Different types of collisions occur on roads and highways. Each can be fatal, but it all depends on factors such as road and weather conditions, and the state of vehicles and drivers involved, among others. The most common major road collisions in Cypress are:
Rear-end collisions occur when one vehicle rams another from behind when moving in the same direction. Typically, this happens when the driver in front suddenly breaks. They may also stem from tailgating, faulty brake systems, road rage, and poor road conditions such as when it is icy.
As the name suggests, a sideswipe occurs when vehicles scratch each other on their sides. They may be traveling in the same or opposite directions. Unsafe lane changes and aggressive driving are top contributors to these collisions.
T-Bone collisions are prevalent at intersections. They occur when one vehicle crashes another on its side, forming a letter T. Unfortunately, these types of crashes can be fatal at crossroads where cars are moving at high speeds. Aggressive driving, running a red light, and distracted driving are the top causes.
Vehicles moving in opposite directions on a single-lane highway are prone to head-on collisions if one motorist fails to observe traffic rules and drives recklessly. Unsafe lane changes, drunk driving, distracted driving, and careless overtaking are the top reasons why vehicles collide with one another from their front ends. Sadly, many of them are fatal, especially when they involve passenger vehicles and commercial trucks.
Cypress major road accidents occur due to a variety of reasons. Expectedly, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration attributes most of them to negligent and reckless driving. Drivers are usually to blame for:
That said, other parties may also be at fault. Trucking companies may bear liability based on negligent driver hiring and improper maintenance. Faulty vehicle parts and designs may constitute a product liability claim against the car manufacturer. Road construction companies and local state agencies may find themselves at fault for poor road designs and conditions. No matter how an accident occurs, someone is likely to have been negligent. It is the role of a qualified attorney to investigate the circumstances of your accident to establish liability.
