Were You Involved in a Multi-car Accident?
Filing a Claim for a Multi-Car Accident in Tallahassee?
Any personal injury
auto accident case can prove difficult to win. In accidents involving more than one
driver, the recovery of compensation can be far more complex. If you have
been injured in a multi-car incident, your claims for damages can easily
get mired down in working out who was at fault and the degree of responsibility
of each motorist. Determining whose insurance company will pay compensation
is a matter that should be addressed by a legal professional with a track
record of success. For the person who has suffered a severe
burn or other kind of injury, issues regarding paying for medical care and
treatment are extremely urgent. It is critical that you recover a fair
amount in a settlement, or it could place you and your family in a difficult

Even in situations that appear obvious, fair compensation can be fought
against by insurance companies. In a multi-car accident, it could require
extensive work to determine liability. We conduct on-site observations
and research regarding the accident scene. Our attorneys review and analyze
statements from witnesses plus reports from police officers who were present
at the scene. In many cases, we will be involved in initiating interviews
with various drivers and their insurance companies during the negotiations
about your compensation. There could be several drivers who were cited
in the accident, and this situation can add some complexity in assigning
responsibility for the accident and your injuries.
Our experience shows that it is vital to act fast in these cases, as it
could improve your opportunity to obtain fair compensation and damages
in a multiple car accident. It could not be more crucial to retain a committed
Tallahassee personal injury lawyer to protect your best interests.
Pure Comparative Fault in a Multi-Car Accident
Looking for an attorney for a car accident in Tallahassee? The complexity
of a multi-car accident is compounded by what is called the "pure
comparative fault" rule in our state. This personal injury rule permits
you to recover damages as an injured party, even if you are found to be
99% at fault. The amount you can claim is reduced by the degree you are
found to be responsible. Pure comparative fault makes it essential that
you have an experienced personal injury firm to assist you. In a multi-car
accident, insurers can quickly deny your claim if your case is not well
established and fully documented. Frequently, an insurance company will
attempt to shift the blame for an accident and put the focus onto other
insurers. It is important to your case that we begin our investigations
quickly. This avoids the possibility of physical evidence or witnesses
from being lost. By working on your case as soon as possible after the
accident, it will assist us to do a better job of finding out what occurred
and who was responsible.
Armed with this information, we then strive to put you in a position to
obtain a favorable outcome for your case.
