Common Scenarios Involving Multi-Vehicle Crashes

Multi-vehicle accidents can occur under many circumstances but tend to arise from initial two-vehicle collisions. The first crash then triggers secondary accidents, creating a chain reaction. Some scenarios that commonly lead to multi-vehicle accidents include:

  1. Rear-End Accidents: When one driver fails to stop on time and rear-ends the car in front, it can set off a chain of rear-enders, often involving several vehicles.
  2. Freeway on snowy fields
  3. Abrupt Slowdowns: Unexpected slowdowns or stops on the highway can quickly bring about a sequence of rear-end collisions.
  4. Lane-Departure Crashes: These include accidents where a driver neglects to stay in the proper lane of traffic. When a car drifts over the median, it can cause a head-on collision and lead to other cars crashing into the initial vehicles.
  5. Intersection Accidents: This type of accident usually occurs when a driver tries to beat the light or fails to yield the right of way at the intersection. Intersection collisions tend to result in further T-bone collisions and pile-ups.
  6. Upfront Negligence: If the car in front abruptly swerves into another lane without warning or unexpectedly stops in the middle of traffic without cause, it can cause an accident with cars from the side or behind.
  7. Typical Negligent Driving: Some multiple-car crashes start-off like any other accident, caused by negligence, such as reckless driving, speeding, driving under the influence, or being distracted behind the wheel.
  8. Inclement Weather: Bad weather conditions, particularly heavy rainfall, snow, fog, or excessive sun glare, can lead to multi-vehicle collisions.
  9. Road Debris: Wreckage from prior accidents, blown tires, spilled loads from trucks, or some other matter can cause cars to swerve, which creates the potential for a series of accidents.



Injuries From Multiple Vehicle Accidents

Multi-car accidents often involve several different impacts on a victim’s vehicle. These impacts may come from various angles and sides. For example, if a driver initially gets hit head-on, causing the car to spin, another car can easily crash into the side of the head-on collision. This can lead to additional jolts, crushing, and jarring, causing further injuries to drivers and passengers alike. Injuries resulting from multi-car accidents can be devastating and even fatal. Common injuries caused by multi-vehicle crashes include:

  1. Deep cuts or lacerations;
  2. Fractured and broken bones;
  3. Whiplash;
  4. Herniated discs;
  5. Neck and back injuries;
  6. Total paralysis;
  7. Severed limbs;
  8. Punctured lungs;
  9. Internal bleeding or organ damage;
  10. Permanent disfigurement
  11. Traumatic brain injury; and
  12. Severe emotional distress.

Liability In A Multi-Car Collisions

Determining liability in a multi-vehicle accident can be extremely challenging. Since numerous drivers are often involved, there may be countless conceivable causes and sources of liability. Even if a driver knows they caused the crash, they may claim that another driver was at fault. More than one party may share a portion of the blame. While one driver may have triggered the chain reaction, other motorists’ negligence may have further contributed to the accident and resulting injuries. Each driver involved may have a completely different version of what occurred. As a result, it often depends on the police, insurance companies, or even the court to determine who should be held liable.

Liability depends upon which act of negligence caused the crash and whether a particular victim’s injuries resulted from that negligence. Each party’s insurance company and their attorney may conduct an investigation. Nevertheless, you should not assume that the fault will accurately be assessed. The farther down the chain of the crash a victim gets, the greater chances of the negligent driver’s insurance company trying to reject their claim. Insurance companies often try to argue that injuries are too far removed for the negligent driver to have caused them. These types of accidents typically involve costly damage claims and are more likely to entail litigation than other car accidents. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s battle-tested team has a long track record of obtaining justice for victims of devastating multi-vehicle accidents.
