Question:

Who is responsible for a multi-vehicle car accident in Georgia?

Answer:

One thing that often confuses people that have been involved in a motor vehicle collision is who’s responsible when multiple vehicles are involved. In congested areas such as Metro Atlanta, car wrecks often involve more than two vehicles. The first thing to look for is who the responding officer found to be at fault for the wreck. Usually it is just one vehicle, and the responding officer will investigate and make that determination. While that determination is not binding upon a jury, it is certainly very persuasive evidence to have. In most situations, it will be one vehicle that caused a collision that then impacted another vehicle. In that situation, there is one at-fault party and two potential personal injury claimants.

It is important to, from the very beginning in those situations, have an attorney who can investigate the claim and preserve all of the necessary evidence to present that claim. It is not uncommon at all when multiple vehicles are involved for defendants or insurance companies to try to shift blame to one of the other parties. In that situation, it is imperative that you have an attorney who is experienced in handling and negotiating these claims. If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident where multiple parties were involved, please give us a call so we can help you determine the proper at-fault party and help you work through your claim.
