Sometimes, a single vehicle accident very quickly transforms into a multi-vehicle
accident, especially in high-traffic or high-speed areas. When the chain
of events happens too quickly, drivers don’t react quickly enough
to prevent themselves from crashing into another vehicle, road object,
etc. For example, if a driver is hit from behind, circumstances can lead
to a multi-vehicle pileup between 3 cars. These accidents always result
in catastrophic consequences due to the increased chances for injury,
damage, and devastation.
Multi-vehicle accidents are notoriously challenging when it comes to determining
fault as there are so many variables and factors the more people and cars
are involved. Another complication is possible discrepancies due to the
increased number of witnesses, passengers, and other drivers offering
a differing account of what happened. Therefore, key factors are used
to ensure the right people are held responsible for their part in the accident.
The following are important considerations in determining fault in a multi-vehicle
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Distracted driving, such as cell phone use
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Other negligence or misconduct
During the investigation process, drivers are quick to point the blame
at one another. Therefore, it is vital law enforcement arrives at the
scene as soon as possible so reports accurately reflect what actually happened.
