Chain Reaction Accidents

In heavy traffic, one accident can lead to another . . . and then another. These chain reaction accidents often have devastating consequences; and, in most cases, those who suffer the most are those who have the least control.

If you were injured in a chain reaction accident, it is important that you seek legal representation. Even in two-vehicle collisions, the insurance companies will try to find excuses to deny victims’ claims for compensation. In multi-vehicle accidents, what typically happens is the insurance companies all point their fingers at each other, and the victims are left waiting helplessly without the money they need to move on. In order to protect your rights, you need an attorney who can get the insurance companies’ attention, and who has a proven track record of securing favorable results in complex car accident litigation.

Factors that Lead to Chain Reaction Accidents

When multiple vehicles collide in a chain reaction accident, there are numerous potential factors to consider for purposes of establishing liability. Was a single driver to blame? Or, could multiple drivers have acted differently and avoided – or at least mitigated – the accident? Was negligent driving the only factor? Or, could a road or vehicle defect have caused or contributed to the accident as well? When we investigate chain reaction accidents on behalf of our clients, we explore all potential causes and all potential sources of compensation.
