Head-on Collisions

Head-on collisions are the most dangerous type of car accident and have the highest fatality rate across the nation. These occur when two cars traveling opposite directions run into each other going forward. Usually these involve the most force being transferred, which means they also have the highest rate of serious injuries.

Rear-End Collisions

Not quite as fatal as head-on collisions, but still extremely dangerous when it comes to injuries, rear-end collisions are when one vehicle collides with the back of another. These are frequently caused by front vehicle suddenly slowing down or stopping or the car behind accelerating too quickly. These are usually far more dangerous to the vehicle being impacted.

Side-Impact Collisions

These accidents are also known as “t-bone collisions” and occur when the front of one vehicle or a stationary object strikes the side of another vehicle. These carry an extremely high rate of injury and fatality for occupants of the struck vehicle due to the decreased amount of metal and safety features on the sides of vehicles.

Rollover Accidents

These occur when a vehicle flips onto its side or roof, usually caused by a high-speed turn. More often than not these are self-caused accidents, though could occur as a result of a side-impact collision. These also occur far more frequently in vehicles with a higher center of gravity, such as large trucks and SUVs.

Single-Car Accidents

Single-car accidents are accidents where only one vehicle is involved, such as a car striking a pole, fire hydrant, wall, or other obstacle. These can be caused by a wide variety of factors, such as unsafe road conditions, reckless driving, lack of visibility, and many other factors. The severity of injuries from these accidents can vary widely depending on things such as speed, impact location, and more.
