Highway accidents can cause serious injuries and leave behind lots of damage. If you are injured in a car accident and believe that someone else is to blame, you should hold them accountable and sue for compensation. A San Antonio, Texas car accident lawyer can help you do that.

What Kind of Highway Accidents Happen Most Often?

There are many types of car crashes that can happen on the open road, but some types of highway accidents are more common than others. Some types of accidents we see often at our law firm include:

Rear-end collisions: One car crashes into the rear of another car, often because the rear driver did not leave enough stopping distance between vehicles. These can cause injuries like whiplash even at low speeds. Such accidents could account for around one-third of highway accidents in some years.

Side-impact accidents: Sometimes called a “t-bone” accident, these occur when one car collides with the side of another. These can cause some serious injuries because the sides of vehicles do not offer the most protection.

Chain reactions: Sometimes cars crash and get pushed into other vehicles, causing additional crashes and injuries.

Head-on collisions: These accidents are not that common, but they can be devastating because they often occur at high speeds. Fault is often easy to determine because one driver is going the wrong way.

What Injuries Are Often Suffered in Highway Accidents?

Injuries in highway accidents can be quite serious, resulting in hospital stays, days of missed work, and plenty of financial stress for victims and their families. A crash car can cause:

  • Broken bones
  • Organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Disfigurement

Some of these injuries could require continued, expensive treatment. Some of them could even be with a victim for life.

How Long Do Victims of Highway Accidents Have to Pursue Compensation?

Anyone who gets injured in highway accidents has two years to begin the legal process and sue for damages. Acting quickly ensures that you do not miss your chance to pursue compensation, and it can make it easier for your lawyer to secure crucial evidence and begin building your case.
