Notably, when people think of vehicle crashes, they only imagine two vehicles. In reality, though, multi-vehicle collisions occur frequently. Statistics show that there were 81,012 multi-vehicle accidents in Arizona in 2020.
This means that Arizona has a very high rate of multi-vehicle crashes. So, if you ever get in a multi-car accident, it’ll be best to hire an attorney from Lebovitz Law Group.
What Are Multi-Vehicle Accidents?
This example is a chain-reaction accident. The force of the first collision usually determines the severity of the resulting accidents. Multi-vehicle accidents from rear-end collisions are more frequent during traffic stops. They also happen where vehicles are parked in a straight line. However, multi-vehicle collisions mustn’t always be chain reactions. Instead, several vehicles can get into crashes from different angles and causes.
What Happens After a Multi-Vehicle Accident in Arizona?
Establishing Liability in Arizona Multi-Vehicle Collisions
Responsible parties in Arizona multi-vehicle collisions usually were negligent. Therefore, you’ll have to establish the elements of negligence to recover any financial compensation. These include:
Duty of Care
Every driver must drive carefully to avoid endangering other road users. So, proving this point isn’t challenging.
Breach of Duty of Care
Next, you must show that the fault driver breached their duty of care while driving. This is where the pieces of evidence your attorney gathered become helpful. The lawyer will have to show the driver’s negligent action.
After showing that the driver was negligent, you must link their negligence to the crash. This is because, although a driver was careless, their carelessness may not be responsible for the accident. In such cases, they’ll get a traffic citation at most.
Finally, you must prove that the accident caused you some losses. These could be physical injuries or property damage. If you can’t link your losses to the crash, you’ll lose your right to compensation.
Relevant Evidence in Arizona Multi-Vehicle Collisions
- Eyewitness testimony
- CCTV camera footage
- Physical evidence from the accident scene
- Photographs of the crash site and damaged vehicles
- Police reports
How Long Do You Have to File a Multi-Vehicle Accident Claim?
You must file your accident lawsuit within based on this law. This statutory period applies to bodily injuries vehicular and property damage. Your time starts counting from the accident date. Therefore, suppose you miss this deadline. Then, you’ll most likely lose your right to compensation.
