What Causes Multi-Vehicle Accidents?
Every day thousands of people across the state and around the nation, are being seriously injured in car accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents and other types of vehicular accidents. In 2010 alone, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles reported that there were 0.85 fatality accidents for every 100 million miles travelled. Out of all the reported accidents in the state of New York in 2010, more than 4 percent were serious accident and 0.4 percent were fatal accidents.
In many instances, poor visibility and bad weather conditions on major roads, highways and freeways contribute to multi-vehicle accidents. While many would consider people take more precautions in situations like this, poor visibility along with driver distraction has been deemed responsible for a majority of multi-vehicle accidents. Texting while driving, drunk driving, and other distractions cause thousands of accidents in and around New York every year. Drivers on regular roads in and around the city are more susceptible to single vehicle car accidents or motorcycle accidents. It is the high speed vehicles travelling on freeways which tend to bring about “pile-ups” wherein even vehicles who were not involved in the original accident, can find themselves unable to stop in time to avoid a collision.
In multi-vehicle accidents it is extremely important that you consult with a personal injury attorney at our firm as soon as possible following your accident. This is because additional care must be taken, in multi-vehicle accidents, to determine which party or parties were responsible for the accident and gather all available evidence in order to file a claim or lawsuit. Insurance companies are quick to offer settlements in multi-vehicle accidents, or to take blame off the responsible party and lay blame on multiple parties in order to explain away their low settlement. Our attorneys understand how insurance companies operate, which is why we work diligently to gather all information, interview key witnesses, analyze accident and incident report, investigate the scene of the accident and more. Without first speaking with an attorney from our firm, we strongly advise you do not make any agreements or accept any settlement after a multi-vehicle accident. Let our firm negotiate and fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
