Common Types of Auto Accidents

Car accidents are, unfortunately, common. Whether you are in a major city or in a small rural area, accidents can happen anywhere and at any time.

Here are some of the most common types of motor vehicle accidents that occur throughout the country:

  • Rollover car accidents: Rollover car accidents are often catastrophic and, in many cases, deadly. They are typically caused by reckless driving, speeding, inclement weather, poor road conditions, and tire defects. The vehicle type also plays a role in these accidents. SUVs, for example, are more prone to rollovers than most other vehicles due to their higher center of gravity.
  • Rear-end accidents: When drivers suddenly accelerate, decelerate, or follow the vehicle ahead too closely, a rear-end accident can occur. It is one of the most common types of car accidents and, though they are not usually catastrophic, they frequently result in painful soft tissue injuries like whiplash.
  • Head-on accidents: Unlike rear-end collisions, accidents that occur head-on tend to be fatal.
  • Multi-vehicle collisions: We often think of car accidents involving two vehicles, but multi-vehicle accidents are also quite common and can result in severe injuries. Multi-vehicle collisions, which are also sometimes referred to as pile-ups, typically occur on highways or freeways. Given the number of parties that are involved, it can be challenging to determine fault in such cases, which is why having an experienced attorney is necessary.
  • Hit-and-run accidents: When an accident occurs, you must never leave the scene until certain protocols are followed first and a police report is filed. It is against the law to flee the scene of a car accident.
  • Sideswipe collisions: When two cars are parallel with one another and touch, the damages and injuries are usually not too severe. However, if a driver loses control of the vehicle during the accident, it could become substantially more dangerous.
  • T-bone accidents: These types of side-impact collisions can result in debilitating or fatal injuries, especially if it occurs at a high speed. T-bone accidents tend to be the result of speeding, drunk driving, or distracted driving.
  • Single-car accidents: Not all car accidents involve two or more vehicles. In some cases, accidents involving only one vehicle can occur. The causes of such accidents include poor weather conditions, inadequate road maintenance, and drunk driving.
