Your main concern after being in a car accident is probably figuring out how you can prove that you are not the one to blame for what happened. If you do not understand the events that led up to your collision, you could be found partially or totally liable and wind up out of thousands of dollars for medical bills and repair costs. At Browne Law Group, we make it our mission to do everything we can for our clients to help them gain the compensation they deserve by showing clearly that liability does not belong on their laps. Part of this important process is analyzing the type of car accident you were in and how it may have come about.

While there is surely any number of ways two or more vehicles can crash into each other, there seems to be the same five types or sources of car accidents on just about every safety organization’s top lists. To strengthen your case and chances of receiving the monetary support you deserve, it can be beneficial to get a clearer understanding of these car accident types. When it comes time to state your argument, either in the conference room to pursue a settlement or the courtroom during litigation, you will be far more prepared than what the opposition expected. You should also never forget that our Gilbert personal injury lawyer, Mr. Byron Browne, always has your back if you have a question, concern, or just need him to advocate your case on your behalf.
Five of the most common types of car accidents, in no particular order, are:
Rear end crashes: Most insurance companies will automatically assume the rear car in a rear end crash is at least 50% to blame for the incident. If you were in the front, you need that assumption to go straight to 100%. If you were the driver in the back, there could be ways to show that the front driver did something wrong. It all depends on the legal counsel you choose to retain.
T-bone collisions: Most often found at intersections, T-bone collisions are extremely dangerous. Fatalities and injuries are reported at an inordinately high frequency in T-bone collision cases due to the driver who was struck having little protection between them and the impact.
Sideswipes: We have all been driving and had to take defensive action to prevent a collision with a negligent, distracted driver who started to swerve into our lane. Sometimes they do it so suddenly, the resulting sideswipe cannot be prevent. Other times, they do it so violently, they run the other vehicle right off the road and cause a serious car accident.
Hit-and-run: What is more frustrating than being hit by a reckless driver? Being hit by one who flees the scene before they can be identified. If you are injured by a hit-and-run driver, Browne Law Group can assist you with the intricate process of determining who to sue and how to sue them for your recovery.
Drunk driving accidents: Speaking of illegal activities like a hit-and-run, drunk drivers cause thousands of car accidents each year, hurting more than just themselves. Intoxication is not enough to automatically make them totally liable for the damages, though. You will still need to craft an intelligent case that argues well on your behalf.
Getting struck by a dangerous driver, no matter what type of car accident it was, can take you right off your feet, literally. We want to be the legal team that helps you stand back up, figuratively as well, and get the compensation and treatment you deserve. To make it easier on you, we offer a “no fee policy” that states we do not collect attorney fees unless we win your case; it is a simple and effective way to show you that we care about your wellbeing and your comfortable future.
