Houston Lawyer Handles All Types of Automobile Accidents
Call a Houston lawyer you can trust immediately after an automobile accident. Having a competent and hard-working attorney on your case is important to maximize the compensation to which you are entitled. These are some of the most common types of automobile accidents that can occur.
Crashes at low speeds may cause less significant damage, but cause damage nonetheless. Shopping car bumps, fender benders, collisions in parking lots below 10 miles per hour risk property damage and injuries to passengers and pedestrians.
Be especially careful at intersections, whether they are controlled by traffic lights or stop signs. T-bone accidents are often caused by red-light and stop sign runners or drivers turning left without yielding to oncoming traffic.
Collisions when merging
Sideswiping occurs when the drivers of merging vehicles fail to yield to each other. Be especially careful when merging into traffic or changing lanes.
Rear-end collisions are some of the most common traffic accidents, usually occurring when a driver follows another vehicle too closely and fails to stop in time when the vehicle in front either slows or stops. Inattentive driving and texting while driving often causes rear-end collisions.
Single vehicle accidents
Running off the road, losing control and hitting fixed objects are all types of single-vehicle accidents. Many happen by speeding or through inattentive driving.
Traffic accidents are the top cause of preventable deaths in the United States. The leading causes of car accidents are speeding while driving, reckless driving, use of cell phones, texting while driving, distracted driving, driver fatigue, drunk driving and rubber necking. Additional causes are defects in road construction, poor weather conditions and improper or confusion signage in construction areas.
