Common Types of Car Accidents

Car accidents can involve a variety of different circumstances, and all collisions can lead to serious injuries. Some of the most common types of car accidents include:

  • Head-on collisions: These accidents occur when, for whatever reason, the front of one vehicle collides with the front of another vehicle traveling in the opposite direction. Head-on collisions often result from one driver crossing over the center lane or divider and smashing into another car.
  • Rear-end collisions: These accidents occur when one vehicle collides into the back end of the vehicle in front of it. Rear-end collisions are the one of the most common type of accidents and are often the result of distracted driving, reckless driving, or intoxicated driving.
  • Roll-over accidents: These accidents are very dangerous and involve a vehicle rolling once or many times as the result of some sort of impact. Vehicles with a high center of gravity, such as SUVs, vans, and passenger trucks, are most at risk for rollover.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

In Chicago, there is statute of limitations of two years on all personal injury cases.

What does that mean for you?

If you've been injured in an accident, you only have two years to file a claim for injuries sustained during the crash. If you miss this date, it will be difficult, if not impossible, to have your case heard in court.

If your loved one was killed in a car accident, and you wish to file a wrongful death claim, you only have one year to file a claim. It's crucial to the success of your case to hire an attorney who is knowledgeable in personal injury law and has experience representing the rights of victims in car accidents.
