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.

Two deaths were reported, as well as two people injured, due to the pile-up accident above. It’s important to contact a car accident lawyer following a wreck that causes injuries and death.
