Causes of multiple motor vehicle crashes

Chain reaction accidents can be caused by poor visibility from fog, rain or snow. When vehicles are moving fast with limited visibility, it is a recipe for disaster. It seems like whenever there is severe weather you can count on hearing a news story of a multiple car pileup on a highway somewhere.

A multi-car pile-up is also more likely to occur in heavy traffic – especially if someone is speeding on the shoulder of the road or while entering or exiting a road. All it takes is one car to smash into another car in bumper-to-bumper traffic, and the next thing you know there are multiple cars involved.

Injuries resulting from chain reaction accidents

Any car accident can lead to an injury; an accident involving multiple cars can increase the severity of those injuries. Drivers and passengers involved in chain reaction car crashes could suffer:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Cracked skulls
  • Organ damage, including punctured lungs
  • Cuts, lacerations and bruises
  • Hearing or vision loss
  • Burns
  • Spinal cord damage

If the injuries are serious enough, they could necessitate the amputation of a limb, lead to partial or full paralysis or cause permanent brain damage. In the most tragic of circumstances, a multi-car pile-up could lead to the loss of your loved one.
