Types Of Vehicle Accidents

There are certain types of common vehicle accidents that repeat themselves due to the dangers of driving. Being aware of these patterns might help you avoid vehicle accidents.

The Most Common Types Of Vehicle Accidents In Texas Are:

 
  • Rear-End Collisions

The most common causes of rear-end collisions include distracted driving and following too closely. When a vehicle does not keep enough distance from the vehicle in front in heavy traffic, the rear driver may not have time or space to brake and avoid a collision if traffic ahead comes to a halt suddenly. Rear-end accidents may be caused by drowsiness, impairment, or distraction.

The rear driver is not always at blame for the accident, even though they are typically responsible. If the forward driver brakes suddenly in an active traffic lane or reverses without a cause, he or she may be at fault.

Injuries in rear-end collisions can range from minor to life-threatening. Even at low speeds, rear-end accident victims may suffer catastrophic injuries including fractured bones, neck injuries, and spinal cord damage.

  • Head-On Collisions

Head-on collisions, which account for just a fraction of all motor vehicle accidents, are among the most damaging. Because both cars are moving toward one another, the force of the collision is increased.

As a result, head-on collisions are much more deadly than other sorts of vehicle accidents.

Head-on collisions may result from distracted driving, drunk driving, fatigue behind the wheel, speeding, and other behaviors. Traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord damage are common injuries associated with head-on collisions.

  • Side-Impact Collisions

Side-impact collisions occur when a vehicle traveling in one direction collides with another moving in the opposite direction at an oblique angle. When the cars collide, they generally form a “T” shape.

Side-impact collisions are especially hazardous for people in the vehicle that is struck on the side. The sides of vehicles have less mass to absorb the impact of a collision than the front and rear ends of a car.

Side-impact accidents are frequently the result of drivers disregarding stop signs and signals, as well as yielding or stopping at intersections. A distracted, impaired, or reckless driver may cause a side-impact accident and be held liable for the injuries incurred by others in the event.

  • Sideswipe Accidents

Side-impact collisions occur when two or more vehicles are traveling parallel to one another and one vehicle collides with the other car’s side. Frequently, drivers who fail to glance in their blind spots before merging lanes or changing lanes cause side-impact collisions.

Sideswipe accidents are potentially fatal because the initial collision may send one or both vehicles spinning off the road or into other lanes of traffic. The automobiles might collide with other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, or roadside objects.

Side-swipe collisions may result in significant injuries, especially when there is a second impact after the initial accident. Whiplash, fractured bones, internal organ damage, spinal cord damage, head injuries, and traumatic brain injuries are some of the most frequent injuries. Collisions on the sideswipe are generally caused by driver negligence, speeding, carelessness, distraction, and intoxication.

  • Single-Vehicle Accidents

Single-vehicle accidents are quite frequent. Single-vehicle collisions usually occur when a vehicle collides with something on the roadway, such as a deer or dropped cargo. Single-vehicle incidents can occur when a danger causes the car to veer off the road, making it possible for it to strike a light pole, guard rail, or another obstruction.

The vehicle may roll over or fall into a ditch, depending on where the collision occurs. Despite only involving one car, these collisions can be deadly when the vehicle collides with a big or hefty item and is rolled over.

Single-vehicle accidents are typically the result of driving mistakes, such as drivers who take drugs or alcohol, suffer from fatigue, drive too fast, or have poor weather conditions. A single-vehicle accident might be the result of another person’s negligence, such as a poorly planned road work zone or reckless driving that leads to another motorist swerving and leaving the roadway to avoid colliding with the reckless driver.

  • Multi-Vehicle Accidents

Accidents involving three or more cars can be devastating. The involvement of numerous vehicles implies that additional persons might be harmed and extra insurance coverage may become available to pay compensation to the injured. Multi-vehicle crashes are frequently caused by a chain-reaction rear-end collision.

When a vehicle is sandwiched between two other vehicles, the passengers in the middle vehicle might suffer severe injuries.

Determining fault in multi-vehicle accidents may be tough. Insurance companies frequently attempt to shift the blame, but more than one driver may be responsible. If you’ve been injured in a multi-vehicle Accident in Texas, contact Accident Attorneys Of Texas for help.

  • Rollover Accidents

Rollovers occur in a variety of situations and are more likely to result in catastrophic injuries. Anyone who is inside the vehicle when it is flipped may be seriously harmed. Tankers, tanker trucks, and other vehicles carrying flammable substances can cause truck fires when they roll over. If the vehicle detonates, it might inflict additional injuries or be fatal if the fuel or goods inside catch fire.

A rollover accident might also result in the driver or passengers being ejected, resulting in severe injuries if they are hit. The following are some of the most common causes of rollover accidents: speeding, distracted driving, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, tired driving, traveling off road shoulder and other vehicles or objects pushing cars off the road.

  • Blind Spot Accidents

Not all drivers are required by law to inspect their blind spots before changing lanes or connecting, although many do so consistently. When drivers fail to check their blind spots, they risk colliding with another vehicle and causing a blind spot accident. This is one of the most typical reasons for sideswipe accidents.

Small cars and motorcycles can be hidden in the blind spot of a larger vehicle. Because of their smaller stature, they are particularly prone to side-swipe collisions. Large trucks have proportionally wider blind spots, making them a significant threat to other drivers on the road. Blind spot accidents may result in severe injuries if they are not addressed quickly enough.

  • Low-Speed Accidents

At low speeds, a 2,000-to-3,000-pound car or 5,000- to 6,000-pound SUV can produce a significant impact force. Regardless of the speed at which the vehicle that strikes them hits the ground, pedestrians and cyclists are in great danger.

The angle of impact is often more important than the speed of impact. Low-speed incidents can cause whiplash, crush injuries, neck and backaches, major bruising, fractured bones, and injuries to the head or face.

  • Merging Accidents

Merging into a congested lane of traffic might be tough for even seasoned drivers. It’s no surprise that merging incidents are all too common. If drivers attempt to merge into traffic without checking their blind spots, don’t keep up with the other traffic, or drive carelessly, they may cause an accident.

In certain cases, other drivers may cause merging accidents by speeding up to cut off someone attempting to merge on a highway. Merging accidents are more likely to occur at elevated speeds, thus the injuries sustained by drivers and other passengers are often serious.
