Pile-up crashes can happen at any time on a freeway, and the more traffic, the more risk of a pile-up injury accident. But who is liable for injuries in these accidents?
First responders had their hands full during the morning commute Thursday, April 30, 2020, when at least six cars piled into each other. Police had to close the southbound lanes of I-95 near the Betsy Ross Bridge to pull the cars to the side.
Police say that a 40-year-old woman was injured and was transported to the hospital. There is no word on how the accident started, but traffic cameras show at least 6 cars on the shoulder of the road most with damage to the front and or back of the vehicle.
With a multi-vehicle crash, there are multiple insurance companies involved in settling the claims, and each one is often going to try to point the finger of blame anywhere but on their client. This can be a problem, especially for those who are unrepresented by an attorney.
Who to blame in a multi-car pile-up crash is more difficult than it seems. Usually, there is more than one person to blame because each car is going to most likely be held responsible for the damage to the vehicle in front of them.
However, an injured individual might be a victim of multiple negligent parties.
