In Florida, many car crashes involve three or more vehicles which are otherwise referred to as multi-vehicle accidents. When there are multiple vehicles involved in a car accident, there can be some confusion, challenges, and issues as to liability, responsibility, and insurance coverage. It should be noted that Florida is a comparative fault state. As such, an injury victim can pursue a claim or case for compensation for personal injuries against more than one person or driver. Fault can be apportioned to one or more drivers depending on the facts and circumstances of the case. It is important to find out early in the claim or case the available insurance coverage. If there are multiple claims presented on one insurance policy, the value of the claims may well exceed the available automobile accident or liability insurance coverage. Because of this, it is important for the injury victim and family to line up an experienced attorney for legal representation to protect and enforce the legal rights of the injury victim. Based in Jacksonville, Florida, David Wolf is a personal injury and automobile accident attorney who handles cases throughout the State of Florida.
There are a few matters that should be covered as the multi-vehicle accidents. It is very helpful to have a police report which will detail the vehicles and drivers involved in the crash. It will also in most cases assess fault against one or more drives. It should be noted that the police report, in most civil trials for personal injuries, is not admissible as evidence. This is referred to as the Florida Accident Report Privilege. As such, liability can be challenged by a driver even if that particular driver was issued a traffic citation as as result of the crash. It should also be noted that the value of a personal injury case does not begin or end with the assessment of liability or fault for the crash. An injury victim should seek out initial medical care and then follow up medical care to make sure that the injuries are properly treated and diagnosed by trained medical professionals.
