So your were hit from behind and pushed into the car in front of you.

You were the meat in the " Vancouver 3 car crash sandwich".

And you're thinking to yourself - " I was rearended. It's cut and dry".

Think again!

I see it all the time - ICBC alleges that the guy in the middle hit the car in front BEFORE he was hit from behind.

So what do you do?

How do you defend yourself against this type of tactical manuevering?

Here's a few tips to help you navigate this minefield.

The first thing to  look at is the damage to your vehicle. While it's not definitive, the fact that your rear is more damaged than your front will corroborate your version of events.

The second factor to be examined is what the driver of the vehicle at the front of your chain collision has to say. Does he/she say that they experienced two seperate impacts ( seperated by a few seconds) or does he/she tell a tale of one impact? Once again, this isn't the last word. But rather merely one "indicator".

Thirdly, in a case involving serious injuries/losses, you might want to consider retaining an engineer to examine all 3 vehicles involved in this crash. An engineer may be able to discover evidence based on the damage to the vehicles which supports your version of events.

And that's merely a taste of the type of factors you should be looking into.

Alright then, where you in the middle of a 3 car Vancouver car accident?

Are you interested in ensuring that ICBC doesn't succeed with an argument that you hit the car in front of you first?
