Distracted Driving is defined as any time a driver is doing something that will take their attention away from the road. This can include things like talking or texting on a cell phone, eating and drinking, socializing with passengers, playing with the radio, using a navigation system or other heads up display, or any other activities that would take a driver’s full focus from safely operating the vehicle.

Distracted driving accidents in Passaic County, New Jersey, and indeed across the nation present an extremely serious and real danger, in fact in 2015, 3,477 people were killed and 391,000 were injured in the US alone as a result of distracted driving accidents.

Bloomfield, NJ Auto Accident Attorneys Discuss Complications with Multi-Vehicle Accidents

In a multi-vehicle accident, our Bloomfield auto accident attorneys may show that more than one party’s reckless or negligent actions led to the injurious accident. We will help our clients to file personal injury claims against all responsible parties on a case-by-case basis. From the claimant’s perspective, here a few scenarios.

  • Claimant was impacted by a collision which was the fault of multiple drivers, and none of the fault belongs to the claimant
  • Claimant was involved in a collision for which they were partially at fault. This situation is referred to as comparative negligence
  • Only one driver is at fault for an accident resulting in injuries and property damage to multiple vehicles, including the claimant
  • Multiple vehicles are involved, causing serious damage and injury which is not sufficiently covered by the insurance of the at fault driver(s)
  • A dangerous situation or hazardous environment led to the crash, and the property owner or manager may be held liable under premises liability statutes

Overall, any personal injury claim which involves multiple parties may complicate and even delay a successful settlement. Lean on our experience to guide you through the claims process, build a strong case, and help you recover the compensation that you need to secure your financial future.

Wayne Multi Vehicle Accident Lawyers Find Fault

Showing that an individual driver was liable for a highway pile-up is less common than one might think. Defendants will often try to push off blame onto the reckless behavior of other drivers even if they were not adhering to the rules of the road. Here is one possible example which shows the complexity multi-vehicle accident claims might have.

Driver A is over the legal limit for blood alcohol content and is legally drunk. They are in the rear of a pack of cars on the Garden State Parkway. Driver B is in front of Driver A and is tailgating Driver C. Driver B does not have their lights on despite poor visibility due to a thunderstorm. Driver C does not have their seatbelt on.

Driver A rear ends Driver B who in turn rear ends Driver C. All three individuals sustain serious injuries and property damage to their respective vehicles. At a glance, it may seem like Driver A would be entirely at fault, but every individual involved was breaking the law in some manner.

In New Jersey, complex multi-vehicle accidents fall under comparative negligence laws which assign a percentage of blame on each liable defendant. Even if you are partially at fault for a multi-vehicle accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
