Multiple Vehicle Accident Attorneys in Oregon
Multiple vehicle crashes can happen in the blink of an eye. Pile-up car accidents can be particularly severe and result in serious injury or death. At Johnson and Taylor, our personal injury lawyers have a proven record of success in handling these complex cases and are well-versed in determining car accident fault. We help injured car accident victims throughout Oregon recover the compensation they need to move on with their lives.
Types of Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Oregon
Typically, multiple-vehicle crashes happen when two vehicles collide and the cars behind them are unable to stop. These accidents are often caused by:
Rear-end crashes – Although many rear-end accidents are minor, they can set off a chain reaction which leads to a multi-car pileup. Following too closely, failing to pay attention to the road, and speeding often lead to serious rear-end crashes.
Construction or sudden stops on the highway – Making a sudden stop at a high speed on a freeway due to obstructions or stopped construction vehicles can also result in deadly multiple-vehicle crashes.
Accidents at intersections – Unfortunately, running stop signs, red lights, or failing to yield the right of way at an intersection are common causes of multiple-vehicle accidents. It can be challenging to sort out who is at fault in these situations. Our vehicle accident lawyers know how to collect vital evidence and put it all together to determine who is at fault.
Lane crossing – Veering into a lane of oncoming traffic is a common cause of fatal accidents. Drowsiness, distracted driving, reckless passing of other vehicles, and other factors are often involved in these types of multi-car accidents.
Our vehicle accident lawyers have successfully handled injury lawsuits in cases involving drunk drivers, distracted driving, drowsy driving, large trucks, speeding, inclement weather, and reckless driving.
Obtaining Compensation from Multiple Sources
It’s common for several insurers to be involved in multiple-vehicle crashes. When you’re trying to focus on your recovery, dealing with this can be a nightmare. Our personal injury lawyers identify all possible sources of compensation, pursue damages, handle all negotiations with insurance companies, and fight to help you recover maximum compensation for your injuries and losses.
Types of Damages in Multi-Car Accident Cases
Serious injuries and loss of life often occur in multiple-vehicle crashes. Lengthy hospital stays, surgeries, rehabilitation, and long-term care can put victims and their families in financial peril. Our vehicle accident attorneys work to help you recover damages such as:
- Past and future medical bills
- Wage loss and loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of companionship and consortium
If you have suffered the loss of a loved one in a multi-car accident, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim against any liable parties. Our personal injury lawyers thoroughly investigate your case and advise you of your options.
