The complex investigation required in a multivehicle accident

When a collision occurs between two vehicles on Kentucky roadways, the cause of the accident may be evident. If you are involved in a multivehicle crash, finding the party liable for your injuries becomes more difficult. At Debra L. Broz, Attorneys at Law, PLC, we often represent individuals who have been injured in a car accident.

Accident reconstruction experts may be brought in to investigate large pile-up accidents. FindLaw states that the majority of these accidents are the culmination of several instances of negligence. The investigation often begins with the drivers at the front of the crash. You may be asked how many bumps you remember. This can indicate how many collisions occurred and can help determine the chain of events. 

Liability is dependent on how the accident happened. When more than one involved party is negligent, the amount of damages they recover depends on how much fault is theirs. For example, a driver found to be 25 percent at fault for the accident may recover only 75 percent of their losses. Each person involved will have a different view of what happened. The number of impacts on the vehicle and the direction they came from can also provide perspective.

The reconstruction specialists take driver and witness statements, collect information from the police reports and photographs of both the scene and damages to explain the sequence of events. When all of the facts are in, it is possible that several individuals are liable for your injuries and the loss of property. It may also turn out that no one can be held accountable.
