Determining Liability in Multi-Vehicle Accidents: Insights from a Car Accident Lawyer

Multi-vehicle accidents, commonly referred to as pile-ups, can be particularly complex when it comes to determining liability. With multiple parties involved, attributing fault can become a convoluted process. This is where the expertise of a car accident lawyer becomes invaluable. 

The Complexity of Multi-Vehicle Accidents

In an accident involving only two vehicles, determining who is at fault can be relatively straightforward. However, in a multi-vehicle accident, several drivers could potentially share the blame. Factors such as distracted driving, DUI/OUI, and uninsured/under-insured drivers can further complicate matters.

Understanding Comparative Negligence

Most states, including Massachusetts, operate under a system known as “comparative negligence.” This means that each driver’s liability for an accident is proportionate to their level of fault. A car accident lawyer can help you navigate this complex system and ensure that fault is accurately determined.
