With thousands of drivers on Atlanta roads and highways every day, accidents are bound to happen.

The risk for injury increases, and the damage done to the vehicles is often overwhelming.

At Powell & Associates, our experienced car accident attorneys can help you sort through your case and receive the compensation you deserve. Contact us for a free consultation if you’ve been involved in a multi-vehicle crash.
Like accidents involving two vehicles, multi-car pileups can happen for a number of reasons. From drunk driving to dangerous road conditions, pileup accidents can have a variety of causes.
The most common causes include:
A multi-car accident often happens when one car is hit and that car hits the car in front or to the side of them, causing a chain reaction. Especially in dangerous weather conditions, it can be difficult to determine which driver is at fault. Before you know it, you could be stuck between two vehicles or in a ditch because of a driver several cars behind you.
No matter how careful you are on the road, multi-vehicle accidents can happen at any time. Whether you’re stopped at a red light or safely crossing an intersection, you are still at risk. Pileup accidents are different from two car accidents because multiple drivers could be at fault, and it is more difficult to determine who is liable.
Multi-car pileup accidents are more likely to happen in areas that are highly congested, like the city of Atlanta and surrounding areas including Buckhead, Marietta, Sandy Springs, and Roswell. When filing a claim, most of the confusion comes from determining which drivers contributed to the accident and which did not.
