Multi-Vehicle Accidents in South Florida  

Even the best, most cautious driver may at some time be the at-fault driver in an  automobile accident. In even a simple accident, the insurance issues can get dizzyingly  complicated. One issue that comes up often, in the wake of an accident is “How will the  insurance company divide a liability limit between two people making claims against a  single at-fault driver from a single accident?” Below you’ll find an example of a typical  scenario involving multiple vehicles. 

Example: If your liability limit is $100,000 per accident and there are two  other cars involved in an accident you caused, how will each of those drivers’ claims be settled? The insurance company will give each claimant  a share of the limit of liability proportionate to his or her claim in relation to  the total of all claims submitted. To answer the specific question: If one  driver claims $60,000 in liability damages and the other claims $90,000, the  insurance company will give each a proportional part of the $100,000 limit,  $40,000 and $60,000 respectively. Each individual driver would have to sue  you directly for the rest of their claims.
