What Causes Rollover Car Accidents?

What Is A Rollover Car Accident? A rollover car accident typically occurs when the vehicle involved in the accident strikes an object or other vehicle which causes it to lose control and affects the balance and stability of the vehicle causing it to tip over and roll. This is known as a tripping rollover accident. The other way that rollover car accidents occur is in a 'non-tripping' way. These types of accidents occur when the driver loses control of the vehicle and the car rolls due to driving off the road, turning too quickly, or avoiding an obstacle like a deer or other animal. Rollover car accidents can be end-over-end where the car flips bumper to bumper or they can barrel roll from driver to passenger side. No matter what type of rollover accident a person is part of the chances of sustaining a serious injury or being killed are higher than with other accident types.

Who Is At Fault in Left Turn Car Accidents?

What Is A Left-Hand Car Accident? As the name suggests a left-turn car accident occurs when a person is attempting to make a left-hand turn typically at an intersection but it could be into their driveway or into a parking lot of some kind. The reason there are so many accidents involving people making left turns is that it puts the driver right into oncoming traffic to complete the turn. If there isn't enough time for them to complete the maneuver or the driver coming towards them disobeys a traffic law such as running a red light it can mean a serious accident and possibly severe injuries. It can be difficult to determine who is at fault when it comes to left-turn car accidents since the person who generally gets hit has entered the oncoming lane but it is not always that person's fault. If you have been injured in a left-turn car accident regardless of whether you were the person turning left or the...

What Does Head On Collision Mean? Understanding Car Accidents

Depending on the type of car accident you are involved in you could be looking at anything from minor injuries to the tragic loss of life. One of the most severe types of car accidents is a head-on collision. What is a head-on collision? A head-on collision occurs when two vehicles moving in opposite directions run into each other. The forces that are created by two vehicles moving at high speed towards each other and then smashing into each other can have catastrophic consequences, usually causing severe injuries.

There are many reasons that two cars could end up in...
