Multi-Vehicle Collision Statistics
Multi-vehicle collisions are just one type of car accident. It usually involves 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 crash into another one potentially.
These accidents commonly occur due to reckless drivers, speeding, drunk drivers, and distracted drivers. According to the National Safety Council, an estimated 38,800 individuals lost their lives to car crashes. Additionally, another 4.4 million estimated individuals were injured severely enough to require medical attention.
After an accident, get medical attention as soon as possible. Keep in mind that some injuries might not be evident at the time. Any documentation showing that you received care right after the accident can significantly increase the value of your case. Healthcare providers can document how you are feeling and any symptoms or apparent injuries you experience.
