A multiple vehicle accident can happen in several different ways. It can range in size and severity, such as a three-care fender bender or a serious 20-care pileup on the interstate. For this reason, the causes of these accidents can vary. The accidents can be caused by:

  • Driving too fast
  • DUI/Drunk driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Failure to stop
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving too quickly for conditions, such as ice, snow or heavy rain
  • Distracted driving, such as texting or using a cell phone
  • Racing
  • Driving in fog

Whether it is a low-speed crash in rush hour bumper-to-bumper traffic or a high-speed crash on a busy highway, there still could be serious injuries and damage to vehicles. An experienced Melbourne attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Dealing with a Vehicle Pile Up

Dealing with a car accident no matter how many vehicles are involved can be stressful. It is important you stay safe throughout the process. After a car accident, do not leave the vehicle unless you know your surroundings are safe and that you are not injured. You do not want to stand in the way of traffic or be alone with other drivers in an unsafe neighborhood. There are other steps to take to ensure the accident is handled properly, including:

  • Call 911, the local police or both: You should call 911 as soon as possible in case other drivers are too injured to call. It is better to have multiple reports of an accident instead of no one being able to call. Also, you should render aid to others if necessary.
  • Gather information: Swap information with at least one of the other drivers at the scene. Be sure to make note of his or her name, contact information and insurance information. If there are any witnesses get their information as well. Once the police document the accident, record the case number for the incident.
  • Seek medical attention: Make sure you seek medical attention after a crash. Just because there is no sign of an injury at the crash site does not mean you are unharmed. It is important for your health and possible compensation that you have documentation of any injuries sustained in a crash.
