If you have been injured, call The Bruning Law Firm for assistance today.

Common Causes of St. Louis Multi-Car Collisions

Though chain reaction and multiple car crashes can happen in a wide variety of ways, some of the most common causes are as follows:

  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Dangerous road hazards
  • Failing to yield
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Violating traffic laws or signals
  • Impaired drivers
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Defective brakes, tires, or other parts.

No matter what the initial cause of the accident may be, chain reactions have the potential to cause serious property damage and injuries to several different motorists, and all responsible parties should be held accountable.

Determining Liability in Multiple Vehicle Accidents in MO

You may believe that the driver of the car that initiated the chain reaction crash will automatically be held liable for the resulting losses. However, there are many other parties who may also be at least partially responsible. For example, if a pothole caused the first driver to lose control, the government entity responsible for road maintenance may be at fault. Additionally, if the driver of the second vehicle was not paying attention or was speeding and that negligence caused the collision with the next vehicle, the second driver should be held partially liable. Determining liability in multi-car accidents can be very complicated and can require extensive investigation.
