Multi-Vehicle Accidents in California
Due to the sheer volume of traffic that is routinely found on California’s roadways, multi-vehicle collisions are a common occurrence. Some of the majorly traveled highways in California have as many as eight lanes of traffic traveling in a single direction, 16 lanes in total. That’s huge and it leaves almost no margin for error with literally thousands of cars, motorcycles, and tractor-trailers all crammed in side by side. It only takes one driver who brakes suddenly or who decides to make an erratic lane change to potentially alter the lives of several different people forever. From a liability standpoint, these types of claims can be very tricky to handle. When multiple drivers are involved in an accident, the claims often require litigation in order to determine the cause of the accident and the various legal responsibilities of those involved,
