Types of Auto Accidents

Additionally, accidents with certain types of vehicles, such as a trucks, are different from accidents only involving passenger cars. For example, due to the larger mass of a truck, the forces involved at the moment on impact are often significantly more when compared to a regular, passenger vehicle.

Have you or someone you love been involved in an accident that occurred while coming home from work that was not your fault? Are your interests currently being protected? Have you considered filing a damages claim to compensate you for losses?

These are important questions as in most cases, being involved in an accident often requires time off work to help recover from any injuries you may have sustained, while also needing to have your vehicle repaired. Both of which can be areas that you may be able to be financially compensated for.

With this in mind, some of the most common causes of car crashes include:

Inexperience is another factor to consider, in Illinois there were more than 30,000 accidents involving drivers under the age of 18. Additionally more than 36,000 drivers over the age of 65 were involved in collisions that same year.
