Types of Car Accidents

Rear-end Accidents: When one car hits another from behind, a rear-end accident has occurred. In most cases, the driver in the following vehicle did not brake quickly enough to avoid hitting the preceding car. Although some rear-end accidents are simply minor "fender benders," others can result in catastrophic car accident injuries.

Side Impact Collisions: A side impact accident occurs when a vehicle hits the side of another, either by "t-boning" the car, merging into the car's path of travel or losing control and hitting the vehicle at an angle. Many side impact car accidents in New York are caused by another driver's failure to yield or comply with stop signs and traffic signals.

Head-on Collisions: A head-on collision occurs when the front of a vehicle crashes into the front of another car or collides with a stationary object, such as a tree or guardrail. Head-on car accidents in New York often occur when a driver travels on a highway or one-way street in the wrong direction or falls asleep and enters a lane on the opposite side of the road.

Roll-over Accidents: A serious type of New York auto accident, a rollover occurs when a car flips over or rolls on its side. Although rollovers can result from head-on, rear-end or side-impact collisions, these accidents most commonly occur when a driver makes a sharp turn while speeding. Due to their height, SUVs and trucks are more susceptible to rollover accidents than other vehicles.
