It’s that time of year again: with icy roads and blowing snow, it seems like every other day we hear about a multi-vehicle pileup on our Canadian highways, freeways, and bridges.
The traffic disruptions alone are a nightmare, but what happens if you are one of the truly unfortunate motorists to get tangled up in one?
Common Questions After a Multi-Vehicle Collision
As a victim of a multiple vehicle collision, you will face many questions:
- Who should pay for my vehicle damage and compensate me for my injuries?
- What if I’m partly to blame for the crash?
- With so many people and vehicles involved, how can anyone figure out what happened?
- What if the at-fault driver doesn’t have enough insurance to cover everyone’s losses?
- What if this takes years to sort out… do I get nothing while I wait for resolution?
Understanding Your Legal Options After a Multi-Vehicle Collision
Robinson LLP’s experienced car accident lawyers have the knowledge and resources to guide you through these challenging issues towards resolution. We understand how the law works when more than one person shares the blame, and we have access to court-approved engineers who can help us reconstruct the accident if necessary.
Even when liability for a car crash is divided up, navigating through the payout of applicable insurance policies can be confusing. In addition to liability and collision coverages, SEF 44 “Family Protection Endorsements”, and even umbrella policies may apply. In some cases, we may also need to involve the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund, if one or more of the at-fault drivers doesn’t have insurance.
At Robinson LLP in Edmonton, Alberta, our auto accident lawyers know what the law expects of you, and we will work with you to protect your rights. Many innocent people make serious mistakes during the early stages of a personal injury claim that can be impossible to undo later. That’s why it is so important to get a lawyer on your side right away. Insurance companies act quickly, so should you.
