Multi-vehicle accidents may involve only a few cars or several vehicles including enormous tractor-trailers. What may begin as an accident between two vehicles may escalate into many collisions that cause injuries and fatalities for numerous victims. Oftentimes, distracted driving, speeding, and failing to use caution while driving around an accident site may contribute to the possibility of other drivers engaging in a multi-vehicle accident.
