There are a variety of different types of car accidents which can cause serious harm and injuries to victims. The nature of the car accident can have an impact on the nature of the injuries and harm suffered which can include life-threatening injuries in situations of fatal accidents. Personal injury and wrongful death legal protections are available to victims of car accidents to help them with the damages suffered.
Head-on collisions can result in catastrophic injuries to victims including ejections from the vehicle and other life-threatening injuries. While head-on collisions involve significant force, rear-end collisions can also be deadly and may also cause significant injuries and harm. Rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accident. Rear-end car accidents can result in serious neck injuries, spinal cord injuries and concussions. Whip lash injuries, commonly suffered in car accidents, can be serious injuries and may be difficult, costly and time-intensive to treat.
