    Common Types of Car Accident

    Car accidents can occur in a variety of ways. While some crashes involve multi-car pileups, the vast majority of collisions involve two vehicles. The most common types of car accidents include:

    • Rear-end collisions. Arguably the most common type of crash, a rear-end collision involves the front of one vehicle running into the back of another. These crashes often involve the rear driver following too closely or failing to pay close attention to traffic conditions.
    • Front-end collisions. Front-end or head-on collisions are often devastating in nature. These crashes involve the front of two vehicles colliding with each other. These crashes commonly occur when one driver drifts into the path of oncoming traffic.
    • Side-impact collisions. Also known as T-bone or broadside collisions, side-impact crashes involve the front-end of one vehicle running into the side of another. Side-impact collisions most often occur when one driver runs a stop sign or red light.
    • Rollover collisions. Rollover crashes occur when one vehicle is struck hard enough to send it rolling end over end. Given the limited protection, the roofs of most cars offer, these crashes are frequently deadly.

    What Our Clients Say

    "The staff at Rutter Mills worked for me from the first minute I was in their office. They called and emailed every week and kept better records than I did. I was injured and had to undergo two operations from the accident. The recovery period was long with many physical therapy sessions over the next year. The staff emailed me many times, asking if there was anything they could do to make me feel better during my recovery. During this time my attorney was active in filing the paperwork for court litigation, but was contacted by the other law firm that wished to discuss settling my case. Depositions were done and the final one was scheduled and I was present to complete that phase of the case. My attorney got a maximum award for me and I will be forever grateful for his and their staff's work and attention during my time of legal need. Rutter Mills will be my only call if I ever need legal representation in the future." ★★★★★ -Dan, Rutter Mills Client
