Types of Auto Accidents
Everyone can remember the first time they got behind the wheel and most everyone can also remember their first car accident. Accidents can happen due to almost any reason, but there are certain types of car accidents that are the most common, including:
When a vehicle flips onto its side or roof, it would be considered a rollover accident. These types of crashes may occur due to sharp turns, loss of vehicle control or a sideswipe collision.
This type of accident commonly occurs on two lane roads, however, the term may also be specifically used for fixed-object accidents such as a driver crashing into a tree or wall.
Rear-end collisions are the most common type of accident. According to data collected by insurance companies, about 30 percent of all claims involve rear-end accidents. Whiplash is a common result of this type of accident.
A T-bone or side-impact collision most frequently occurs at an intersection wherein a negligent driver failed to stop for a sign, signal or red light.
According to Texas and Louisiana laws, drivers must stop at the scene of an accident. Failing to stop to exchange information with the driver could result in criminal charges if the other individual was injured.
Getting adequate compensation if a driver was uninsured or underinsured can be extremely difficult. Simien & Simien can help you get the compensation you deserve if the driver who caused the collision lacked enough car insurance or did not have any at all.
