Common Types of Car Accidents
There are multiple types of car accidents that we see at RHINO Lawyers. Most of these accidents can result in injury and we have represented multiple clients in each.
Sideswipe Car Crashes
Whether caused by lane changes or texting, sideswipe crashes are incredibly common throughout Sarasota. In fact, drivers and/or passengers on the swiped side are susceptible to injury. And, determining who is at fault can often be solved by answering several questions, including:
- Did the other driver check the other lane before changing?
- Were you in their blind spot?
- Were the proper traffic signals used before changing lanes?
Any injured parties qualify for medical compensation, and RHINO Lawyers can assist in obtaining it for you.
Distracted drivers can also slam into the back of your vehicle if they are texting, talking with passengers, or looking elsewhere. Rear-end incidents at stoplights are a common type of car accident and can result in injury even if it happens at a slow speed. For example, a slow-speed rear-end accident can cause neck jarring and require rehab and other treatments for months afterward.
Other Causes of Car Accidents
- On the phone, while driving
- Applying makeup
- Adjusting radio
- Eating or drinking while driving
- Focusing on their children
- Looking in the mirror
