Multi-vehicle accidents, which are also known as “chain-reaction accidents” or “pile-ups,” occur when two or more vehicles, such as trucks, cars, motorcycles, and buses are involved in a wreck.

These types of situations frequently happen when bad weather is present (rain, snow, fog), when driving at high speeds in high-traffic situations, or when rubbernecking occurs. At the Voorhies Law Firm, our experienced legal team is dedicated to representing those individuals who have suffered severe injuries in multi-vehicle accidents.
Often, when a multi-accident occurs, everyone points a finger at everyone else. It is not as simple as to just blame the person who crashed into you. Rather, it is imperative to determine exactly whose negligent actions caused the accident to happen. If none of those involved come forward and admits being the cause of the accident, the only way in which to resolve the issue is, then, to file a lawsuit. Our New Orleans auto accident attorneys are committed to protecting your rights so that you can obtain the compensation that you deserve.
