What is a Collision?

A collision indicates that your automobile, truck, or other vehicle struck another thing. Collisions may result in property damage, injuries, or even fatalities, and they can be minor or extremely serious.

When we think of collisions, the ones that come to mind most frequently involve two vehicles colliding with each other. This can involve head-on collisions, an impact with another vehicle’s rear, and various other kinds of auto accidents. 

However, not all collisions involve one vehicle colliding with another vehicle. Other kinds of frequent collisions include the following:

  • A Car Hitting a Pedestrian
  • Motorcycle Accident
  • A Car Hitting a Bicyclist
  • Semi-Truck Accidents
  • A Car Hitting an Animal
  • Running off the Road and Hitting an Object

If you are the victim of an auto accident, you have rights. After the accident, your insurance company will conduct an investigation and come to a conclusion on who was at fault for the collision, whether it was someone who intentionally broke the law or someone who was just negligent. 

The liable party or their insurance company will be responsible for all of the costs associated with the accident, including all medical expenses as well as damage to property. Anyone who has been hurt in a car crash should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as they can after the incident.

Contact a Car Accident Injury Lawyer

Anytime you’re struck by another vehicle, you should contact an experienced lawyer to assist with your case.

The insurance company does not always have your best interests in mind when it comes to determining fault and providing compensation for your losses. They will first protect their own interests before protecting yours.

If you want to make sure you are not taken advantage of, your best option is to seek immediate legal counsel. An experienced auto accident lawyer will advise you on what steps to take so you do not do anything that could harm your case.
