Types of Car Accidents
Columbia & Charleston Car Accident Attorneys
When you drive or ride in a car, you place your life in the hands of many
other individuals. There are a number of situations that can lead to serious
injuries, especially in a
catastrophic accident. There are many people on the road who do not take driver safety seriously.
Typically, there are millions of car accidents each year as a result of
disregard for the law. Just as there are many reasons for getting in an
accident, there are many types of accidents that can occur. Road traffic
collisions can consist of one or more of the following types of accidents.
Four Main Categories
There are four main categories of car collisions. A
personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you through any of the following accidents:
When one car hits another from behind, this is considered a rear-end collision.
Some situations are caused by the driver in front making a sudden decision
or by the following driver not braking properly. These situations do not
often result insignificant damage, but can be very dangerous.
When two or more cars crash into the front of one another, this is called
a head-on collision. By nature, these are often extremely dangerous incidents.
Another possibility for a head-on crash is if one car collides into a
stationary object, such as a tree.
Side impact collisions take place when one vehicle hits the side of another
car. This can take place by "T-boning" one car or by the two
cars colliding at an angle. These accidents can be caused by a driver
making a sharp turn or another reckless act.
A rollover accident is when a car flips over or rolls onto its side. These
accidents can result from other types of collisions. When a driver makes
a sharp turn at a high speed, the car can flip.
