Common Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents can occur in a variety of ways. Whether it happens on a highway during bumper-to-bumper traffic or even in a parking lot, they often result in property damage, injuries, and even fatalities.

The following are common types of motor vehicle accidents:

  • Rear-end collision – When one car crashes into the back of another car.
  • Head-on collision – When the front ends of two vehicles collide into each other.
  • Side-impact collision – Also known as “T-bone” collisions, it occurs when the front of one car crashes into the side of another vehicle.
  • Side-swipe collision – When the sides of two parallel vehicles make contact and “swipe” each other.
  • Rollover accident – When a vehicle flips over onto its roof or side.
  • Multi-vehicle accident – Also known as “pile-ups” or “chain-reaction” collisions, they occur when more than two vehicles are involved in an accident.
  • Single car accident – When only one vehicle is involved, often caused by hazardous road conditions, such as a curvy road, potholes, malfunction traffic lights, and blocked signs.
  • Hit & run accident – When a phantom driver strikes your vehicle, but drives off after the collision occurs.
