Multi-Vehicle Accidents in West Palm Beach
Multi-vehicle accidents, also known as chain-reaction accidents, are a common style of Florida car accident that is most often the result of tailgating, or one vehicle following too closely to another. Florida driving law states that drivers are required to keep a reasonable distance between themselves and other vehicles on the roadway at all times.
In the event that one vehicle tailgates another, any deceleration on the part of the first vehicle could easily cause the second vehicle to crash into its rear-end. The force of the resulting impact could be enough to propel that first vehicle into the rear-end of the vehicle in front of it, causing serious damage to multiple vehicles and multiple victims.
If you were recently injured in a Florida car accident, the law entitles you to certain legal rights, such as soliciting full financial compensation for your accident-related damages from the at-fault driver.
The exact monetary value of your personal injury claim hinges on multiple variables, like the nature and degree of your injuries, the length of your hospitalization, whether or not you need any ongoing medical treatment such as physical therapy, the length of time you were forced to miss work, and if you suffered any emotional trauma, like the death of a spouse.
These factors and many more will be taken into consideration when a fair amount of monetary compensation for your claim is being determined.
