Understanding Your Rights and Learning Liability in a Multi-Car Crash in New Mexico
Determining liability in any type of car accident can be confusing, but if more than two vehicles are involved, it can make it even more difficult. Sometimes, more than two vehicles are involved in a car accident, making it difficult to determine just who caused the accident. Questions arise such as whether or not you played a part in the accident, if you’ll receive any compensation for any injuries you sustained or for any property damage that occurred as a result of the accident, as well as many other questions on how you will be able to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and for your conscious pain and suffering. Our experienced car accident lawyers in Albuquerque, NM explain liability in a multi-care crash in New Mexico and how you can recover compensation.
This is because multi-car crashes are more complicated than other types of motor vehicle crashes. This is because it is often difficult for insurance companies or police to determine liability, given that each driver has their own account of what happened.

When is it Considered to be a Multi-Vehicle Accident and Why do they Occur?
Any accident involving three cars or more is classified as a multi-vehicle accident. Cars, trucks, or commercial trucks may be involved. Multi-vehicle car accidents occur in New Mexico for a variety of reasons. The roadways of New Mexico are often very congested, with cars often following closely behind one another. This puts multiple drivers are risk because if one car collides with another and other cars are close behind, this can lead to a chain reaction of multiple cars colliding into the back of the car in front of them. Distracted driving also plays a part in multi-car accidents as people who are distracted are not paying attention to what other cars on the road are doing, which doesn’t allow them to avoid the accident.
Who is Liable in a Multi-Car Accident in New Mexico?
As mentioned above, determining liability can be difficult when there are multiple cars involved. However, generally speaking the first car that initiated the impact is held liable for the accident. However, the driver who initiated the impact is not always at fault or is only partially at fault. This is why it is recommended that anyone involved in a multi-car accident should speak with a car accident lawyer.
