Car Accidents  Help Is Just a Call Away

Naples Car Accident Lawyer

While many people know that car accidents are a leading cause of injury in the U.S., few are aware of just how often collisions actually occur. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 2.5 million people suffer crash-related injuries every year. Although these numbers are alarming for anyone who spends a significant amount of time on the road, it is also important to note that car accident victims are not without legal recourse, so if you or a loved one were recently injured in a car crash, you should speak with an experienced Naples car accident lawyer who can explain your legal options.

Types of Car Accidents

While no two car accidents are ever exactly the same, there are certain types of collisions that share enough similarities that they can be categorized together. These categories include:

  • Head-on collisions, in which the front ends of two vehicles strike each other;
  • Rear-end accidents, which occur when the front of one vehicle collides with the rear portion of another vehicle;
  • Sideswipe accidents, which occur when one vehicle scrapes alongside another;
  • Multi-vehicle accidents, which involve collisions between multiple vehicles;
  • Side-impact collisions, which are also known as t-bone crashes, and involve one vehicle striking another on its side; and
  • Rollover accidents, in which a vehicle actually rolls over, often as a result of a mechanical failure or poor road conditions.

Whether an injured party can recover compensation after being involved in one of these types of accidents will depend on a number of factors. To learn more, please call our office today.

Common Car Accident Injuries

All accidents have the potential to cause injury, but certain kinds of accidents are notorious for resulting in specific injuries. Head-on collisions and multi-car pile-ups, for example, are some of the most dangerous types of car crashes because they often occur at high speeds and so tend to result in catastrophic injuries. Rear-end accidents, on the other hand, are often less serious, but can still cause significant vehicular damage, as well as back and neck problems in the vehicles’ occupants. Sideswipe accidents rarely result in physical injury, but can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to a vehicle, while side-impact collisions are known for causing head trauma, chest and abdominal injuries, and hearing loss. Rollover accidents, however, are more likely to occur with large vehicles, especially top heavy SUVs and trucks. The injuries sustained in these accidents are almost always severe, as there is a greater likelihood that a person will be ejected from or trapped beneath the car.

Fortunately, accident victims who sustain these kinds of injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence could be entitled to a monetary award compensating them for related medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
