Common Types of Car Accidents
There are several types of car accidents. Each with their causes and injuries. Some of the more common car accidents are:
- Rear-end collisions. This accident occurs when one car crashes into the car in front of it. Rear-end collisions may be the result of sudden deceleration by the first car or sudden acceleration of the second. Injuries to the passengers in the front vehicle are usually worse than the rear car;
- Side-impact collisions, or T-bone collisions. These happen when the side of one vehicle gets hit by the front or rear of another vehicle or a fixed object. Vehicle damage and occupant injury are more likely to be severe on the impacted side in this type of crash;
- Sideswipes. These collisions result from two parallel cars touching and swiping each other. If neither driver loses control, there is potential for only cosmetic damage;
- Rollover. A rollover accident is when a vehicle flips over onto its side or roof. Rollovers are more common in sport utility vehicles (SUVs) or car with a higher center of gravity;
- Head-on collisions. Head-on collisions are when the front ends of two vehicles collide. These accidents are often fatal;
- Single car accidents. Only one vehicle strikes another object or a person; and
- Multi-vehicle collisions, or pile-ups. These are potentially deadly and occur on highways and freeways. Vehicles in a pile-up may take multiple hits. Drivers and passengers are in constant danger in a pile-up.
Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents happen every day in the United States and result in minor to life-threatening injuries. There are two groups of car accident injuries, impact injuries and penetrating injuries. Impact injuries result from blunt blows to the body, and penetrating injuries generally occur due to shattered glass or loose metal.
The most common injuries sustained in car accidents are:
- Brain and head injuries, including concussions and traumatic brain injury (TBI);
- Broken bones and fractures;
- Lacerations and bruises;
- Neck and back injuries, such as whiplash;
- Spinal injuries, including paralysis and herniated discs;
- Chest and abdominal injuries;
- Internal organ damage;
- Leg and knee injuries;
- Sprains and strains; and
- Psychological injuries, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Not all car accident injuries are outwardly visible. It is essential to see a physician for a thorough medical evaluation after an accident. Afterward, call the Hobbs car accident attorneys at The Fine Law Firm for a claim assessment.
