If you think emotionally surviving a car accident on your own which typically involves another driver, their insurance companies, your insurance companies and lawyers is an easy feat, you might not think the same of chain reaction collisions. Although, chain reaction accidents do not occur as often as two-party collisions, chain collisions involve many more parties and just as any other car accident, they can turn deadly. In fact, if you’re a car in the middle of a chain collision, no amount of safe driving may save you once it’s taking place. Fortunately, legal help exists.

The truth is that we can all fall victims to a chain reaction collision, regardless of our driving expertise and experience. For example, just in May of 2018 more than a dozen people were injured in a chain reaction collision on the 15 Freeway. Perhaps the worst of all times occurred in the 90’s between Los Angeles and San Francisco. This chain collision left 17 people dead and as many as 150 injured. More recently in 2014, a fiery crash killed a person and injured four more in North Hills, in the San Fernando Valley.
When involved in a chain reaction collision it is best to be informed. There are several ways a chain reaction collision can occur. Perhaps the first car stops at a stop sign or a red light and once the second car hits the first, a third and more cars may follow. Alternatively a car hits a second car in front of them and makes this second car hit a third car in front of it. In other cases the vehicle in the from suddenly changes lanes and breaks in what it’s known as a swoop. Unfortunately, not all situations are created equal and so some will be more difficult to prove than others. As always, in cases where an investigation is inconclusive, it’s best to have witnesses.
Do you really need a lawyer to represent you in a chain collision accident? It is likely that other parties in the chain reaction will get experienced attorneys to represent them and in such case it is likely that they will use their knowledge and experience to to advantage of you. Insurance companies can place you at fault and not provide you with a fair compensation for your physical and property damages, pain and suffering and medical expenses and/or any loss of wages you could experience. In short, if two party accidents can be complex enough, you will surely need an attorney to protect you in a chain reaction collision.
