A chain reaction motor vehicle accident is a series of collisions set off by one initial impact. It is very common that chain reaction car accidents are a series of rear-end collisions. They often begin when one vehicle strikes the back of another vehicle that is either stopped or slowing down. Chain reaction motor vehicle accidents involve at least three vehicles, but often involve many more.
Unfortunately, determining who is liable for a chain reaction car accident can be complex because oftentimes one driver claims another driver was the cause of the initial impact. Oftentimes more than one driver is found partially at-fault for a chain reaction accident. To further complicate matters, as is the case in the incident, multi-car accidents can yield severe personal injuries and devastating damage.
