Multiple Party Car Collisions

December 2023

Multiple party car collisions require the appliation of complex legal concepts.  A personal injury lawyer must first assess the collision and apply the rules of the road to judge who should be assessed fault for causing the collision.  With many vehicles moving at one time, this assessment can involve different rules of the road applying to different vehicles.  If the parties cannot agree on an assessment of fault, a jury may be asked to answer the question and place fault on the different vehicles involved in the collision.  In certain cases, when a vehicle leaves the scene and is unidentified a factfinder can assess fault against a unknown vehicle.
