No two accidents are the same, but most accidents are caused by the same factors and involve similar damages and losses. To fully grasp the personal, financial, and legal implications of an accident, it is important to first understand the different types of accidents that occur. You must also understand how these accidents occur and the kinds of damages that you may be able to recover for accidents of different types. An understanding of the evidentiary requirements and insurance rules that apply to your case is also important.
According to figures from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are roughly six million motor vehicle accidents of all types every year. Many of these accidents are:
- Rollover accidents

- Side-impact/T-Bone accidents

- Intersection accidents
- Speeding, reckless driving, or aggressive driving accidents
- Damaged road or vehicle breakdown accidents

Other factors that can cause or contribute to an accident include a driver’s unfamiliarity with a certain area, dangerous driving to meet tight delivery deadlines, and issues with traffic control signs and signals or lane markings such as missing devices or markings or unclear/unmaintained signs or markings. Objects or vehicles that are difficult to see such as pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, road debris, and unmarked road fixtures can also cause an accident.
