What is the Most Common Type of Crash?
The three most common types of accidents include rear-end accidents, head-on collisions and side-impact crashes. However, the most common type of crash in Atlanta and throughout the nation is a rear-end collision. These accidents tend to occur in stop-and-go traffic, at signal lights and at stop signs. Sometimes drivers cannot judge distance appropriately or determine how quickly a car in front is slowing down. This especially occurs when traffic comes to a halt during rush hour.
These accidents can cause serious injuries to the drivers and passengers of the vehicles that are hit. The sudden jerking motion can be forceful, making a driver hit their head, sustain a concussion, whiplash, brain injury, back and neck injuries, and more. If you have been injured in a rear-end accident in Georgia, the other driver may have been speeding, tailgating, talking on the cell phone or texting. You most likely have a legal case against the negligent driver. Call an Atlanta injury attorney at Kalka & Baer LLC for a free legal consultation, to discuss your case in detail.
