While any car accident can be deadly, collisions involving multiple vehicles can be particularly devastating. As more vehicles become involved, especially at high speeds, drivers and passengers run the risk of being hit multiple times from multiple angles, resulting in debilitating injuries and thousands of dollars’ worth of property damage. To make matters worse, determining liability for large-scale pileups can be difficult for claims adjusters, prompting them to pay those involved as little as possible to accommodate for the uncertainty.

Common Causes of Multiple Car Pileups
According to data collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), roughly one out of every three traffic collisions in America involves more than two vehicles. While car accidents can be caused by a nearly endless number of contributing factors, large-scale collisions are frequently sparked by a single act of driver negligence. Even a slight tap of another car’s bumper at high speeds can cause a driver to lose control of their vehicle, snowballing into a potentially catastrophic pileup.
Multiple-vehicle collisions can be caused by any of the following:
- Driving at unsafe speeds
- Driving while distracted
- Failing to check blind spots
- Driving while under the influence
- Following too closely
- Running red lights
Through a utilization of state-of-the-art accident reconstruction techniques and an examination of the evidence surrounding your crash, our team of attorneys can help determine the cause of your collision and pursue civil action against those responsible. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to recover compensation for your lost wages, medical expenses, vehicle repairs, rehabilitation costs, and pain and suffering.
