Causes of Car Accidents in Atlanta Georgia
Many factors contribute to automobile accidents, and most of them involve some type of driver error. Drivers have a duty to other motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians to exercise reasonable care. When they fail to do so, they can be negligent in a number of ways, including:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Fatigued driving
- Texting while driving
- Aggressive driving
Types of Car Accidents in Atlanta GA
According to the NHTSA, motor vehicle accidents occur at the rate of 90 fatalities and 6,337 injuries per day. Accidents can range in seriousness from minor “fender benders” to tragic fatal crashes. Traffic accidents can occur in many different ways, including:
- Head-on collisions: This is generally the most serious type of accident, because of the impact resulting from the force of both vehicles, with no opposite motion at the point of impact to absorb a portion of the shock.
- Side-impact or T-bone accidents: Vehicle occupants of the side of the impact can be seriously injured in this type of collision, as there is little more than the door of the vehicle to offer protection.
- Side-swipe collisions: These accidents often occur when drivers fail to do a head check and switch lanes in the path of another vehicle, or when they over-react to traffic situations and swerve into other vehicles.
- Rear-end collisions: One of the most common types of accidents, particularly in heavy traffic situations, rear-end collisions often result in whiplash and even more serious injuries.
- Vehicle rollovers: Poor vehicle design with too high of a center of gravity can cause rollover accidents.
