Pileup Accident Attorneys
A car and all its parts are designed and manufactured to keep you safe. Although you know anything can happen when you’re on the road, the last thing you expect when you climb in your vehicle is a tire blowout accident. Accidents that happen as the result of a tire blowout often occur without warning and cause serious injury or even death, such as the pile-up collision above.
Pileup accidents typically involve at least three vehicles, but sometimes more. A common scenario of this kind of accident happens when a speeding truck rear-ends a car stopped in traffic and pushes it into many other stopped cars, much like the situation above. Pileup collisions result in thousands in damages and many claims needed to be filed with insurance companies.
