When being in a vehicle accident, no matter how severe, Kajioka & Associates, Attorneys at Law can help you get the compensation you deserve for medical bills, repairs, and other financial needs. Today, we at Kajioka & Associates, Attorneys at Law would like to share a few examples of the types of accidents that tend to cause the most injury, life changing, and fatal repercussions.
Types of Road Traffic Accidents
Head-On Collision Car Accident: These accidents, head-on crashes, need no introduction as they are the most traumatic. The Newtons 3rd Law: “for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction” makes a head-on collision prime example. The resulting impact will be comparable to the impact of a crash at 80 mph in the event two cars traveling toward one another, and are both traveling at 40 mph, crash. The considered most fatal on the list are head-on collisions.
Multiple Vehicle Collision Pile Ups: It is bad enough when two vehicles are involved in a collision, but pile-ups are even more upsetting. They typically occur when drivers do not notice or cannot avoid an accident happening in front or around them. Vehicles piling up on top of one another is the end result of this mayhem. Often, more hazards like flying debris, fires, or explosions are created making these accidents especially dangerous because it makes it more difficult for those involved in the accident to escape.
Car Rollover Accident: No matter a vehicle’s year, make and model, all vehicles can potentially rollover, however, larger vehicles such as vans, SUVs, and pick-up trucks are more vulnerable that smaller vehicles. Taking a fast, sharp turn, or overcorrecting from other hazards in the road frequently result in a rollover. Being involved in a rollover not only gives you less control over the vehicle, but it also makes escaping the vehicle a challenge and a danger for everyone still inside the vehicle.
T-Bone Car Crash: The shape that two vehicles make when the front of one hit the side of another creates a T-bone, hence the reason they are so named. Normally taking place in intersections, these side impact collisions are especially dangerous. The danger in this accident is due to the lesser protection when compared to what the front and back of the vehicle offer. The sides are an extremely vulnerable position to be hit because there is no engine or trunk space in-between you and the other car.
