The many types of auto accidents

On Behalf of | Nov 3, 2016 | Personal Injury

As somebody who gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle on a regular basis, you know just how important it is to avoid trouble at all costs. Unfortunately, even if you do your best to avoid an accident, there are other drivers who never think twice about this. Instead, they take risks and make poor decisions on the road. As a result, they put others at risk of being injured.

As a driver, you should understand the many types of auto accidents. In addition to the most basic, when two passenger vehicles crash, consider the following:

— Accident involving a passenger vehicle and a commercial truck.

— Accident involving a passenger vehicle and a bus.

— Driving under the influence accidents.

— Accidents involving an underinsured or uninsured motorist.

— An accident that occurs while you are on the job.

In an overall sense, all of these accidents are the same. Two or more vehicles are involved, thus leading to damage and the potential for injury.

However, as you dig deeper, you will soon realize that none of these accidents are identical. For instance, a crash involving two passenger cars is different than one in which a bus strikes a smaller vehicle.
