Multiple car collisions create unique difficulties for victims and their families. Following a typical New Jersey car accident, injured victims may contact the insurance companies involved to sort out who is liable for the crash. After a multi-car collision, it is common for insurance companies to pass the blame or offer an inadequate settlement to the victims. It is in the best interest of injured victims or the family of the deceased New Jersey car crash victim to speak with an experienced New Jersey car accident attorney before accepting a settlement from an insurance company or even talking to one.
