Head-on collisions can occur when one car is traveling the wrong way on the road. These accidents can lead to devastating consequences. In order to determine who is at fault for the accident, there should be an investigation into how the accident was caused to happen this way.
Multi-vehicle pile-ups can include more than two motor vehicles in an accident. With more vehicles involved in the accident, it can be harder to pinpoint who is at fault for the incident. These types of accidents can create a domino effect to occur, making even more motor vehicles involved. Due to the increase in people involved, insurance companies may be more inclined to overlook serious injuries.
Rear-end accidents are when the front of one car hits the back end of the car in front of it. In New York, laws generally hold that the car that did the rear-ending is responsible for the accident. However, exceptions to this rule can be given if the driver of the rear-ending vehicle has a reasonable explanation for the collision. For these cases, it may be helpful to consult a legal professional to consider your options.
Rollover accidents can occur when a driver loses control of a vehicle and the car turns onto its side as a result. These accidents can be life-threatening. When vehicles go around sharp turns or travel at high speeds, they may run the risk of rolling over.
Side-impact collisions are also known as T-bone collisions. This occurs when the front end of a car directly hits the side of another car. These accidents are more broad. They can be caused by a distracted driver and many other reasons leading to the accident.
With Ubers on the rise, these vehicles can also be involved in accidents. Uber, Lyft and taxi accidents may seem different since you are not the driver. However, you can still seek out responsibility for the accident. Consult a professional attorney to find out what could work best for you.
