Multi-Vehicle Accidents

Written by Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton Injury Lawyer

Edmonton Multi-Vehicle Accident Lawyer

I am Joseph A. Nagy, an experienced Edmonton personal injury lawyer serving central and northern Alberta. I specialize in injuries from motor vehicle accidents, such as multi-vehicle accidents. We have probably all driven by the scenes of multi-vehicle accidents on our highways and city streets. The flashing lights of ambulances dealing with the injured remind us to drive safely.

Multi-vehicle accident cases are complex. It is not uncommon for the at fault party to have inadequate insurance coverage or no insurance coverage. Your injury lawyer will know all possible sources for financial recovery and the specific limitation periods during which you can file a claim against an SEF 44 insurer or notify the Administrator of the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims fund. The Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Act  and the SEF 44 Family Protection Endorsement should be interpreted by a qualified personal injury lawyer.

If you have been injured in a multiple vehicle accident, I can help you. Call (780) 760-4878 (HURT) or contact me, Joseph A. Nagy, to discuss the steps I can recommend to make certain your insurance company treats you fairly.

What Are Case File Examples of Multi-Vehicle Accidents?

Case File 1: A logging truck is unable to stop in time to avoid a collision with several vehicles on the highway. The vehicles had been stopped by the police due to an earlier serious accident, which had occurred on the highway ahead. Several people are injured and killed. The logging truck company carries only 2 million in liability insurance, but the injuries and damages of the injured parties exceed 3 million.

Case File 2: An intoxicated driver overtakes another vehicle on a yellow line. There is a collision with an oncoming vehicle. The oncoming vehicle collides with the vehicle driving behind the negligent driver causing serious injuries to the occupants – a family of 5, including 3 young children. The negligent driver is operating a stolen vehicle, flees the scene, and cannot be found.

What Are Common Causes of Multi-Vehicle Accidents?

The primary reason for rear end accidents is that the at-fault driver was following too close. But rear end collisions can have many causes:

  • driver fatigue
  • drug or alcohol impairment
  • distracted driving, such as texting
  • road rage
  • driving too fast
  • poor road conditions
  • bad weather.

What Are Insurable Limits for Multi-Vehicle Accidents?

Multi-vehicle highway accidents often involve serious injury to several people. The insurable limits of the at-fault party can be as low as $200,000 depending on the circumstances. Make sure you have an experienced and knowledgeable injury lawyer on your side.
