Thus, a consultation with a South Florida car accident lawyer can make sure you take the proper steps
In chain reaction accident cases, the big question is: Who is liable? With multiple vehicles involved in the crash, multiple drivers could potentially be at fault, and various other factors could potentially be to blame as well. Without the help of a chain reaction accident lawyer, you may not sue all of the potential pages.
What is a Chain Reaction Car Accident?
Most car accident occur between two vehicles. A chain reaction car accident occurs when three or more cars or trucks make contact with each other, usually triggered by an initial impact from one of the vehicles that causes that vehicle or another one to redirect into another vehicle.
Chain reaction car accidents are some of the most serious type of car accidents that occur. Most cars involved in chain reaction car accidents suffer impacts from different directions, causing the driver and passengers of the car to be whipped back and forth in different directions within the vehicle. However, because there are always several cars involved in a chain reaction car accident, determining who is at fault for causing the accident can be difficult.
Where are Chain Reaction Car Accidents Most Likely to Occur?
Most chain reaction car accidents occur on busy interstate highways, or at busy intersections. On interstate highways cars are usually travelling at high rates of speed. Any contact from another vehicle on a busy highway can cause the driver to lose control, veering or spinning into another lane of traffic. With cars and trucks traveling alongside you at high rates of speed, there is not much a vehicle along side you can do to avoid a car that veers or spins into its lane of traffic.
The same danger occurs in busy intersections. Busy intersections usually have vehicles traveling in many different directions, using the through lanes, turn lanes, and making U turns. Once two vehicles make contact in an accident, it is easy for one or both of the vehicles to get redirected into another vehicle waiting in the intersection.

Can I Make a Claim Against More Than One Vehicle Involved in a Chain Reaction Car Accident?
Yes. Florida is a comparative fault state meaning a jury can assign 100% fault to just one vehicle that causes an accident, or the fault can be distributed amongst all vehicles or drivers that caused or contributed to causing the accident. If you make a claim for your injuries, you need to make sure you make the claim against all drivers and vehicles that were at fault so that you can recover the full amount of your damages.
Recovering Financial Compensation from Multiple Parties After a Chain Reaction Accident with the Help of a Skilled Fort Lauderdale Car Accident Attorney
In some cases, one party (i.e. a negligent driver) will be solely responsible for causing a multi-vehicle collision. For example, if a distracted driver was traveling at high speed and rear-ended another vehicle, the driver of the vehicle that got rear-ended may have been helpless to avoid hitting the next car in line. However, oftentimes, the evidence will point to multiple parties sharing liability for a chain reaction accident. When this is the case, accident victims must file claims against all liable parties in order to fully recover their losses.
If multiple parties were at fault in your (or your family member’s) chain reaction accident, our attorneys will file all claims necessary in order to recover maximum compensation. We can file claims against drivers’ insurance companies, drivers’ employers, vehicle manufacturers and other parties as necessary. As your law firm, helping you fully recover is our sole priority, and we will do whatever it takes to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
