The driver of the Mazda was charged with failure to reduce speed, according to wect.com.

Chain reaction wrecks are some of the more complex forms of car accident cases that law firms handle. Not only is the damage far greater than if, let’s say, the two cars were involved in a fender-bender, but these wrecks usually put multiple lives at risk. It can also be extremely frustrating to deal with multiple insurance companies who are trying to avoid paying any damage claim. One company may drag their feet or delay communication until liability is finally assessed. The process can be further complicated if the at-fault driver does not have insurance or denies that they were at-fault. 

The injured victims should get in touch with a personal injury lawyer in North Carolina to determine their legal options. The apparent at-fault driver was already cited for failure to reduce speed, which is an indicator of liability in a personal injury claim
