Multi-Vehicle Collisions in Orange County

Fighting For Compensation When Multiple Drivers Are Involved

Have you been injured in a multi-vehicle car accident? If you answered yes, you aren't alone! After all, this type of accident is by far the most common motor vehicle accident. Multi-vehicle accident happens far too often in the Orange County area. They can occur on freeways, on highways, on city streets, at intersections, in parking lots and in many other locations. When you are involved in such an accident, you should immediately speak to a car accident attorney.

Who Is At Fault In a Multiple Car Accident?

Determining fault when more than 2 cars are involved can be particularly difficult, and there can be a variety of factors that come into play. If you were injured in a multi-vehicle accidents, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages and injuries from multiple parties: an insurance provider, a negligent driver, and even a defective auto part manufacturer, all at once!

Determining who is really at fault will come down to what caused the accident, as well as what could have been done to prevent the accident from happening. This is where having a professional accident attorney on your side can help. Our team can investigate the crash and determine what the root causes were and who should be held responsible. We can also help fight to protect your right to compensation for your injuries.

Can Multiple Drivers Be at Fault?

Yes! In some cases multiple drivers may be at fault. For example, if you were driving down the road and had to brake suddenly to avoid some debris in the road, the car behind you is responsible for maintaining a safe following distance and stopping in time. The car behind him is responsible for the same.

If you brake suddenly and the driver behind you is distracted, they may brake too late and end up hitting your car. At the same time, maybe the driver behind them was following too closely and wasn't able to stop in time, resulting in a multi-car pileup and a lot of damage to you and your car. In situations like this, both drivers would hold a share of fault for the accident.

Who Is At Fault in a Chain-Reaction Car Accident?

Chain-reaction car accidents refer to accidents where one driver may be struck by another vehicle, which may force them into the car next to them. For example, if you were driving down the road and the car next to you swerved into your car, the inertia from the collision may force you out of your lane and cause you to collide with the car in the lane next to you.

In cases like this, determining liability can be tricky. However, in most clear-cut situations, the driver who caused the initial accident will most likely be responsible for the damages to both you and your car and the car and its passengers that you collided with.

  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”
