The Most Common Types of Car Accidents

There are more that 10 million car accidents each year, according to the National Safety Council. This a shocking but true statistic. Below are the most common types of car accidents.

Rear-End Collisions

When cars travel in close proximity to one another, the risk for a rear-end collision increases. Therefore, it is no surprise that rear-end collisions are common during times of high traffic. Rear-end collisions can cause minor injuries or to life-threatening injuries. It all depends on the severity of the accident.

Side Impact Collisions

Side impact collisions, also known as “T-bone” accidents occur when one car hits another car at a perpendicular angle. In these types of accidents, a car goes head first into the driver or passenger part of the other car. It is typical for both cars to experience major damage, and at least one person gets injured.

Head-On Collisions

Head on collisions are usually the most dangerous kind of auto accident. It involves two cars coming toward each other until they finally meet face to face. It is common for the drivers to experience very serious injuries.
