The 4 Most Dangerous Types Of Car Accidents

When it comes to car accidents, each one always has the possibility of being horrible, no matter how serious the damage that has been done to both cars may be, as well as how serious the injuries are; however, there are some that have the potential to be even more deadly than others. More specifically, car accidents as a result of high speed typically end in either serious injuries and/or deaths.

Here are the four most dangerous types of car accidents to make note of in order to ensure that you remain more aware of your overall driving habits, as well as help to save your own life.

Crashing into Objects Head-On

Single-vehicle accidents can often be as horrible as a collision between two vehicles. For instance, if a car ends up striking a pole while traveling at a speed of 60 miles per hour, the end result will be the car striking an object with no give whatsoever, thereby resulting in the car absorbing the majority of the impact.

Off-Road Collisions

This type of car accident is considered to be one of the deadliest. They involve single vehicles leaving the roadway and striking objects such as poles or concrete barriers, and they also account for approximately 31.7% of all fatal accidents and 16.1% of all accidents across the country. Generally, these types of accidents take place due to the following issues:

  • Over-corrections

  • Weather

  • Road conditions

  • Distracted driving

  • Drunk driving

Side Impact Collisions

Many vehicles contain both crumple zones and upper systems, which are designed to protect them from damage due to either a front or rear collision from another car. Unfortunately, this type of protection is not available on the side of a car, meaning that if two cars were to collide at an intersection, the one hit on the side would end up experiencing much more severe injuries, as well as a higher risk of death.

Head-On Collision with Another Car

This type of accident is considered to be the deadliest, regardless of how fast or slow both vehicles may be going at the time the accident took place. This means that, for instance, if two cars were traveling at 35 miles per hour each and they ended up hitting one another head-on, they would end up creating an impact that is equal to 70 miles per hour. So even though they would be moving at the actual speed limit, the resulting accident would see injuries similar to those suffered on an actual highway. The crashes can also result in the following:

  • Extensive property damage

  • Severe injuries

  • Death

Those who are victims of these types of serious car accidents should always seek immediate medical treatment first and foremost. Once they do so, it’s equally as important to then speak to a qualified Texas personal injury attorney such as those with Soileau Law Firm.

Regardless of the type of accident you may have been in, the injuries that you suffer can end up being extremely serious in nature. Injuries that end up resulting in damages that include rising medical bills, loss of employment wages, etc. can be easily dealt with by speaking with a Texas personal injury attorney with Soileau Law Firm.
