It is no surprise that multi-vehicle car accidents can be complicated when it comes to filing a personal injury claim on behalf of a victim involved in the collision. Indeed, there may be more than one at-fault party and several car insurance companies to deal with. Many times, multi-vehicle crashes involve heavier vehicles, including tractor-trailers like in the Green accident, as well as delivery trucks and 18-wheelers. Obtaining critical evidence immediately after the accident has happened, or as close as possible to when the crash occurred, is vital to any Florida personal injury or wrongful death claim. Moreover, there are statutes of limitations that apply to these cases – or the time frame during which a claim must be file to avoid a complete bar from recovery.

Common Multi-Vehicle Crash Injuries
Generally, there are certain types of injuries that are common to car accidents – whether multi-vehicle or single car crashes. These include:
- Neck and/or back injuries: These may include herniated discs, whiplash, sprains, strains, or spinal cord damage;
- Head and/or brain injuries: These may include concussions, internal bleeding, skull fractures, lacerations, or other traumatic brain injuries;
- Soft tissue injuries: When tendons, ligaments, or muscles are stretched or torn, soft tissue damage has likely occurred;
- Broken bones: This is common and can be quite painful, possibly requiring surgery and a long time to heal;
- Spinal injuries: Depending on the severity of the injury, spinal cord damage can result in loss of movement or loss of sensation in the lower extremities.
Beyond the above physical injuries, other harm that a car accident victim may suffer can also include psychiatric and emotional damage. This may include anxiety, depression, and post traumatic stress disorder.
