Types Of Car Accidents

Any car accident has the potential of causing serious injury. Even the common low speed fender-bender can involve enough force to cause soft tissue injuries or exacerbate an already existing injury or medical condition. Even if there is no apparent injury anyone who is in any type of vehicle accident is advised to see a doctor as soon as possible. Not all injuries are immediately painful. Soft tissue injuries may take hours or days to develop pain. Higher speed accidents are more likely to result in more severe or obvious injury which needs immediate medical treatment. If you've suffered an injury in any type of car accident, it is important to consult a skilled Ventura County car crash injury lawyer right away.

CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS

There are a number of ways that one can get into a car accident just as there are different types of car accidents. Almost all vehicular accidents occur because of negligence. A driver may be impaired from drinking or a medication, may be distracted by a cell phone conversation or speeding, driving recklessly or driving too aggressively. Mr. Neustadt and Mr. Berriz have the experience you need to represent you regardless of which type of car accident caused your injury. The most common kinds of car accidents include:

  • Head-on collisions
  • Side swipe accidents
  • Rear-end accidents
  • T-Bone accidents
  • Rollover accidents
  • Defective vehicle or defective automotive component accidents (mistakes in design or manufacturing)
  • Dangerous road accidents (may involve defective construction)
  • Accidents caused by equipment failure or improper maintenance

In most cases you and your car accident lawyer will seek damages from the at-fault driver. In the case of vehicular defects or improper maintenance, the claim may be filed against a manufacturer or a repair shop. After a dangerous road accident you may file a claim for compensation against a government agency.

Until an investigation is completed, the actual cause of the accident may not be known. It might not always be the most obvious cause. You will want to make sure that you work with a law firm that is not afraid to go up against a major car manufacturer and will not shrink from aggressively litigating a claim if that is what it takes to obtain fair compensation.
