Types of Car Accidents
There are four primary types of car accidents: rear-end collisions, T-bone accidents, head-on collisions, and hit-and-run accidents.
- Rear-end collisions occur when one car hits another from behind
- T-bone accidents happen when a car hits the side of another vehicle at a 90-degree angle
- Head-on collisions are the most severe type of car accident, where two cars collide in a head-on collision
- A hit-and-run accident is when a driver leaves the accident scene without reporting it
If you've been involved in any of these types of accidents, contact Law Offices of Janica L. Campbell right away.
Common Causes of Car Accidents
Car accidents happen for various reasons. Common causes include distracted driving, speeding, driving under the influence, and reckless driving. Distracted driving includes texting, using a phone, and other activities that take the driver's attention off the road. Speeding reduces the driver's reaction time, while driving under the influence can impair their judgment and reaction time. Reckless driving includes making dangerous moves like changing lanes haphazardly, speeding, and ignoring traffic signs.
What to Do After a Car Accident
If you've been involved in a car accident, there are steps you should take immediately:
Report the Accident to the Police:
Call the police to report the accident. They will create an accident report, which contains important information about the accident.
Consider Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer:
A personal injury lawyer can guide you through the legal process and get you the justice you deserve.
Document the Accident Scene:
Take photographs of the accident scene, including the vehicles involved, any damage, and the surrounding area.
Exchange Insurance Information:
Exchange insurance information with the other driver involved in the accident.
Get Medical Attention:
The first priority after an accident is to seek medical attention, especially if anyone involved is injured.
