Spokane Car Accident Common Types
CASE EVALUATIONS ARE FAST, EASY, AND FREE.
Car accidents of any type can be stressful and painful. Not only are you left dealing with the injuries from the accident, but you also have to manage car repairs and carrying out your regular day-to-day tasks. Unfortunately, car accidents can become even more overwhelming when they are caused by someone else’s negligence. These are some of the most common types of accidents that occur in the Spokane area. In most cases, you will need an experienced legal team to make sure you receive any compensation you deserve, and to help you and your family members move forward in the best way possible.
One of the worst types of accidents is being hit from behind when you’re doing nothing but minding your own business at a traffic light. Rear-end accidents can result in either a minor fender bender or can be more severe depending on the speed of the car behind you. In most rear-end accidents, victims will suffer from whiplash and other neck and back injuries because of the sudden jolt to the neck and head. Even if you think you only experience minor neck pain, it’s important to seek medical attention because these types of injuries can end up worse than you think.
Head-on car collisions can produce some of the most severe injuries. When one vehicle crashes into another head-on, there is a high risk of brain, head, and spinal cord damage that can occur to anyone involved. These injuries are the most likely to become long term, causing many victims to become disabled and never able to work or walk again. In head-on collisions, it’s important that details such as future damages and losses are added into the equation.
When the front end of a vehicle crashes into the side of another, it is called a t-bone car accident. Although it might seem like it’s fairly simple to determine fault in this type of car accident, t-bones can be just as complicated as any other. In most cases, either driver could be at fault depending on the details of the accident. In fact, even bad weather or poor road conditions can cause a t-bone accident. No matter which driver you are in a t-bone accident, you’ll need experienced car accident lawyers to help you figure out who should be held responsible.
Although many vehicles have seat belts and other safety devices for restraining drivers and passengers, there are still instances where people are ejected from the vehicle. These accidents can be some of the most dangerous simply because there could be other vehicles on the roadway and because the person who is ejected may be thrown through glass. It is because of this threat that it’s crucial for everyone in the vehicle to be properly restrained at all times.
Hit-and-run accidents can be the most frustrating of all car accidents simply because the person who caused the accident has left the scene and likely doesn’t want to be found. Fortunately, just because you leave an accident, it doesn’t mean you won’t be held responsible for your part. If you are in a hit-and-run, our lawyers can help you track down the driver and let you know what your options are for moving forward. Even in accidents where you don’t know who caused it, you could be entitled to compensation, but you’ll need experienced lawyers to help.
No matter the type of car accident, you’re likely dealing with a tremendous amount of stress and worry on top of the injuries. If you or a loved one has been in a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to carry the burden of the accident all alone. Our experienced lawyers at Craig Swapp & Associates can help you figure out the best way to move forward and, if you are due compensation, make sure you get what you deserve.
