Rear-end crashes transpire when one vehicle collides with the back of another. These car accidents are often caused by tailgating or sudden stops and can lead to whiplash injuries.

Sideswipe Collisions

Sideswipe accidents involve vehicles colliding alongside each other. They can easily happen when one vehicle changes lanes without signaling, leading to a side-impact collision.

T-Bone Wrecks

T-Bone accidents, commonly referred to as side-impact collisions, occur when the front of one vehicle crashes into the side of another. Intersections are common sites for these accidents.

Head-On Collisions

Head-on collisions refer to accidents that involve the front ends of two vehicles colliding. These accidents often result because of wrong-way driving or drifting into oncoming traffic.

Multicar Crashes

Multicar collisions involve three or more vehicles in a chain reaction. These accidents can result in severe damage.


Hit-and-run collisions occur when the driver who causes a wreck speeds off before their identity can be known. This often requires a claim against your own uninsured motorist coverage.
