We have the skills, the resources, and the experience necessary to take even the most complex car accident cases. If you were injured in a multi-car accident, you can put your trust in us to protect you.
The difficulties of a chain-reaction car crash
The multi-car accident creates additional issues when it comes to personal injury lawsuits. This is because of an outdated law on the Maryland books called contributory negligence. In short, the law states that if you contribute in some way to the accident which caused your injuries, you may not be entitled to recover any damages. Often in a multi-car collision, the contributory negligence defense is asserted against those injured by the negligence of the driver who started the collision, with the allegation being that even though they did not start the chain reaction their actions after being struck made the chain reaction worse or they did not do enough to avoid hitting another vehicle after being hit by the first driver. The contributory negligence law hurts everyone involved, but is a particular problem for those who suffer severe and catastrophic injuries during the crash. A multi-car accident can result in:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Permanent scarring
- Internal bleeding and organ damage
- Loss of vision or hearing
