Types of Car Accidents 

The most common types of car accidents include:

  1. Collisions (Head-on)
    When you imagine a car accident, this is typically the first type that comes to mind. Head-on collisions are some of the most serious accidents in terms of injuries and are typically caused by speeding, negligent passing and/or disregard to red lights.
  2. Highway
    Due to higher speeds, accidents on the highway can have more dire consequences than accidents in more residential areas. A small impact at a fast pace can create a larger scale incident including more vehicles and significant injuries.
  3. Hit and Run
    A hit and run accident is one in which a driver hits a vehicle and then illegally flees the scene without exchanging any information. If identified, a hit and run driver can be criminally charged in addition to the civil case against them. If you are the victim of a hit and run it’s imperative to gather as much information about the other driver and vehicle to increase your chances of identifying them later on.
  4. Distracted Driving
    A distracted driver is one who is participating in an activity that takes their attention away from the road, such as eating, texting, emailing, searching through a bag or applying makeup. An accident caused by this kind of negligent driving is called a distracted driving accident.
  5. Fatal
    Everyday, approximately three people in Pennsylvania will lose their life to an automobile accident. If you have lost a family member in a vehicle accident, you may qualify for compensation. A qualified attorney can help you make sense of your options during this challenging time.
  6. Miscellaneous
    Other common vehicular accidents that often qualify for compensation include reckless driving, drunk driving, collisions due to environmental conditions (such as fog, rain, snow, view obstructions, or poor road/sign design), side impact accidents and rollovers.

Have you been in a car accident?

Not all car accidents require lawsuits. Some can be handled through insurance companies. However, it’s important to speak with an attorney immediately after the accident. Speaking to insurance adjusters right away is unwise. The insurance companies are not there to protect you. Their goal is to settle claims as cheaply as possible. If they get to you before your injuries have developed or before your treatment has been completed, they will undervalue your claim.

Our car accident lawyers have been vetted for their experience and success in maximizing settlements and verdicts for our clients. We take care of finding you the right attorney so you can focus on physical and emotional recovery.
