COMMON TYPES OF CAR ACCIDENTS:
Rear Ended/Hit From Behind
One of the most common types of car accident is when one car hits another from behind, usually known as getting rear ended or rear ending someone. Often caused by distracted driving on the part of the rear driver when the front car stops, unfortunately these are increasing in frequency as more people text and drive. According to the NHTSA, roughly 87% of rear end crashes are the result of distracted driving
Head On Collision
Less common but highly deadly, head on car accidents account for just over 10% of all car crash fatalities despite being only 2% of total car accidents in the US, according to the NHTSA. When the force of one car going full speed hits another, going in the opposite direction full speed, serious injury and death are often the unfortunate result
Occurring as a result of one car running a red light or stop sign and hitting the other vehicle from the side, or from lane changes where the driver isn’t looking or is in a blind spot, these can be damaging to car doors and cause serious injuries to arms, legs and ribs, especially in a more serious impact.
Multi-Car/Chain Reaction Car Accident
In a large number of car accidents, the force of one car hitting another can cause the car being hit to run into other cars, potentially causing damage to multiple vehicles and more people.
Pedestrian Hit By Car
With no protection against the sheer size and speed of an oncoming vehicle, pedestrians are often sitting ducks when hit by cars. Despite the multitude of traffic laws put in place to protect pedestrians and bicyclists from getting hit by cars, the number of injuries in this type of car accident rose nearly 15%, from 61,000 in 2006 to 70,000 in 2015, while the number of pedestrian fatalities rose roughly 12%, from 4795 to 5376 during the same time period, according to the NHTSA
Parking Lot Accident
While the majority of parking lot accidents are minor, result in nothing more than a dent and an inconvenience, sometimes parking lot accidents can be devastating. This is especially true when a car strikes a pedestrian or is driving at excessively high speeds for a parking lot
Drunk Driving Accident
Drunk driving is against the law in every state, but it remains a problem on our roads. When people drive under the influence of alcohol, the result is often a car accident that leaves people injured. But recovering financial compensation can be more difficult than you think. A claim against a drunk driver might seem simple, especially if the driver was arrested. Don't be so sure. These drivers often deny responsibility and fight the charges. And insurance companies look for any reason to pay you as little as possible. They also have high-priced lawyers looking out for their best interests
TYPES OF INJURIES
Knee and Hip Injuries
Chest & Rib Injuries
Back and Spine Injuries
Serious cuts and bruises
