Multi-Car Accidents in Georgia Present Complex Litigation Issues


April 17, 2011

Any Georgia auto accident can lead to serious injuries, permanent disabilities and serious financial consequences, including lost wages and overwhelming medical bills. An accident victim who seeks compensation for their injuries must deal with the headaches associated with fighting with the other driver's insurance company, which may attempt to deny the claim or offer a ludicrous amount for your injuries.

These challenges and frustrations are compounded in a multi-car accident because there may be multiple causes, responsible parties and more importantly multiple insurance companies. Multi-car accidents often result from a chain-reaction, as drivers who come upon an existing auto accident are unable to respond in time to avert a multi-car pileup. If you are involved in a multi-car accident, the experienced multi-car accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates, Attorneys at Law, can investigate the causes of your accident, identify all responsible parties and negotiate with the myriad of insurance companies.

Georgia multi-car accidents often occur on the freeway at high rates of speed where bad weather, such as fog obscures the accident scene until it is too late for the driver to react and avoid a traffic collision. Because these multi-car collisions are more common at high rates of speed, they are also more likely to result in catastrophic injuries including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, broken or fractured extremities including arms, legs, wrists and ankles, torn ligaments and tendons and similar types of serious injuries. Given these serious types of injuries, it is especially important to have an experienced Georgia multi-car accident attorney when the insurance companies for the other drivers try to mitigate or avoid their client's liability by pointing the finger at other drivers.

Many people believe it does not matter who the court decides is at-fault in a multiple car collision as long as another driver is determined to be responsible for an accident victim's injuries. If all of the insurance companies attempt to prove that the responsible driver was the one with no insurance, however, it definitely matters. A judgement that finds the driver responsible is one without insurance or with minimal coverage may mean that you do not receive the full compensation you need and deserve. You should also consider that an uninsured driver also is more likely to have no attorney making it more likely that he or she is found liable. The best multi-car accident attorneys will be familiar with this "shell game" and will make sure to identify all potentially responsible parties and investigate their insurance coverage as well as other assets available to satisfy a multi-car accident claim.
