Multi-Car Pile Ups

multicar accidentOne of the worst things you could experience while driving is a car accident, much less a multi-car pile-up. These have the potential of happening anywhere from the expressways to local roads and can leave you with a hefty medical bill and nowhere to turn. Pile-ups are most likely to occur when a driver is travelling closely behind you, and rams into your vehicle as you brake, causing the ensuing vehicles to “pile up.” Sprains, broken bones, bruises, and mental trauma can all come as of a result being the victim in a multi car pile-up and you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries.

Whether it be on the highway or local roads, multi-car pile-ups can occur anywhere at any time. High-speed car accidents have the potential of causing the most devastating pile-ups. When traveling on the highway at speeds that can exceed 80 miles per hour, one overcorrected drift can turn a normal commute into a nightmare. These accidents have the potential of injuring many people. This is especially true during peak hours or around major holidays when hundreds of commuters fill the roads.

Low-speed pile-ups may not have the same life-threatening results as high speed pile-ups, but are equally traumatizing. Common injuries from low-speed pile-ups include:

  • Whiplash
  • Spine Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Head Trauma

These are serious injuries and we suggest you have them looked over by a medical professional as soon as possible. If left untreated, these injuries may lead to permanent disabilities that can forever hinder your quality of living.
