Types of Vehicle Accidents
Representing Clients after Many Types of Traffic Accidents in Brandon, Florida
No two vehicle accidents are the same. Accidents can involve different types of vehicles, collisions involving different parts of the vehicles, different causes, and more. Each traffic accident claim will vary depending on the type of crash that occurred, who caused the accident, and the injuries that resulted. At Carman & Bevington, P.A., our attorneys have the skill and experience to handle all types of
While they are often called “fender-benders,” rear-end collisions can actually result in surprisingly serious injuries and damage. Many people suffer neck and back injuries, as well as concussions or soft tissue injuries. While the rear driver may be presumed responsible, this is not always the case, and we can evaluate who was at fault.
This type of crash regularly happens due to a wrong-way driver or a driver who crosses a double yellow line and into the path of oncoming vehicles. Both vehicles are often moving when they collide head-on, which means there can be substantial force upon impact. This type of accident is one of the most deadly.
A vehicle can roll over due to a collision with another car, due to high speeds on a turn, or if it gets “tripped” by hitting a curb or another object. Some vehicles are more susceptible to rollovers due to a high center of gravity, including semi-trucks, buses, 15-passenger vans, and some SUVs. Rollover crashes can be traumatizing and result in severe injuries.
Broadside or “T-bone”
A broadside collision is often called a “T-bone” since it involves the front of one vehicle crashing into the side of another. These crashes are common at intersections when a driver runs a red light, fails to properly yield, or makes a left turn with traffic coming. The sides of vehicles do not have as many protections (e.g., bumpers and crumple zones), so the motorists in the path of the collision are at risk for particularly serious injuries.
Phantom Driver Accidents
Not every multi-vehicle accident involves a collision, as some accidents occur due to “phantom vehicles.” These are vehicles that cause another car to crash but do not crash themselves. One example is one driver changes lanes and in doing so, runs another driver off the road. Even though the lane-changing vehicle didn’t crash, that driver may still be responsible for the accident. These accidents may require an uninsured motorist claim if the at-fault driver fails to stop.
Common Truck Accidents
There are also specific types of crashes that are unique to commercial truck crashes These include the following:
● Jackknife accidents - When the trailer of a semi-truck folds perpendicular to the tractor like a folding knife, often colliding with traffic in adjacent lanes.
● Runaway truck accidents - When a truck’s brakes overheat or fail, the driver may not be able to stop an 80,000-pound truck on a steep incline and may lose control.
● Underride collisions - When a small car behind a large truck gets lodged underneath the back of the truck’s trailer.
● Override collisions - When a large semi-truck drives onto the back of a smaller car in front of the truck.
