Road collision types

Road collisions come in various types, each presenting risks and potential for injury. Certain types of collisions can cause more harm than others and can result in catastrophic injuries or fatalities. The severity of the collision will depend on the accident type, the speed each vehicle was traveling, the point of impact, and other factors.

    What are the 4 most common collision types?

    1. Head-on collisions

    Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous types of road collisions. In a head-on collision, two vehicles that are traveling in opposite directions collide frontally, resulting in a high-impact crash. These collisions often result in severe injuries and even fatalities. Their danger lies in the direct forceful impact, which puts the occupants in each vehicle at a significant risk of harm.

    2. Side collision

    Side-impact collisions, also known as T-bones or broadside crashes, occur when a vehicle is struck on its side by another vehicle. The side of a vehicle offers less protection compared to the front or rear, making occupants vulnerable to direct impacts.

    3. Rear-end collisions

    Rear-end accidents occur when a vehicle strikes another from behind. Even when a rear-end accident happens at a lower speed it can still result in injuries, especially neck and back injuries like whiplash. Rear-end crashes are often caused by factors such as sudden stops, tailgating,  texting, or other forms of distracted driving.

    4. Vehicle rollover

    A rollover accident involves a vehicle flipping over onto its side or onto its roof. Unfortunately, this type of collision often results in life-changing injuries or fatalities.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
