Common Car Accidents in Daytona Beach
Being involved in a rear-end collision can be the result of many different circumstances, such as an animal, pedestrian, or other obstacle appearing on the road that causes the lead car to stop or slow abruptly, and then be hit by the car behind them. However, these types of accidents often happen at stop signs or red lights when the read driver is distracted by their cellphone, passengers, or other things taking their attention off the road, and they drive into the stopped lead vehicle.
These accidents, even at low speed, put the victims at a high risk of whiplash because of the direction of the vehicle, as well as a variety of other injuries.
A T-Bone crash is one where a vehicle strikes another vehicle from the side, making a “T” with the two vehicles during the crash. In many cases, these types of accidents happen when a vehicle runs a stop sign, red light, or yield while another vehicle is following the traffic laws.
These types of crashes can put the passengers of the vehicle struck from the side at serious risk, simply because of the lack of structural protection on the sides of vehicles. There are side airbags in modern cars, but the sheer force of the impact puts a lot of stress and strain on the passengers either way.
A head-on collision is one of the most dangerous accidents to be involved in, for a variety of reasons. Primarily, these collisions are so dangerous and damaging because the impact between vehicles is essentially the equivalent of each vehicle’s speed (excluding differences in weight, size of the vehicle, etc.).
Head-on collisions can cause seatbelt injuries, whiplash, broken bones, concussions or other traumatic brain injuries, internal bleeding, and much more. It is very important that we work to determine fault for this accident, why the other driver veered into your lane, and work aggressively to get you all of the money that you need and deserve for this situation.
Rollover crashes can happen for a variety of reasons, but the most often happen when a driver changes direction quickly to avoid another driver, an obstacle, or perhaps even in an attempt to correct their course after realizing that they are veering. Since the direction and effects of a rollover crash are very unpredictable, the injury rates and the severity of injuries are significantly higher in these types of crashes as compared to others.
We will need to work to first establish that your rollover accident was caused by someone else, at which point we will fight to get you the economic and non-economic damages that you need in order to get your life back on track and to recover from your injuries without fear of major financial problems.
