florida makes it a little easier by being a “no-fault” state, meaning each driver will use his or her insurance to pay for any injuries or damages, despite the fact the crash may have been caused by someone else.

However, if you or a passenger was permanently injured or disfigured by the accident, you can file a liability claim with the other driver’s insurance company. You could also pursue a personal injury lawsuit against that person.

Statute of Limitations

A statute of limitations sets a time limit on when you can file a particular kind of suit. For car accidents that cause personal injury and property damage, you have 4 years from the date of the collision to file. However, if you were injured by a government employee or vehicle, such as a city bus, you might have to file a “notice of claim” with the agency in charge of public transportation in your area. These claims usually have a significantly shorter window. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you file a claim and defend you in negotiations or in court if your claim is rejected.
