types of car accidents

When drivers are negligent, there are many types of serious car accident injuries that can result in dangerous or life-threatening injuries to those who share the road. With the advent of cell phone use, there has been an increase in driver negligence related to distracted drivers who are not paying attention while driving—due to talking on the phone or reading text messages. Drunk drivers are frequently the cause of serious injury accidents, as their responses are slower and they often speed, drive recklessly, swerve or even go the wrong way on streets or highways. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury accident in which a negligent driver was involved, it is strongly advised that you contact a Denver personal injury attorney to assist you in filing a claim or lawsuit against the liable party. Watch this video about what to do if an uninsured drunk driver hits you.

The legal proceedings that occur after an accident can be confusing, and often the other party doesn't have your best interest in mind when they are trying to bring things to a conclusion. The insurance company of the other driver will want to end the incident without paying large sums, if at all possible, and that means they may rush you into making decisions or statements that could be detrimental to you later. Your injuries will probably be very costly, especially because recovery can be a lengthy process, so don't let the other party push you around or give you less than you need to take care of yourself and your loved ones after the accident. Let the experts at Anderson, Hemmat & McQuinn take over and fight on your side. We won't let the other party push you around or take advantage of you in this vulnerable time. You deserve proper compensation, and we will help you get it.

There are a Variety of Automobile Accident Types

Accidents come in all shapes and sizes, and depending on the kind of accident in which you were involved, can cause massive amounts of damage and injuries. We can handle accidents in all of the unpleasant forms, and may be able to help you identify where the fault lies. Here are a few of the different varieties of accidents that happen, and some of the consequences that follow:

Head-on collisions are statistically the most likely to result in catastrophic injury or death, and the highest number of fatal accidents are a result of a head-on crash. Fractures, head injuries, spinal injuries, brain injuries or loss of life are sadly far too common in such accidents. When another driver has caused the accident, taking legal action against them is necessary. These accidents produce some of the most costly property damage and personal injuries, and paying for the resulting bills can be a stressful, painful experience. It is essential to get help, so that you don't suffer any more than you already have.

Drunk driving accidents are unfortunately a common type of auto accident, particularly in cases where the driver was speeding. These accidents can result in catastrophic injuries. The injuries can be more severe if the driver that was drunk passed out while driving. If you have been hit by a drunk driver, it is imperative to contact one of our experienced drunk driver accident attorneys today!

Distracted driving accidents are becoming more and more prevalent. If you need an attorney to represent your distracted driving accident claim or lawsuit, we encourage you to call us immediately. The sooner our Denver distracted driving accident team hears from you, the faster we can help.

Rear-end accidents at intersections are a common type of accident, particularly in cases where the driver was negligent and inattentive. These accidents can result in severe injuries, whiplash, fractures, crushed limbs and soft-tissue injuries. The injuries can be more severe if the driver that was rear-ended was pushed into oncoming traffic at an intersection, resulting in a multi-vehicle crash. Your car may be struck from several different sides in a case such as this, making the possible resulting injuries even more grievous. If you have been involved in a rear-end collision, it is imperative to be checked out by a medical professional to assess any physical damage. These accidents can cause problems that aren't noticeable right away, especially after the shock of the incident overall.

Rollover accidents occur in cases in which a driver is sideswiped on a freeway or pushed into moving lanes of traffic. Some rollovers could be the result of a design failure and, if this can be proven, would be addressed in a product liability case. Other such cases are due to faulty systems in the vehicle, whether a braking system, accelerator or even an airbag or seatbelt that failed to function properly. If mechanical failure isn't the problem, then the other driver may have been distracted, with incredibly unfortunate results. Whatever the cause, rollover accidents are likely to cause very serious injuries, which can include fractures, head injuries, spinal injuries, brain injuries or loss of life, alongside the fact that a rolled vehicle is very likely to be totaled.

T-bone accidents are the leading cause of accidents in the United States and T-bone accidents can lead to more serious injuries due to the nature of the impact. A T-bone accident normally occurs at an intersection or in a parking lot where two vehicle are traveling perpendicular to each other.

No matter how the accident occurred, the legal team at Anderson, Hemmat & McQuinn provides high-quality, experienced and aggressive legal counsel, with the full intention of seeking compensation for clients who have been injured through the actions of another driver or faulty auto part.

Anderson, Hemmat & McQuinn Personal Injury Case FAQ's

Let us help you answer the tough questions you may have about your case. If you don't find what you're looking for you can ask your question here any time.


  • When does a personal injury case go to court?

    Typically, a personal injury accident case will go to trial when a settlement agreement cannot be reached outside of courts. If the defendant in the personal injury case is refusing to offer a settlement that accurately reflects the extent of damages, then a trial might be the only option to secure maximum financial compensation.

  • How do I know if I should accept a settlement offer?

    The best way to know whether or not you should accept a personal injury settlement is to consult with an accident lawyer you trust. Insurance companies try to get claimants to settle quickly before they know how much they actually could get for their accident. Consider having your personal injury case evaluated by a Denver accident attorney from our law firm.

  • How much does it cost to hire a lawyer from your law firm?

    Anderson, Hemmat & McQuinn operates on a contingency fee basis. This is a "no recovery, no fee" guarantee which basically states that you do not owe us attorney fees until we obtain a verdict or settlement for you. To learn more about payment options, please call our experienced accident attorneys directly.

  • Do I need an accident lawyer to handle my personal injury case?

    While it is not mandatory that you have legal representation for a personal injury case, it can be extremely beneficial. Many people are cut short of the financial compensation because they were not aware of how much they actually deserved for their extensive accident.

  • I don't think my accident was very serious. Should I still go to the hospital?

    Many people do not go to the hospital after car accidents either because they think they are not injured or they fear they will have to pay out of pocket for the visit. Truthfully, many car accident injuries can go undetected and may not begin to bother the victim until days or even weeks after the accident. As a precaution, anyone involved in a moderate to serious car accident should go to the hospital for a physical evaluation. Most likely, this visit will be covered by insurance. Just be sure to keep record of the visit and the payment for the visit.

  • How do I know if I'm being offered a fair settlement for my auto accident?

    It can be difficult for a driver to know how much they're entitled to after a car accident. Many drivers accept the insurance company's first settlement offer because they trust that it's fair and will be enough to cover all accident-related expenses. This is not always the case. We encourage drivers to consult with a car accident attorney after a collision for a second opinion on how much your claim is worth. More often than not, insurance companies offer claimants far less than they actually deserve.

  • How is the value of my claim calculated?

    Colorado has comparative/contributory negligence laws. This means that even drivers who are partially at fault for accidents can recover compensation from insurance. However, this does not apply to drivers who are more than 50 percent at fault for the collision. For example, if the insurance adjusters decided that you were 20 percent at-fault and the other driver was 80 percent at-fault, then you could collect up to 80 percent from the other driver's insurance.
