Multi-Vehicle Auto AccidentsPrint Page
Every day, auto accidents take place in Denver and throughout the state of Colorado. Some of these accidents involve just a single vehicle. Single vehicle accidents may occur when an animal runs into the road or when a driver nods off and hits an embankment. Other vehicle accidents involve two vehicles and may occur as a result of speeding, failing to yield, or breaking the rules of the road, or a host of other causes. Some of the most deadly automobile accidents involve three or more vehicles that collide. These types of car wrecks are called multi-vehicle auto accidents.
Multi-vehicle auto accidents involving three or more vehicles can be especially complex because multiple parties are involved. If you are involved in a multi-vehicle crash, you need a knowledgeable legal advocate who is familiar with these specific types of crash situations. With more than two decades of experience, the Denver auto accident lawyers at Levine Law can help.
The Dangers of Multi-Vehicle Auto Accidents
Multi-vehicle accidents are most likely to occur when many cars are traveling in close proximity, such as in dense highway traffic conditions. These collisions typically occur when two cars collide and other cars have nowhere to go avoid the accident scene. What starts as a simple two-car wreck can quickly become a multi-car pileup.
Multi-vehicle accidents often occur due to:
- Rear-end collisions. When a car is hit, it can be pushed into the car in front of it. This can set off a domino reaction that escalates into a multi-vehicle crash.
- Accidents in high-traffic areas. When vehicles collide on a highway, there is often no way for other cars to escape hitting vehicles that have already collided in the road.
- Accidents in high-speed areas. Cars travelling at high speeds may be unable to stop when they encounter an accident on the road. They may run into the cars that have already collided, resulting in a multi-vehicle accident.
- Accidents in bad weather. When visibility is low, an auto accident is more likely to occur. Other drivers may not see the vehicles that have already collided, thus causing a pile-up.
These are just a few scenarios where multi-vehicle auto accidents are likely. Unfortunately, multi-car accidents can happen at any time and can result in many injuries and fatalities.

In a multi-vehicle collision, it can be difficult to determine who was responsible for causing the accident. Identifying the responsible parties is important in determining who should be held legally liable for any damages that arose as a result of the crash.
