By William Chanfrau, Jr. on October 30, 2013

Multiple-Vehicle Auto Accidents vs. Single-Vehicle Auto AccidentsOur team of personal injury attorneys take all accidents seriously. We know that any injuries sustained can potentially have life-altering effects, sometimes changing the way you get around and the work you are able to do as well as limiting your overall quality of life. This is especially true when it comes to auto accidents. The sheer amount of force experienced in an auto accident is staggering, and recuperation can be costly and exhausting. This is why having skilled lawyers on your side can be so helpful.

The team at our law firm would like to take a few moments right now to consider the serious nature of single-vehicle and multiple vehicle auto accidents.

What are single-vehicle auto accidents?

Single-vehicle auto accidents are accidents that involve just one vehicle. These can happen while on the road with others or while a motorist is all alone on the road.

Common Causes of Single-Vehicle Auto Accidents

While drunk driving and failure to follow the rules of the road can contribute to single-vehicle auto accidents occurring, those are not the sole causes. Sometimes these kinds of accidents are caused by circumstances beyond a driver's control, such as:

  • Inclement weather
  • Poor road conditions
  • Bad traffic signals
  • Auto part defects
  • Vehicle malfunction
  • Poor vehicle maintenance

What are multi-vehicle auto accidnets?

Multiple-vehicle auto accidents refer to cases in which two or more vehicles are involved in a collision or incident of some kind. Our auto accident attorneys have been asked to assist in both single and multi-vehicle auto accident cases, whether they involve commuter vehicles, commercial vehicles, or mass transit.

Common Causes of Multi-Vehicle Auto Accidents

There are a wide range of things that can cause a multiple-vehicle auto accidents. In addition to the above causes of single-vehicle auto accidents, multi-vehicle auto accidents can be caused by:

  • Driver error
  • Failure to observe the right of way
  • Failure to signal while merging or turning
  • Speeding
  • Driver fatigue
  • Texting while driving

Are multi-vehicle accidents more serious?

Both single-vehicle and multiple-vehicle auto accidents can be serious, though when more vehicles are involved in an accident, the likelihood of serious injury and fatalities does increase. It's for this reason that you need to drive carefully and defensively and be wary of other motorists on the road.
