A head-on collision is typically one of the most serious types of car accidents that a person may be involved in. The force of impact is often greater, as it will equal the combined force of the two vehicles. Because the front end of the car will sustain the brunt of the impact, the driver and front seat passenger may be at particular risk of trauma. Read more about head-on collisions…
Read-end collisions are the most common type of car accident in the U.S., usually caused by a driver who is following too closely behind another vehicle. This gives the rear driver insufficient time to slow down or stop in the event of a change in traffic or road conditions. Read more about rear-end collisions…
The sides of two or more vehicles may collide if a driver changes lanes directly into another driver.
