Carrollwood Multi-Vehicle Wreck Attorney
These wrecks are among the most complex kinds of car crash claims. Frequently, these wrecks are ping-pong wrecks. The force of a collision propels one vehicle into another one. Quite often, the force is so great that the other vehicle is travelling the opposite direction on the opposite side of the road. Other multi-vehicle wrecks are continual force collisions. That’s especially true in large truck accident claims. If drivers lose control of these massive vehicles, they could easily collide with several other cars before the trucks finally come to rest.
Regardless of the specific type of multi-vehicle wreck, the dedicated Carrollwood multi-vehicle wreck attorneys at Moore Law use roughly the same approach. We quickly evaluate your claim and identify all your legal options. Then, we collect evidence that supports your claim and refutes possible insurance company defenses. Then, once the case goes to court, we never stop fighting for you.
Car Crash Injuries
Today’s motor vehicles are so big and fast that the amount of force in a high-speed collision is almost unimaginable. No restraint system, however sophisticated, could possibly absorb all this force. That’s especially true in multi-vehicle collisions. Some common car crash injuries include:
- Whiplash: Multi-vehicle wrecks often involve unusual impact angles. These odd angles greatly enhance the possibility of whiplash. This head-neck injury is extremely difficult to diagnose and treat. If not addressed promptly and properly, whiplash could cause paralysis.
- Leg Injuries: Front seat occupants are especially susceptible to leg injuries. The force of an impact usually drives these victims toward the front of the vehicle. That’s usually the most solidly-built part of a car or truck. Broken legal bones often permanently impair mobility. Severe lacerations usually require extensive medical attention.
- Spine Injuries: Usually, back injuries are motion-related. The force of a multi-vehicle wreck usually knocks the spine out of alignment. Such injuries are not only very painful and difficult to treat. In many cases, they cause permanent paralysis. Furthermore, the future medical bills in a serious back injury case could exceed $5 million.
Generally, group health insurance providers refuse to cover these costs, for liability reasons. To help victims through these trying financial times, our Carrollwood multi-vehicle wreck lawyers usually connect victims with doctors who charge nothing upfront for their services.
Medical bills, and other accident-related bills, must be paid eventually. Furthermore, since the accident was not their fault, these victims deserve compensation for their noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. To obtain this compensation, victim/plaintiffs must prove negligence, or a lack of care, by a preponderance of the evidence, or more likely than not.
Negligence per se is basically a lack of statutory care. In Florida, most tortfeasors (negligent drivers) are presumptively liable for damages if they violate a safety law, like the speed limit law, and that violation substantially causes injury.
Ordinary negligence is basically a lack of care. Most drivers have a duty of reasonable care. They must drive defensively and obey the rules of the road. Most commercial operators have a duty of utmost care. They must take affirmative steps to avoid car wrecks.
Excessive speed, which was mentioned above, could also be an ordinary negligence issue. The posted speed limit is a presumptively reasonable speed under ideal conditions. If the sky is dark, the road is wet, or conditions are less than ideal, the duty of care requires motorists to slow down and use additional caution.
