Categories of Car Accidents

Single Vehicle Accidents – these types of car accidents can occur for a number or reasons. A driver may have dozed off while driving, or swerved out of the way of an animal or object in the road.

Multiple Car Accidents –When more than one car is involved there are many factors that could have caused the accident. Poor visibility caused by weather, inattention or reckless driving could cause an accident.

Head-On Collisions –victims of head-on collisions are lucky if they survive. Head on collisions is some of the most dangerous collisions due to the amount of damage they can inflict on both the drivers and their vehicles. Head on collisions typically occur on narrow two lane highways and are usually as a result of one driver attempting to pass another slower moving driver without enough time between oncoming cars.

Rollovers –When a car rolls over, it is typically as a result of speeding or taking a corner too hard. SUVs are typically the type of vehicle that rolls over due to their elevation off the ground.

T-Bone Collisions—When a driver suffers injury from a T-Bone accident it is usually due to one driver failing to yield to oncoming traffic when turning left or right. These types of accidents can also be extremely dangerous due to the oncoming traffic usually approaching at higher speeds.

Read-End Collisions- Rear end collisions typically occur due to one driver following too close behind another. Many rear end collisions occur at intersections and in parking lots.
