Car Accidents Involving Multiple Vehicles

Accidents happen in a split second, coming out of nowhere and leaving victims traumatized and in pain. Nobody should have to cope with the consequences of a major car accident involving three, four, five or more cars. These serious crashes almost always happen on highways and interstates where the speed limit is over 55 mph. Fast moving cars clogging highways do not have time to stop to avoid crashing into cars in front of them. The results of a multiple car accident are often devastating and possibly fatal.

Traumatic head or brain injuries occur when a speeding vehicle rams into another car or highway guardrail. Even when secured by seat belts, drivers and passengers involved in a massive car pile-up can be thrown violently forward, hit their heads on the dashboard and receive life-threatening lacerations or concussions. These injuries typically require extensive treatment, surgery and lengthy recovery times. To help ease the financial stress of serious car crashes, your car accident attorney at William Mattar will represent your case against one or more negligent drivers. Obtaining the best result possible is our goal from the time we take your call.
