Multi-Vehicle Crash Statistics
Car accidents are sometimes life-altering and traumatic. Because of how universal cars are to our lives, drivers often forget just how dangerous they can become and that severe and even deadly car crashes can occur.
Every year, approximately 3 million people in the United States are injured due to car accidents. A whopping $75 billion of medical care costs and productivity losses was calculated in 2017 caused by car accidents.
Multi-vehicle collisions usually involve three or more vehicles. A “chain-reaction commonly causes this type of accident,” wherein one car will bump into another, which will cause the other vehicle to potentially crash into another one. These accidents commonly occur due to reckless drivers, speeding, drunk drivers, and distracted drivers.
