Types of Car Accidents

As Greater Hartford is the largest metro area in the state of Connecticut, there are many different types of motorcar collisions which tend to occur. There accidents are typically caused by some sort of negligent action and can range from minimal damages to extreme damages and life-long injuries. Statistically speaking, nearly every ten seconds a motorcar collision occurs throughout the entire state, therefore we must practice defensive driving techniques and abide by all traffic laws to avoid further collisions from occurring.

Some common types of car accidents in Hartford include:

  • Blind spot collisions
  • Fixed object collisions
  • Left turn collisions
  • Opposite-direction collisions
  • Overturned motorcar accidents
  • Right-angle collisions
  • Same-direction collisions
  • Sideswipe collisions
  • U-turn collisions

In any case, in order for a car accident to occur, there must have been some sort of operator error.

Types of Auto Accidents Caused By Operator Errors

Throughout Hartford, all of Connecticut, and across the United States, negligent drivers are causing accidents more often than anyone could fathom. For an accident to occur, a driver must make some type of error which causes them to lose control of their vehicle, or never have control of their vehicle.

Some types of operator errors include:

  • Aggressive driving
  • Applying makeup
  • Distracted driving
  • Drifting out of the lane
  • Driving while intoxicated (drunk driving)
  • Failing to use turn signal
  • Failing to yield
  • Fatigued driving
  • Ignoring traffic signs and signals
  • Improper turns
  • Smoking
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Talking on the phone
  • Texting while driving

As a result of these types of motorcar collisions, there are often property damages, injuries, and possible injury related fatalities.

Types of Car Accident Injuries

In order to receive a winning settlement or verdict following an automobile accident, a person must prove that the injuries and damages were caused by another person’s negligent action. Therefore, obtaining medical documents for all injuries that occurred due to the accident can assist an attorney in formulating a robust case against the negligent person or entity, in addition to a number of other resources.

Some types of motorcar collision injuries include:

  • Airbag injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Burn injuries
  • Concussion injuries
  • Dental injuries
  • Dislocated joints
  • Facial injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Internal injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Loss of limb
  • Nerve damage
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Passenger injuries
  • Psychological injuries
  • Seat belt injuries
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Wrist injuries

Once again, following an auto accident in Hartford, it is highly advised to seek medical attention. This will ensure all injuries are properly cared for while also providing documentation needed to formulate a case against a negligent and injury causing person.
