5 Classes of Auto Accidents
5 Classes Of Auto Accidents
The five classes of auto accidents that happen could be devastating to your health, your loved ones’ well-being and your vehicle. No matter what type of car crash you may be involved in, the Anastopoulo Law Firm can assist you with resolving the problems that come with these accidents.
Rollover Auto Accidents
One of the scariest is when a car crashes because of a rollover. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration published a report and among many things outlined in the study are that most vehicle rollovers - 68% - involve only one car.
Another interesting fact from this study is that nearly half of the rollover crashes investigated involved one roof impact – meaning the vehicle rolled over one time. Finally, the majority of rollovers happen when the vehicle is on a roadside or divided traffic median.
Single Car Crash
If only one vehicle crashes, this is recorded as a single car crash. The most common ways for single auto crashes to occur are running off the road, hitting fallen debris, colliding with animals and as mentioned above, rollovers.
T-Bone Auto Accidents
One of the most dramatic crash scenes involves vehicles that are "T-boned" or hit on the side of the car. These accidents often happen in busy intersections. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), about 25% of these accident types are the cause of death for the vehicle occupants.
Rear End Collisions
Getting hit on the rear bumper is an extremely common auto accident. Typically, these are caused by the other driver not paying attention to her driving because she may be texting, talking on the phone, tailgating or driving in bad weather conditions. Many victims choose to get examined by a doctor, because these accidents can cause head and neck injuries.
Head On Car Crashes
Certainly, the most devastating auto accident you could be involved in is a head-on collision. The potential for injury is high, due to the impact of the two vehicles hitting hard, often at a speed that is above idle. Injuries suffered as a result of this crash type can take weeks or months to heal from. Head-on collisions can also be fatal.
No matter what type of automobile accident you're involved in, the Anastopoulo Law Firm can take the appropriate legal action to get you compensation for your injuries, loss of work and damaged vehicle.
