Why Do Multi-Vehicle Crashes Occur?
A multi-vehicle pileup occurs when three or more cars are involved in the same crash. These accidents have the potential to cause very serious injuries. Additionally, they often cause complex crashes that are difficult to sort out. At Caruso Law Offices, P.C., our Albuquerque car accident attorney can protect your rights and interests after a multi-vehicle pileup. Some of the most common causes of these accidents include:
- Chain reaction rear-end collisions;
- Crashes at busy intersections;
- Cross lane accidents; and
- Highway pileups.
Multi-vehicle accidents should always be reported to the police. An officer from the New Mexico State Police, Albuquerque Police Department, or another local law enforcement agency should be dispatched to help control the scene and document the wreck.
Sorting Out Liability After a Multi-Vehicle Collision
One of the primary challenges of dealing with a multi-vehicle pileup is figuring out who is liable for what damages. In many cases, two or more parties may have contributed to the same multi-vehicle crash. As New Mexico is a comparative fault state (Scott v. Rizzo, 634 P.2d 1234), each party to the accident will be held liable for the share of the resulting losses.
Multi-vehicle accidents should be investigated by an experienced Albuquerque car accident attorney. Our lawyers will collect evidence, conduct a comprehensive assessment of the crash, and determine who can be held responsible for your damages. In some cases, you may pursue a claim against multiple parties. In other cases, you may have to defend yourself against a finding of partial negligence.
Recovering Compensation for Your Injuries
With multiple potential defendants, multi-vehicle accident claims can be especially challenging. In some cases, insurance companies may try to point the finger at each other in order to escape their own liability. Albuquerque car accident attorney Mark Caruso will fight to make sure that you recover every dollar you deserve. We will make sure that insurers are held accountable. Financial compensation may be available for:
- Vehicle damage;
- Ambulance fees;
- Emergency room care;
- Medical expenses;
- Physical therapy;
- Mental health support;
- Lost wages;
- Loss of earning potential;
- Pain and suffering;
- Permanent disability; and
- Wrongful death.
