Passionately Pursuing Justice for the Injured

Common Types of Car Accidents in Houston

Representing Victims of All Types of Vehicle Accidents

Many of our clients come to us seeking legal guidance after a car accident. At The Daspit Law Firm, we take a great interest in traffic safety and related information. We strive not only to help our clients recover compensation for their losses and expenses, but also to help keep the community safe by holding negligent drivers accountable for their actions.

To gain a better understanding of your situation, or simply to educate yourself on the potential dangers on the road, review the different kinds of car accidents below. By understanding how and why these accidents occur, you may be better prepared if you find yourself in a situation involving a car accident. It is also important to know the few most common accidents that could occur if you are driving around in your vehicle. There is no way to guarantee that you will not be in an accident, but there are things you should know to help you avoid it.

These are just a few of the most common types of car accidents:

  • Head-on collisions
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Side/T-bone collisions

Head-On Collisions

Head-On Collision: Common Car Accident

When two cars collide head-on, the results could be devastating. This is one of the most dangerous types of accidents because the force of impact is much greater. You may be at risk of head-on collisions while driving on roads with narrow lanes and no separation from opposing traffic. Be on the lookout for distracted or intoxicated drivers veering around the road—but also be prepared for sudden and unexpected maneuvers.

Rear-End Collisions

Rear-End Accident: Common Vehicle Accident

Rear-end car collisions are some of the most common types of accidents and often occur when a driver is distracted and not paying attention to the cars in front of them, or when a driver suddenly and unexpectedly brakes.

In many cases, these accidents might be avoided if a driver was practicing safer driving habits. In a rear-end collision, it is important to establish who may be at fault—not only to help you recover necessary compensation but also to protect yourself against false blame.

Side/T-Bone Collisions

T-Bone Accidents are a Very Common Type of Accident

Broadside collisions, also known as T-bone collisions, occur when one vehicle impacts head-on with the side of another vehicle. This kind of accident is common in accidents at intersections when drivers are distracted and do not notice red lights. Like head-on collisions, T-bone accidents can result in serious injuries because the head-on driver may be traveling at high speeds if they are not expecting to brake.

We Accept Cases on a Contingency Fee Basis

By law, Texas drivers must be able to pay for the damages and injuries that they cause in a car accident. However, this does not guarantee that the other driver in your accident is insured—you might be left without insurance coverage for your losses and expenses. If you suffered catastrophic injuries in an accident, this could leave you with heavy financial burdens.

By filing a personal injury claim against the negligent driver, you may be able to hold them accountable and recover the compensation you need for medical treatment, lost wages, and your pain and suffering. At The Daspit Law Firm, our Houston lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we only collect fees if you are awarded compensation in your case. Your recovery shouldn't put you further into debt, and with our firm at your side, it doesn't have to.
