Learn about 3 dangerous types of car crashes

There are many different kinds of car crashes, but three are extremely common. Those include rear-end collisions, T-bone crashes and head-on collisions. These are all dangerous kinds of crashes, because they involve a large amount of force.

In any case, if you are involved in a crash like one of these, it’s important to seek medical care. Here’s more about each one.

Rear-end crashes

Rear-end crashes happen when one driver doesn’t stop for the traffic ahead of them. They may follow too closely or not be paying attention.

T-bone collisions

T-bone crashes happen when one driver fails to stop at a red light and enters an intersection (generally). The vehicle then collides with the side of the other car that is traveling perpendicular to it as they try to enter the same space.

Head-on crashes

Head-on crashes tend to happen when one driver crosses the centerline into oncoming traffic. If they don’t correct their position quickly, other drivers may not be able to get out of the way and could be hit directly.

Each of these crashes has a large amount of force and can lead to serious injuries or deaths. It’s important for victims to know that they can pursue options such as a personal injury claim so that they can seek fair compensation for the injuries that they are left with and the damage that has been done to their vehicles. When other drivers make mistakes, it is only fair that they are held responsible for the collision they caused. Our website has more on what to do if you’re involved in a serious crash.
