Fatal Phoenix car accident involves 3 vehicles, 2 dead

Three vehicles were recently involved in a terrible car accident that claimed the lives of two people. Two SUVs were involved in the crash; and other than that, very little is known about this crash.

Since there is not much to go on in this crash in terms of details, let's focus on a couple of elements of multi-vehicle accidents that are important for all Arizona residents to know. The first is that when numerous vehicles are involved in a wreck, it means that numerous people, numerous insurance companies and numerous policies are involved as well. It can be difficult to cut through all of these factors, especially if negligence is determined to play a role in the crash.

That's why consulting a personal injury attorney is so important in these types of car accidents. You want to ensure your rights are being upheld, and you also want to make sure that the insurance companies don't take advantage of you during this traumatic and stressful time.

Another aspect of these types of crashes is shared liability. When multiple cars are involved with a crash, there are often multiple triggers to the crash (in addition to multiple collisions between cars). Sorting all of this out can be difficult, and that's where shard liability comes in. Basically this concept splits the liability among all of the participants in the accident -- even a driver who was purely a victim in the crash has some liability (though it usually is comparatively low). Shared liability can be complex, so you will want to learn your legal options if you head to civil court.
