Accidents can happen on any roadway at any time of day or night and in any conditions. Regardless of the weather, the possibility of an accident always looms. No matter how careful a driver might be, no matter how diligent they are about keeping their eyes focused on the road, accidents can and will happen. Our San Bernardino multiple car collision attorneys know a serious accident can cause debilitating injuries and the medical bills to cover those injuries can be enormous. You also have to consider the amount of time that you would be out of work. The implication that a car accident can have on your finances is frightening to consider.
Why are there so many multiple car collisions in Southern California? It is quite easy to understand. The roads in San Bernardino & Riverside tend to have a lot of traffic. Accidents on highways can happen quickly, and many people are not able to react fast enough to avoid an accident that is happening right in front of them. The packed roadways increase the chance of a multiple car collision, and with more vehicles involved in the accident, the possibility of severe injuries increases.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration claims that there are over 6 million accidents each year. Those who have lived in Southern California for any length of time are certainly no strangers to seeing accidents along the roadways. Rarely can a week go by that you do not see some sort of fender bender or other accident along Southern California highways and roadways. Of course, many accidents are far more severe than a simple fender bender. Many accidents involve multiple cars.Negligent drivers are often at fault in these situations, but it is far more complicated than an accident involving only two vehicles. In fact, trying to determine who was at fault on your own, and then trying to get the insurance companies to pay for the injuries and damages can be all but impossible on your own. If there is more than one party at fault, it can be difficult to determine how to proceed. With all of the other factors that can affect the outcome of a case such as speed, weather, and the distance between cars it becomes a convoluted mess that most people are not going to be able to handle.
