Types of Car Accidents

  • Head-On Collisions : Head-on collisions are one of the most catastrophic accidents that individuals can face while in a vehicle. These incidents typically occur from negligent behavior, distracted driving, and fatigue. Texting while driving can also cause someone to stray out of their lane and right into oncoming traffic. Consequences usually associated with head-on collisions may include any or all of the following:
  • Rear-End Collisions: Another common type of car accident our firm handles is rear-end collisions. This type of accident results when one vehicle collides with another who is directly in front. Tailgating is most frequently associated with the causes of these sorts of collisions.
  • T-Bone Accidents: A T-bone accident involves one car crashing head-first into the side of another. If the victim is not properly secured – or if the crash is particularly violent – severe injury, paralysis, or death may occur. It is believed that drivers engaging in cell phone use and consequently blow through red lights at intersections are the leading cause of T-bone collisions.

Can I File a Claim if I Was the Passenger in an Accident?

Drivers and policyholders are not the only ones able to file claims and seek compensation after an accident. Passengers in an accident also have the right to file a claim if they have sustained any injuries, regardless of whether those injuries were caused by the driver of the vehicle they were in or the driver of another vehicle, or a third party who holds liability, such as an auto manufacturer or auto parts manufacturer.

If you are related to the driver of the vehicle you were in, your injuries may be covered under his or her car insurance policy. In cases where there is no relation, you may be able to file a claim against your driver's car insurance policy or the insurance policy of the other driver, provided that he or she can be proven liable for your injuries. These types of claims are known as third party claims. There are also instances when an individual may find it necessary to file a claim against multiple policies, if the coverage from one policy is not sufficient to cover his or her injuries and accident-related expenses.
