A Guide to Multi-Car Accidents in Florida

While any car accident can be a terrifying experience, it can be even more harrowing when more than two vehicles are involved. Multi-car accidents can cause severe injuries that require lengthy hospital stays or extended time off of work. These expenses can add up quickly, overwhelming victims and their families. 

If you have been injured in a multi-car accident in Florida, do not hesitate to contact an experienced Orlando car accident lawyer. At Wooten, Kimbrough, Damaso & Dennis, our seasoned car accident attorneys understand the complexities of Florida’s personal injury laws and are ready to guide you through every step of the legal process. When you trust us with your legal needs, we will advocate aggressively for your rights and interests. 


Determining Fault in a Multi-Car Accident

Every Florida driver owes others a duty of care to act safely and responsibly behind the wheel. The driver who breached their duty of care and caused the accident will likely bear responsibility. While determining which driver causes the domino effect of collisions in some cases is simple, the issue of liability is often complex. Every multi-car accident is unique, and investigators will likely need to thoroughly analyze what happened to determine who may be at fault.

After a multi-car accident, the drivers involved in the crash may point fingers at others and avoid taking any blame for the collision. To pursue compensation for the full extent of your injuries, you need an experienced car accident attorney on your side. At Wooten, Kimbrough, Damaso & Dennis, our attorneys can conduct an extensive investigation into your case to uncover the liable parties for your accident and help you achieve a favorable outcome for your claim. 


Possible Damages Available After a Florida Multi-Car Accident

You may experience severe physical, emotional, and financial consequences following a multi-car accident. If you suffered injuries due to another individual’s negligence, you deserve to recover compensation for the full extent of your injuries. Since Florida is a no-fault state, accident victims must first seek damages from their own insurance company. However, if your accident injuries are severe, you may have grounds to file a claim against the liable party. A few types of damages our attorneys may be able to help you recover through a personal injury claim include the following:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and earning potential
  • Loss of enjoyment in life
  • Significant disfigurement or disability
  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death

Shortly after your accident, you may be contacted by your insurance company and asked to sign a settlement offer. While many accident victims assume their insurance company has their best interests in mind, this is not always the case. The insurance company will often attempt to offer accident victims the smallest amount of compensation for their injuries and other losses. An experienced car accident attorney can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to fight for your rights and the total value of your claim.
