Any car accident has the potential to cause injury or death, but crashes involving three or more vehicles can be particularly devastating.
Known as multi-vehicle accidents or pile-ups, these dangerous collisions are often the result of a chain reaction, such as:
- A rear-end accident that pushes a car forward, causing it to crash into the vehicle ahead of it.
- A collision that pushes a vehicle into a neighboring lane, causing it to collide with other cars.
- Additional cars hitting crashed vehicles in the roadway.
As if the accident itself wasn't bad enough, the aftermath of a multi-car pile-up can be even more deadly. Crash victims may be trapped in their vehicles or injured—even killed—while trying to get out of the roadway or assist others. To make matters even worse, when accident survivors try to seek compensation for crash-related injuries and other losses, they may have a difficult time identifying the at-fault party.
If you were hurt or lost a loved one in a multi-vehicle collision, you need an experienced Georgia attorney to help you fight for compensation. You may be entitled to collect a financial recovery for medical expenses, property damages, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and other damages.
