If you’ve been in a multi-car accident, it can be challenging to figure out who caused it. In a pileup, the person at the back of the line who cause the vehicles to collide is often considered fully responsible. However, sometimes multi-vehicle car accidents are more complicated and can involve hydroplaning, poor roadway conditions, drunk driving by involved parties, animals running across the road, and any number of other causes that could change the court’s view on who caused the accident.
Oklahoma uses a comparative fault system to divvy up fault for car accidents. If the court does not decide to assign 100% of the fault to a single driver, liability will be divided proportionally, along with financial responsibility for damages. Even if you are unfairly allocated responsibility in your accident, you will still be required to pay the corresponding portion of the cost and you may not be able to recover any damages at all. This is why it is crucial that you find qualified, reputable car accident attorneys to represent you in your case. Otherwise, you may lose thousands of dollars in damage payments or risk receiving meager compensation (or none at all).
