A head-on collision, commonly referred to as a frontal crash, occurs when the front end of one vehicle hits the front end of another vehicle or stationary object. This kind of impact often occurs when one vehicle enters a lane on the opposite side of the street or enters a street from the wrong direction.
Side impact collisions -- more commonly called t-bone accidents -- can occur in a number of different traffic situations. And, depending on the circumstances of the crash, either the driver who was broadsided or the driver who did the broadsiding may be at fault. You could have been crossing an intersection with a green light and the other driver blew through a red when he hit you broadside.
A rear impact collision occurs when one car hits the car in front of it from behind. This impact could result in damages ranging from a minor fender bender to a complete totaling of both cars. The rear-impact collision is the most common type of automobile accident, and sadly its frequency is increasing with the use of cell phones and other driver distractions
A rollover is a type of vehicle crash in which a vehicle tips over onto its side or roof. Rollovers have a higher fatality rate than other types of vehicle collisions.
A serious automobile accident is a traumatic experience that nobody wants to imagine occurring. Did you know single vehicle accidents where the occupant received injuries disproportionate to the severity of the accident can often be traced back to a defect? Single vehicle accident investigations have revealed product liability cases involving fuel-fed fires, roof crush in rollover crashes, seat belt failure, seat defects, tire blowouts, door latch failure, and vehicle occupant ejection.
Our years of experience in investigating automobile accidents have shown us that often times product liability claims are “hidden” in these accidents. It is critical that your attorney considers the possibilities so that no claim gets overlooked. If there are injuries that are disproportionate to the severity of the accident, a product liability claim should be considered. Call us and let us get the results you deserve.
