Types of Car Accidents
Car accidents can occur in a variety of situations. They may happen due
to speeding or bumper-to-bumper traffic, but they can also happen on small
residential streets and in parking lots. How vehicles collide with vehicles,
objects, and pedestrians influence the resulting injuries.
The following are the common types of car accidents:
Rear-end collisions – They occur when one vehicle crashes into another from behind.
Rear-end collisions are typically caused by deceleration by car in front.
In other instances, the car behind is following too closely or accelerates
at a higher speed than the car ahead.
Head-on collisions – They occur when the front ends of two vehicles crash into each other, typically
resulting in fatalities.
Side-impact/sideswipe collisions – Side-impact accidents – also known as “T-bone”
or “broadside” collisions occur when the side of the vehicle
is directly struck. On the other hand, sideswipe collisions happen when
two cars which are parallel to one another “swipes” each other.
Single-car accidents – They occur when a vehicle strikes an object, such as a tree, wall, pole,
or fire hydrant. In some cases, penetrations and other innocent bystanders
may be involved.
Multi-vehicle accidents – Also called “pile-ups” or “chain reaction collisions,”
they involve more than two vehicles. Liability can be difficult to determine
due to multiple parties being involved.
Hit-and-run accidents – This is where one driver flees the scene of the collision, which can make
proving liability and recovering damages from the at-fault party quite
Rollover accidents – A rollover happens when a vehicle flips over onto its side or roof. These
accident typically occur to cars with a high center of gravity, such as
SUVs and trucks.
Distracted driving accidents – They happen when a driver is performing another task while operating the
vehicle. This includes
texting, grooming, eating, and even changing radio stations.
Drunk driving accidents – They happen when an intoxicated driver crashes into another vehicle due
to alcohol impairment.
