When it comes to car accidents, there are a substantial amount of varying aspects that are taken into consideration. A vehicle’s speed, weight, size, and direction can all be a significant variable in the outcome of an accident. Certain types of car accidents can certainly be more detrimental than others and can play a significant role in your case. Whether you’re aware of it or not, certain accidents are more commonly associated with more serious injuries.
A rear-end collision is one of the most common types of car accidents. There are a number of factors that could have resulted in a rear end collision. Drivers who tailgate are notorious for these types of collisions, as they’re not leaving an adequate amount of space between their car and the car in front of them. Speeding is another common cause of these collisions, as driving at an increased speed requires a prolonged stop time. Distractions can also be the underlying cause in these types of accidents. Looking away from the road, to text or perhaps eat, can delay the driver from seeing brake lights in front of them, resulting in the driver striking the car in front of them. Rear-end collisions often result in a varying level of whiplash and soft-tissue injuries. While injuries may not be immediately visible to the eye, muscles are often strained, which can be very painful.
Another type of accident, a head-on collision, can result in more serious injuries. When cars are traveling in opposite directions, and collide into each other head on, the aftermath can be fatal. The impact of these types of car accidents is often more substantial due the force of each vehicle traveling at certain speeds. A head-on collision is most commonly the result of distractions. A driver can be preoccupied, and without paying attention to the road, can drift into the oncoming lane of traffic. Head-on collisions are also the result of drunk driving in increasing cases. A head-on collision can leave a driver with life-threatening injuries such a head injury, brain injury, spinal cord injury, or back injury. The force of the impact can result in broken bones, lacerations, and even the loss of a limn.
