Winter usually brings its fair share of weather-related car accidents across the Northwest. With the coldest weather still expected over the next few weeks, we’ve already seen numerous multi-car pile-ups. We also know that a car accident involving multiple cars can happen to even the safest of drivers.
These pile-ups are often the result of a “chain reaction”. This typically occurs when several cars rear-end each other because of one person’s carelessness or unexpected conditions. This may be due to following too close, hitting icy slicks on roadways, or driving too fast for conditions. Distracted or aggressive driving may also cause hazardous driving conditions between multiple cars.
Multiple Car Accident Usually Means Multiple Injuries
Many innocent people, drivers, and passengers alike suffer unfortunate injuries and damages to body and property because of another’s negligence. In multicar accidents, multiple people and multiple injuries can make claims processes confusing. This becomes a source of great anxiety and stress for motorists dealing with it on their own.
When a massive collision involves several vehicles, trying to figure out fault for coverage claims can turn into a nightmare. It’s an exhausting process for investigators, witnesses, and victims alike. Investigations must consider extenuating circumstances and conditions, as well as determine if any negligent driving behaviors occurred. It’s no surprise when no one admits fault in multi-vehicle wrecks.
Law enforcement files police and accident reports, and yet, sometimes there is no definitive evidence to support the different accounts. Complications can arise when the accounts become a “he said/she said,”. However, the damages caused by multiple vehicles can corroborate everyone’s story.
