Pileup Accident Attorneys

Pileup accidents typically involve at least three vehicles, but sometimes more. A common scenario of this kind of accident happens when a vehicle fails to reduce speed and 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 need to be filed with insurance companies.

Thankfully, no deaths were reported due to the pile-up accident above. One person suffered unknown injuries due to the chain reaction wreck. It’s important to contact a personal injury lawyer following a wreck that causes injuries.
