Multi-vehicle accidents involve more than two cars in a collision. They
also tend to be more deadly. Most of them occur in high-capacity and high-speed
areas, such as freeways. People on these types of highways tend to drive
65 MPH or higher, and many of them have the tendency to tailgate. If one
person at the head of a long line of tailgating cars has to stop suddenly,
each car is unlikely to have enough time to stop before striking the car ahead.
The particular danger of these accidents is that several cars can hit one
car several times, potentially coming from different directions. While
you may be protected from one crash with an airbag, there are no additional
airbags to prevent you from hitting your head if there are 2, 3, or 4
further collisions. Each additional vehicle involved in the accident could
also mean more dangerous debris and leaking gasoline. Likewise, if occupants
of a crashed vehicle can’t get out of their car in the event of
a fire, they could die of smoke inhalation.
If two people get into a car crash, usually one or both drivers is at fault.

injuries or damages, despite the fact the crash may have been caused by

the accident, you can file a liability claim with the other driver’s
insurance company. You could also pursue a personal injury lawsuit against
Statute of Limitations
A statute of limitations sets a time limit on when you can file a particular
kind of suit. For car accidents that cause personal injury and property
damage, you have 4 years from the date of the collision to file. However,
if you were injured by a government employee or vehicle, such as a city
bus, you might have to file a “notice of claim” with the agency
in charge of public transportation in your area. These claims usually
have a significantly shorter window. Contact an experienced
personal injury attorney who can help you file a claim and defend you in negotiations or in court
if your claim is rejected.
