Plano Multi-Vehicle Accident and Pile-Up Attorney
Plano, Texas and Collin County, Texas both have their fair shares of motor vehicle accidents, and the majority of accidents involve two or more vehicles. Multi-vehicle accidents are also termed pile-ups, and many drivers and passengers can suffer serious bodily injuries during these crash events.
The legal team at the Law Office of Joel M. Vecchio, P.C. can stand up for you if you suffered personal injuries during a multi-vehicle accident. An experienced car accident attorney can help you determine which parties may be liable for your injuries, which can be particularly challenging in a pile-up case.
Multi-Vehicle Accidents Are Dangerous
The roads and highways of Plano and Collin County can be congested, as commuters, tourists, and commercial vehicles all use the highways in the Plano area every day. If one driver makes a mistake, it can cause many others to crash in a chain reaction.
Multi-vehicle accidents cause glass and metal to shatter, and multiple impacts can cause serious injuries to drivers and passengers. Those involved in multi-vehicle accidents often need emergency medical treatment and can even become temporarily or permanently disabled due to the severity of their injuries.
Pile-ups are also more likely to cause fatalities than two-car collisions. Many different vehicles can strike a single car or truck from many different areas, increasing the chance of serious traumatic injuries. These successive collisions might even cause gasoline and oil to leak out of a vehicle and ignite, leading to fires and explosions.
When multi-vehicle accidents occur on major highways, it can take extended periods of time for emergency personnel to arrive at the accident scene and rescue anyone who is trapped. These accidents are often so severe that they close down highways for hours while responders process the scene.
If you or a loved one suffered injuries during a multi-vehicle accident, contact the Law Office of Joel M. Vecchio, P.C. Our car accident attorney can help you determine which legal claims to file against which parties. Having the right legal representation will also mean that you will have the evidence you need to prove liability in this complex type of injury claim.
How Multi-Vehicle Collisions Happen
Multi-vehicle collisions often occur when many drivers are traveling in close proximity on a major highway. One vehicle can strike another and set off a chain reaction, during which many additional cars or trucks might bombard each other in quick succession.
Injured victims often do not know what caused a multi-vehicle accident, as the initial crash might happen in front of them, and they cannot stop in time to avoid the wreckage. Some causes of crashes might include:
- Distracted driving
- Tailgating or speeding
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Aggressive driving
- Driving while intoxicated
It is critical that your attorney determines who was at fault for your crash, so you can file the proper insurance claims.
