Common car accidents and information
List of the most common types of vehicle accidents on the road
You Were Recently In A Car Accident. Now What Should You Do?
Symptoms after a car accident can cause you pain right away or may take days up to weeks to develop. Soft tissue ligaments, tendons, and muscles are over-stretched, strained, and sprained during an auto accident. These soft tissue injuries often will often take longer to heal than if you had broken bones. That is why it is so important to be examined after an accident. Without proper treatment, these types of injuries can develop into scar tissue and a lifetime of pain.
Even small fender-benders can cause injury to your neck and back. Numerous studies have documented that low speed collisions can cause injuries like whiplash, neck and shoulder pain, and back pain. If you have been in a small fender-bender and have mild pain, it’s important to consult with a doctor. Early treatment could make a big difference in preventing the pain from worsening or becoming a chronic problem.
Rear-End Car Accident
Rear-end car accidents are the most common type of auto accidents, happening all over the roads of Orange County everyday. Just drive down the 405-freeway and you will most likely witness this type of accident on any given day. The most common way a rear-end car accident occurs is when the automobile in front makes a sudden stop and the car behind in unable to stop in time, thereby causing a rear-end collision.
A side-impact, or T-bone collision, happens when one or more vehicles broadsides another. This type of car accident often happens when one driver doesn’t stop for a red light and collides into the side of another vehicle. These type of accidents can cause a vehicle to spin out-of-control or result in a rollover.
These type of accidents have the greatest potential for severe injury. Simply stated, a head-on collision is when the fronts of two cars collide with each other.
Rollover Car Accident
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 280,000 rollover accidents are reported each year. These type of accidents usually involve SUV’s, trucks, or minivans.
