Car Accident Attorney

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear that there’s been a car accident? Do you picture a fender bender or a head-on collision? A rollover or a sideswipe?

A lot of your mindset is going to be based on your own personal experience, but statistically speaking, there are certain types of car accidents that happen more frequently than others.

The most common type of car accident in the United States is the rear-end collision. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, rear-end collisions top the list as the most common type of car accident, and it’s easy to see why. Far too often a driver will be following too closely or not paying close enough attention to what is happening in front of them and ends up smacking into the back of the vehicle ahead of them. Though this type of accident can sound like a minor issue, it can result in serious injury, no matter what the speed of the striking vehicle. People who are seated in the struck vehicle often suffer whiplash and other spinal injuries. They can also strike their head on the windshield and suffer concussions or traumatic brain injuries, or those sitting in the back seat can be injured when they hit the back of the seat in front of them.

Following rear-end collisions, the other types of accidents that happen frequently include collisions at intersections such as those that occur when a vehicle is attempting to make a turn and is struck by a driver coming from the opposite direction, or being T-boned by a driver who fails to stop for a stop light or stop sign. These accidents are extremely dangerous: those who are in the vehicle who are struck are likely to suffer serious injury and may even die.

No matter what type of car accident a person is involved in, if an injury occurs it can be life-changing. Understanding your rights as an injured driver or passenger is essential to your being able to get the compensation you need to pay for your medical bills and other damages that you’ve suffered.
