Haley Bianco: Its that time of the day now for “The Law & You.” Joining us virtually once again we have our attorneys Greg Fellerman and Ed Ciarimboli. So great to see you both.
Greg Fellerman: I’m glad my internets working.
Ed Ciarimboli: Oh, yes that’s it!
Greg: I got called out! My buddy John called me and he said, “Your internets terrible” right on Facebook.
Ed: Every time Greg Fellerman’s internet is spotty, you better put it on Facebook and call him out on it!
Greg: Alright, I upgraded. Thank you, John.
Haley: We’re all dealing with spotty internet at home as we work from our home offices. We all can relate to that! And we’re glad you’re helping us and our viewers with these questions. Let’s get to today’s from Gene in Scranton. Gene says, “ I was injured in a multi-car wreck. I was the first car stopped at a light and another car hit me, then another car hit that car that hit me. Hitting me again. My neck and back are hurt and I went to the hospital in an ambulance. Who is responsible for my injuries?”
Ed: Well, they’re both responsible. In this particular situation, both of those defendants are going to combine to produce that injury. Obviously the first collision that’s going to be one of the defendants in the case. The second collision, depending on the severity of that collision, may or may not have an impact on your injuries. You have to look at some of the dynamics of the crash as well. But they’re both ultimately going to be defendants in the case and then share responsibly for your injuries depending again on the severity of each of those impacts.
Greg: Yeah, these cases are great because you as the plaintiff did nothing wrong. So all you do is let the defendants point at each other who is more at fault, and eventually, it works itself out. But we usually end up suing everybody and let them kind of battle it out. Sometimes we have to bring in biomechanic people to try to determine but you know its really an easy case, to be honest with you. So give us a call and we can help you out with it.
