Your Rights & Best Interests
car accidents involving only two vehicles are relatively straightforward, those involving
three or more are more complex. These collisions are known as multi-vehicle
accidents, also known as “chain-reaction accidents” or “pile-ups.”
Multi-vehicle accidents can be extremely dangerous since there is a greater
risk of serious injury with more vehicles involved. Furthermore, determining
who was to blame for the crash can be hotly contested.
If you have been injured in a multi-vehicle accident in Texas, the
Law Office of James M. Stanley is here to help you recover the compensation you deserve to pay for medical
expenses, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering. With more than four
decades of experience, our Fort Worth

through the complexities of your case.
Whose Fault Was the Chain Reaction?
The main issue in multi-vehicle accidents is who was at fault? Although
there are many cases where one driver was at fault, while there were some
cases where liability was shared.
Texas is considered a modified comparative fault state, which follows the
“51% Bar Rule.” This means that an injured party cannot recover
any damages if he or she is 51% or more at fault. However, the injured
party can recover if he or she is 50% or less at fault, but that recovery
would be reduced by its degree of fault.
