South Carolina Multi-Vehicle Accidents
About 12 percent of all car accidents are multi-vehicle or chain-reaction crashes involving three or more vehicles, according to the National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Study. Multi-vehicle crashes can be very dangerous. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that 40 percent of car accident fatalities in the U.S. occur in multiple-vehicle accidents. Serious injuries are also likely to result from these types of crashes.
Unfortunately, in multi-vehicle crashes, it can be difficult to determine exactly which driver or drivers was responsible for the crash and the resulting injuries or deaths. This can make it more difficult for people who are injured to recover compensation from the negligent driver who hurt them. At Joye Law Firm, we understand the complexities associated with multi-vehicle crashes, and we can help you if you or a loved one was injured in a pileup.
