One of the most complicated and most dangerous crashes to be involved in is a chain reaction accident. This is when a previous collision, causes another crash. Chain reaction accidents typically involve three or more vehicles. Many times, these accidents occur during bad weather conditions. During poor visibility or times when the road is slippery, (ice, rain, etc.) these accidents become more common and increasingly dangerous. If you were involved in a chain-reaction collision, you may have been hit by several vehicles, and the inherently chaotic nature of these crashes makes them difficult to resolve.
Who’s at Fault
With most accidents, the person who caused the impact is the one at fault. However, when more cars are introduced, the more complicated the case becomes. In chain-reaction crashes, more than one party might be held accountable. However, this depends greatly on the details of the collision(s). Hiring an experienced San Antonio accident attorney can help gather the needed information to determine who should is negligent. Once this is determined, the negligent party or parties will be responsible for the damages suffered. But what if you are partly responsible? In Texas, the state uses the legal concept of modified comparative fault. For personal injury claims, a person can still get compensation for an accident even if they are partially to blame for the crash. As long as you are found to be less than 51% responsible for the crash, you can receive some compensation for your damages.
