Dangers of Multi-Vehicle Collisions
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 25 million persons have died in vehicle related accidents since the first vehicular fatality in 1896. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that the leading cause of deaths among persons aged 3 to 33, is vehicle collisions. One of the more severe types of accidents which cause death and injury is a multi-vehicle accident. These accidents can be particularly severe, due to the number of persons involved and the high speeds that they often occur at. All manner of injuries from fractures to contusions up to a severe traumatic brain injury or paralysis can result when a multi-vehicle accident occurs. If you or a loved one has been involved in a multi-vehicle collision, we feel it is vital to retain an experienced San Francisco car accident lawyer, who may be able to assist you in receiving the compensation you now need.
A multi-vehicle accident or pile-up occurs frequently on our busy freeways. When vehicles are driving in a careless manner, at high speeds, it takes just one mistake to bring about a devastating chain of events. Often times a chain of accidents is caused simply by drivers not observing that a collision has occurred in front of them. What started as a simple fender-bender can end up in catastrophe. Multi-vehicle accidents can therefore become very complex to sort out. Thorough investigation and a study of law enforcement reports are necessary to a successful outcome in your case. Large numbers of witness interviews must often be sorted through to find the responsible parties in a multi-vehicle crash. Our dedicated and hard-working attorneys pride themselves on doing what it takes to get to the root causes of your car accident.
A recent study by the NHTSA cited distracted drivers as the main cause of automobile accidents. Distracted drivers include those looking at another accident that has occurred or drivers who are fatigued. Other activities that come under distracted driving are reading, adjusting a radio or CD player or even looking at scenery. More and more drivers who talk or text on cell phones are the cause of accidents. Drunk driving, speeding, aggressive driving and weather are all leading causes for collisions on our roads and freeways.
Depending on the property damage and injuries you have sustained, a multi-vehicle accident can have serious effects both now and in the future. You may be facing immediate medical costs, future medical and rehabilitation expenses, replacement of your vehicle and lost wages as a result of your accident. Multi-vehicle accidents can involve many lawyers, each asking for compensation for their clients. At the Pacific Attorney Group we feel it is important that you have someone to protect your rights and speak up for you.
