Most of us drive carefully.
However, as they say, it’s often someone else bad choice that creates an auto accident. From drunk drivers to people who think that they can answer just one more text on their phone to road rage to someone on a joy ride. A moment of misjudgment on someone else part can cause a lifetime of trouble for you when you are in a serious auto accident.
Generally there are several types of auto accidents:
- Ahead on collision, these occur when there is a lane departure crash. The drivers leave their lane, cross the meridian, and collide with another vehicle. Sometimes, they collide with a roadside object. These include head on collisions and run-off-road fender benders.
- At cross roads and intersections, you are particularly vulnerable. There are rear-ending collisions, which are most common. As well as being t-boned in an angle or side impact.
- There are accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists, who are often aware of their surroundings but often road conditions or being tired. You come around a corner and there they are.
- Skunks, cats, deer and other creatures that wander our roads without a clue, can also cause accidents.
So with all of those unfortunate possibilities, you suddenly find you’ve been in an auto accident. You’ve been injured. It’s not your fault. Dealing with feeling awful, being upset and not knowing what to do next you don’t know where to turn for help, guidance and assurance.
