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.
In the accident above, a pile-up wreck happened in a construction zone. When a construction zone accident occurs, the injuries to both drivers and workers can be catastrophic. From neck and back injuries to medical bills and loss of income, construction zone accidents can be stressful.
