Making Sense Of Your Rights After A Multi-Car Accident
Sorting out liability and insurance issues in a multiple-car collision can be very complex. It is important to determine not only who is at fault but also which driver has enough insurance to pay for your damages.
At Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe, LLP, our attorneys offer a free initial consultation to explain your options and answer your questions if you have been injured in a multi-car pileup. With offices in Harrisburg and Enola, we represent people injured in accidents throughout central Pennsylvania.
Complex Issues That Come Up In These Cases
In a multiple-car collision, more than one driver may be at fault. While the accident may have been caused by someone several cars ahead of you, a person who plows into you from behind may also be at fault. Identifying all liable parties is important for several reasons:
- Fault is an important factor in determining whose insurance company will pay for your losses if you have suffered a serious injury.
- Many drivers carry only the minimum amount of liability insurance that is required by law, which is $15,000 for an injury suffered by a single person. If your injuries are serious, $15,000 will not go far in covering your damages.
One of the most important services an experienced personal injury lawyer can do for you is evaluate all potential sources of liability given the facts of your case and then pursue maximum compensation using our civil justice system.
Our law firm works with an investigator and experts who help us gather all of the information from the police and witnesses, reconstruct the accident, and identify all parties who may be liable.
