When you’re involved in a car accident, the nature of the damage sustained and of your injuries depend on many factors. Some of these factors include elements such as the position the vehicles were in when the collision occurred, the speed at which both vehicles were traveling at, and the direction both vehicles were traveling toward. All these factors are taken into consideration when the collision is investigated to determine what party was liable and what happened in the moments before the crash.
These factors are commonly categorized into various “types” of accidents that can occur. These categories are used during the investigation as well as by insurance companies to determine who may be eligible for compensation and how the settlement may likely proceed.
