Can Multiple Victims File A Personal Injury Claim Against the Same At-Fault Driver?
In many car accidents, more than one person may have been left severely injured. In this kind of situation, there are several possible legal scenarios that may occur when victims choose to file a claim against the at-fault driver. One, a class action. In a class action claim, the victims will file their injury or damage claims against the at-fault driver through one process, and thus the awarded damages will also be distributed based on the agreement between victims beforehand. In another scenario, each victim will file an injury claim separately against the driver responsible.
