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
When investigating a multivehicle crash, the following evidence can prove
to be incredibly useful:
Eyewitness testimonies: Relying on the statements of the drivers in a multivehicle 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 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 gold mine
of evidence to use to your advantage. You may need to speak with someone
at city hall to get that footage, though.
