Tulsa Car Accidents Resulting in Serious Injuries
No one ever gets into their car expecting to have a severe car accident that will result in serious injuries. Unfortunately, car accidents happen multiple times a day in Tulsa, and many victims suffer serious injuries. The amount of damage to your car, your passengers and yourself can experience vary depending on the road conditions, the part of your vehicle impacted, and the speed at which both cars were traveling.
Types of Car Accidents
Typically, car accidents can be categorized into four areas:
- If two cars traveling in different directions hit each other on both of their front ends, the accident is deemed a head-on collision. This type of accident is one of the most common types of car crashes that occur, and also a type that can cause serious or catastrophic injuries.
- A rear-end collision occurs when another vehicle collides with the car in front of it. The extent of the injuries resulting from this type of a car accident can be minor to severe. If the driver behind the impacted car is distracted and never hits their brakes, then injuries can be quite serious.
- If a vehicle strikes another car on either side, a side-impact collision occurs. Other terms for this type of impact are broadsided or T-boned. Drivers and passengers may suffer serious injuries.
- Rollover car accidents usually occur when a car is traveling at high speeds and takes a turn too quickly or hydroplanes due to wet roads. Sports utility vehicles are the most common type of autos to roll over; although many car manufacturers have taken great strides in eliminating this problem.
