More often than not, you have exercised all precautionary measures to ensure that you and your family are protected from other drivers and dangerous road conditions. But these dangers lurk without any warning and can cause severe damage and injury to you and your loved ones.
Car accidents can be caused by an array of factors such as the intentional or reckless actions of other drivers, negligence on the part of pedestrians, faulty vehicle performance due to either mechanical failure, faulty construction or design of the vehicle, road debris or other obstructions, or even a breach of safety precautions on the part of government agencies responsible for road design and environmental maintenance.
Traffic collisions can cause minor to very serious damage or injury to you or your property. Such injuries may include physical damage to your vehicle and/or other property, physical injury to you or your loved ones, temporary or even permanent disability, emotional distress, or even death.
The most common type of car accidents range from:
- Single-car collisions
- Multi-car pile ups
- Hit and run accidents
- Head-on collisions
- Side collisions resulting from a simple lane-change
- Rear-end collisions
- Severe car crashes resulting from DUI incident
Hit & Runs:
Hit and run accidents are typically the most complicated type of accidents and require substantial investigation. In most instances, the culpable party is unknown making it more difficult to track down the individual. The typical damage in these types of accidents is damage to your property, which can be costly. Insurance companies oftentimes require extensive information before covering damage in these types of accidents. Our dedicated lawyers work closely with a team of experts in determining and locating the responsible party and holding them accountable for any damages caused.
Rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accidents. Such collisions occur due to negligence on the part of a driver who may not be paying attention, may be following too closely from behind or speeding, or even due to unsafe weather conditions. These injuries can be severe and may be exacerbated by whiplash or more serious injuries as a result of the deployment of an air bag.
Side-collisions result from another driver misjudging a light change and/or speeding which impacts the side of your vehicle. Aside from serious damage to your vehicle, a side-collision will typically result in the deployment of air bags which may cause greater injuries. The range in injuries resulting from side-collisions can be minor, such as knee injuries, to more serious, such as spinal injury or even death.
Head-on collisions occur when a driver swerves into your lane from on-coming traffic. Unfortunately this type of accident is more common when dealing with drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or as a result of the driver falling asleep behind the wheel. The damages and injuries caused in these situations are the most severe. Such injuries range in disability, paralysis, or even death.
Aside from the obvious damage caused to your property, you may suffer from injuries requiring you to seek medical treatment. These medical treatments can last for several months, leading to extensive medical expenses; psychological trauma requiring on-going therapy; or even the loss of a loved one. You are entitled to compensation for your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and the loss of a loved one due to wrongful death.
