Can You File A Claim if You Were Involved in a Multi-Vehicle Crash?
Any person who was left injured or experienced financial loss due to a car crash can take legal action against the at-fault party. This also applies to multi-vehicle crash victims. If you happen to find yourself in such a situation, you can file a claim against the at-fault party directly, or against their auto insurance provider. However, you need to know that if you’re involved in a multi-vehicle crash, it is possible that the fault in causing the crash to occur will involve multiple parties. In such a situation, it is best to consult a lawyer first before choosing to pursue any legal action.
