Determining Liability in Multivehicle Crashes
After being in a
traffic collision that involves multiple drivers, you will have multiple “suspects”
to investigate. Someone there caused the accident and they should be responsible
to pay for the resulting damages. It is also likely that more than one
person made a mistake that triggered the accident; in such a scenario,
liability should be split between them.
When investigating a multi-vehicle crash, the following evidence can prove
to be incredibly useful:
Eyewitness testimonies: Relying on the statements of the drivers in a multi-vehicle crash is not
ideal, as most will know that a great sum of money is on the line and
do what they can to stay away from liability. You will probably find more
honest accounts of what happened from people on the street and other drivers
who did not get hit.
Reports from responders: Police officers, firefighters, and paramedics that arrive on the scene
to help will represent neutral third-parties that are only interested
in peoples’ safety, not who is liable. With this said, you can gather
their official reports afterwards for what should prove to be an unbiased
recollection of what happened and who, if anyone, admitted liability.
Security cameras: Many multivehicle accidents occur at busy intersections that are monitored
at all times by security and traffic cameras. If you can access the feed
that was recording at the time of the collision, it could be a goldmine
of evidence to use to your advantage. You may need to speak with someone
at city hall to get that footage, though.
