Types Of Car Accidents And Their Causes
Any car accident has the potential to change the lives of everyone involved in the accident, but some types of accidents are more dangerous than others. When the consequences of an accident can last a lifetime, you need to be sure the compensation you receive from your claim reflects the severity of your injuries and recovery process.
At Lindner Law, LLC, we have more than 45 years of experience representing clients throughout the Milwaukee and Appleton areas. Our extensive experience has taught us what to expect from various car accident types and what causes them. To help protect you from these accidents, here is what you should know about these crashes:
These motor vehicle accidents are most associated with whiplash injuries, but they can also cause traumatic brain injuries and other harm. In many cases, rear-end accidents are the result of distracted or speeding drivers.
When drivers lose control of their vehicle, either by distraction or intoxication, they may swerve into oncoming traffic and cause life-threatening injuries. The consequences of these accidents are often organ damage, lacerations, traumatic brain injuries and death.
Distracted Driving Accidents
Drivers who text and drive, eat and drive, update their GPS while driving, fiddle with the radio while driving or find any other reason to look away from the road are endangering themselves and everyone around them. These accidents can range from fender benders to fatal accidents.
Road Rage/Rage Driving
When a driver loses control of their emotions and lets their anger dictate their actions, they lose sight of their surroundings and stop focusing on the road. These accidents often come from high-speed driving or tailgating that comes with road rage.
Drivers who choose to get behind the wheel even after a few drinks pose a serious threat to everyone on the road. Drunk driving accidents can cause victims to suffer broken limbs, brain injuries, loss of bodily function and death.
When a car accident applies enough force to a vehicle, it may roll and even throw the driver or passengers out. Being ejected from a vehicle can cause injuries like road rash, paralysis, head injuries and death.
These accidents are commonly the result of a driver running through a stop sign or red light. Because these accidents can directly hit a driver, the victim may suffer from broken limbs, head injuries, crushed limbs and paralysis.
