Multi-Car Accidents

Multi-Car Accidents

Baton Rouge Car Accident Attorney

Car accidents can be complicated. They become far more complicated when the number of drivers involved increases. These are known as multi-car accidents, or pileups, because they involve more than two damaged vehicles. Multi-car accidents are not only more difficult to deal with because there are more cars involved but also because determining fault can be far more challenging than in a two-car collision.

Multiple-vehicle collisions usually occur on roads with a high volume of traffic driving at high speeds. They can be some of the most dangerous types of car accidents simply due to the sheer magnitude of damage done. A multi-car accident likely begins between two vehicles but because of road conditions, other cars that are unable to react in time may also join the damage. The causes of multi-car accidents usually involve low-visibility, slippery roads, windy roads or driver inattention.

The problem of multi-car accidents does not conclude with the actual accident. In fact, matters become far more complicated in the aftermath as the drivers attempt to collect damages from the people responsible. The issue can become muddled when individual drivers attempt to place fault on each other. Typically, the easy thing would be to place blame on the car that collided from the back or the side but it is not that simple. There are a number of explanations possible for multi-car accidents, which is why making a successful claim without the assistance of a car accident attorney can be extremely difficult.

  • How will child support be calculated?
    Child support is calculated differently depending on the state one resides in, but the general factors taken into consideration by the court when calculating payments include:
    • the standard of living of the child prior to the divorce;
    • the ability to pay of the parent giving child support;
    • the specific needs of the child, including their food, clothing, and educational costs; and
    • the needs and income of the custodial parent (the parent with primary custody of the child).
  • Do I need a lawyer in a personal injury claim?
    • Insurance company studies show that those who have legal representation in their case recover an average of 3.5 times more than those who try to get the issue resolved on their own. Insurance companies do not like to pay out large settlements, and frequently move fast with an offer, within days of a car accident or other serious injury accident. If you accept this early offer, it can be a terrible mistake; you may later require more medical treatment, or not recover in the expected amount of time, or could experience complications. I will carefully evaluate your injury case and ensure that we are pursuing every type of damage that could be claimed in your case. It is very important that you have legal counsel that will protect your right to fair compensation, and I will fight for fair treatment for you and your family. A personal injury lawyer is imperative if you suffered serious injuries. I am a Louisiana attorney that is interested in helping your resolve these issues.

  • Should I take a settlement offer?

    It is never a good idea to settle an insurance claim before speaking with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney that has experience with injury accident cases. Insurance companies have tactics they use to deny claims, redirect fault, and withhold available compensation. An insurance claim can be a complicated process and insurance adjusters can be intimidating to accident victims. An insurance company may assert that the injuries are not as serious as claimed, and attempt to settle quickly for a low amount.

  • How much money can I expect in a settlement?
    Each personal injury accident is different and the worth of the injuries will depend on the circumstances of the accident and the severity of injuries and disability. Insurance companies have specific calculations they use when assigning a monetary value to the pain and suffering resulting a personal injury causing accident. The firm will protect your right to compensation and pursue legal action if necessary.

    Before settling an insurance claim, contact The Layfield Law Firm, LLC to review your case. They can zealously protect your right to fair and full compensation, and your case will be given the focus and priority it deserves.

  • Do I have to go to court in order to obtain a divorce?

    Filing divorce papers with a court is the only way you will obtain a legal separation from your spouse. This applies to any other form of legal separation, including a marriage annulment. Aside from the divorce decree itself, a court is able to assist in settling other matters related to divorce, which include child custody and the distribution of marital assets.
