Pile-Ups and Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Los Angeles
Consult a Car Crash Attorney
A "pile-up" is a multi-vehicle accident that may involve numerous cars, most often occurring on high-capacity and high-speed roadways such as freeways or highways. Due to the speed involved and the number of vehicles that may be a part of a pile-up, the results may be deadly.

Fog, Rain and Weather Conditions Causing Los Angeles Pile-Ups
Low visibility is often a cause of pile-up accidents, as drivers will not see a pre-existing accident until it is too late to stop. In this way, a rear-end collision involving only two vehicles may turn into a pile-up that may involve ten or twenty vehicles. Fog and heavy rain decrease visibility, and rain and wind may make driving conditions dangerous even if visibility is fairly good. A pile-up may occur on a busy freeway even when weather is not an issue, as the number of cars traveling close together at high speeds may make it virtually impossible to avoid a collision if a car spins out of control, collides with the median or rear-ends another vehicle.
Determining fault in a pile-up may be difficult, but you will need to know who should be held responsible so you can recover the financial compensation you deserve. In working with accident reconstruction professionals and conducting a complete investigation, an attorney can work to determine how to file your insurance claim or lawsuit and then assist you in recovering the full worth of your claim.
