Common Types of Car Accidents

Among the types of car accident cases our lawyers are experienced at handling include (but are by no means limited to) those involving:

  • Head-on collisions – When the point of impact between two vehicles is at their front ends, the results can be devastating even if the vehicles were traveling at relatively low speeds. In fact, head-on collisions often result in catastrophic, if not life-threatening, injuries. In many cases, these collisions are the result of some type of driver negligence, such as driver impairment or distraction.
  • Rear-end collisions – As one of the most common types of auto accidents, rear-end collisions take place when one car slams into the back of another. Comprising about 1 in every 3 auto accidents, according to the NHTSA, rear-end collisions are also commonly caused by driver errors or carelessness, as they typically result from drivers tailgating, failing to pay attention to the changing driving conditions, etc.
  • Rollover accidents – Although rollovers are not common, when they do occur, they can be devastating—if not deadly. In fact, the NHTSA reports that rollovers, which only represent about 2% of all auto accident in the U.S., are responsible for nearly 35% of all traffic-related fatalities.
  • Hit-and-run accidents – Over the past few years, there has been an increase in hit-and-runs throughout the U.S. Although efforts can be made to try to identify and find the drivers responsible for causing hit-and-runs, there may be other options for compensation when the negligent drivers responsible for causing hit-and-runs cannot be tracked down. Call us for more information.
  • Distracted driving accidents – Entirely preventable, distracted driving accidents have also been increasing in recent years, particularly due to the dangerous practice of texting while driving. In fact, research has found that distracted driving can be just as risky and deadly as driving drunk.
  • Drunk or impaired driving accidents – Also completely preventable, drunk or impaired driving accidents injure more than 700 people and kill about 30 others every day in the U.S.
  • Backover car accidents – Often occurring in parking lots and driveways, backover auto accidents take about 6 lives every day in the U.S. and, over the course of a year, injure about 18,000 others. Oftentimes, these accidents are caused by driver inattention, distraction, or carelessness.
  • Aggressive driving accidents – Aggressive driving often involves motorists breaking traffic laws and putting others’ lives at risk. When aggressive drivers cause accidents, they can be held liable for breaking the law and harming victims.
