Most Common Kinds of Florida Car Accidents

Any motor vehicle accident is able to cause critical injuries to both passengers and drivers. Pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists also incur the risk of sustaining catastrophic injuries. In the state of Florida, some of the more frequent and serious types of vehicle collisions include:  

Head-On Collisions

The power of two vehicles in motion colliding head-first into one another is capable of producing an extremely violent impact, as does any crash that has two vehicles contributing to it. The pure force of the contact is able to produce a broad range of serious injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries and other head trauma, injuries to the spinal cord and neck, internal bleeding and damage to vital internal organs, broken and fractured bones, and torn ligaments in the lower extremities.

Broadside/T-Bone Collisions

Because of the close proximity of a passenger or driver to the point of impact, broadside and T-bone accidents usually result in catastrophic injuries. These injuries often include irreparable damage to internal organs, damage to the spinal cord potentially causing paralysis, broken hips, and shoulder injuries.

Rollover Accidents

When a vehicle overturns, its roof can collapse or be crushed on passengers and drivers, causing victims to endure traumatic brain injuries and other trauma to the head. Damage to the spine can also occur, which could, in turn, cause either paraplegia or quadriplegia. Should a victim’s seat belts fail to contract during a rollover, the occupant could be seriously shaken when the vehicle rolls over, a circumstance that frequently leads to whiplash.

Rear-End Collisions

When people think of a rear-end collision, they often picture a minor fender-bender. When these accidents take place at high speeds, however, they frequently produce various catastrophic injuries. Vehicle occupants could be projected into the steering column or be involved in a secondary crash with the vehicle in front of them, resulting in multiple points of impact and additional injuries. Although in most instances the striking vehicle is deemed liable, leading drivers can also be accountable if they stopped suddenly or reversed down a busy street.
