Chain reaction accidents are terrifying – and for good reason because they are extremely dangerous.
Also sometimes referred to as “pileups” or “multiple vehicle collisions,” the reason they are so treacherous is that in a blink, the entire roadway becomes essentially a giant obstacle course, and the threats to your safety are numerous. It’s this kind of confusion that often results in even more crashes. It’s not unheard of in these cases to see dozens of people injured or killed.
These cases are more complicated than other types because they usually involve:
- Multiple defendants
- Multiple insurance companies
- Victims competing against one another for a share of the limited amount of money
