Experienced Car Collision Lawyers
If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident, you need an experienced lawyer. Car accidents are one of the most common causes of injury and death in the United States. If you have suffered serious injuries, appropriate compensation for full recovery is necessary. The unfair business practices of many insurance companies make this process difficult and complex. Having a team of experienced attorneys on your side will give you the advantage you need to recover your compensation.
Traffic Collision Types and Causes
It’s important to know the difference between types and causes and how they can relate to your case. Traffic collisions can be classified by general types. Types of collision include
- Road Departures
- Rear End
- Side Collisions
Causes are typically defined as what contributed to the crash. A 1985 study by K. Rumar, using British and American crash reports as data, suggested 57% of crashes were due solely to driver factors, 27% to combined roadway and driver factors, 6% to combined vehicle and driver factors, 3% solely to roadway factors, 3% to combined roadway, driver, and vehicle factors, 2% solely to vehicle factors, and 1% to combined roadway and vehicle factors ((Harry Lum; Jerry A. Reagan Winter 1995. “Interactive Highway Safety Design Model: Accident Predictive Module”. Public Roads Magazine.)). Some of the most common causes are
- Human factors
- Motor vehicle speed
- Driver impairment
- Physical impairment
- Sleep deprivation
- Drug use
- Road design
