    3 Common Types of Car Accidents

    The circumstances of a car accident will certainly play a role in determining the type of injuries you may sustain. For example, if you are involved in a side-impact car crash, you can easily have lacerations caused by a window breaking during the accident. Despite how your injuries occurred, you deserve to be compensated for an accident that was not your fault. The following is a list of types of car accident and the injuries they are likely to cause.

    Rear-End Impacts

    Rear-end car accidents often occur because a driver was distracted and did not notice the vehicle ahead of them preparing to stop. Whether a rear-end collision happens at a slow rate of speed or a high rate of speed you can still suffer a serious injury.

    Whiplash is one of the most common types of injuries caused by a rear-end crash. Whiplash occurs when a person’s neck and head swing forward rapidly and snap back into place. This injury could cause a victim to experience severe pain and loss of range of motion in their neck area. You may not experience the signs and symptoms of whiplash until days or weeks later, which is why it is important to seek medical attention immediately after a car accident.

    Back injuries are another common type of injury associated with rear-end collisions. A serious back injury could prevent you from working and may require a lengthy amount of time to recover from.

    Head-On Collisions

    A head-on collision is likely the most dangerous type of car accident. This is because there are several ways to be injured during a head-on crash. For example, if a passenger is not wearing a seatbelt during a head-on crash, they can be launched from their seat into or through the windshield. This can lead to broken bones, lacerations, and various other injuries. It is important to always wear a seatbelt while driving because not only will it keep you safe, but it may hurt your personal injury claim if you were not wearing one during an accident.

    Head injuries are also possible during a head-on crash. If you hit your head on the steering wheel, dashboard, or even an airbag, you can suffer a concussion or a traumatic brain injury. These types of injuries could affect your memory, behavior, and possibly leave you partially paralyzed.

    T-Bone Accidents

    A side-impact car crash, also known as a T-bone accident, is when a vehicle strikes your car from a perpendicular angle. This type of accident can leave you with long-term or permanent injuries. Fractured ribs are a common injury caused by T-bone accidents, usually because a driver or passenger will make contact with a car door that was struck.

    Bone fractures are just one type of serious injury caused by side-impact accidents. As mentioned, broken window glass from the impact may strike your face and arms and leave you with multiple scars once they heal. You should not have to suffer from disfigurement because another driver was careless.

    This is not a complete list. Other types of car accidents can cause a victim of serious injury. If you suffered an injury that was not mentioned above, our firm would be proud to help you build your case.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.
