Helping West Virginia Victims Of All Types Of Car Accidents Seek Justice
Car accidents happen in many different ways. But all crash types share a common factor – the damage they inflict on victims’ lives. At The Masters Law Firm, L.C., our car accident attorneys have seen it all. We’ve helped countless people in West Virginia involved in all types of accidents pick up the pieces and get on the road to recovery.
As the same suggests, multi-vehicle accidents are when three or more vehicles are involved in a single accident. Often, these accidents happen as a chain reaction to a single catalyst. These catalysts could be driver error, vehicle malfunctions, weather conditions or road hazards.
For example, one driver hits a patch of ice on the highway and spins out, causing the vehicles behind them to swerve, which makes the cars behind them swerve, continuing until there’s a massive pileup on the road.
The damage and injuries resulting from multi-vehicle accidents can be catastrophic. Determining fault in these accidents can also be difficult due to the number of drivers involved. Despite the challenges these accidents present, our car wreck lawyers have obtained successful results in many of these cases.
A hit-and-run accident is when a driver hits another vehicle and flees the scene. Because there’s very little time for victims to take down the car’s details and no contact or insurance information to go off of, it might seem like you’re on your own after a hit-and-run. However, our car accident lawyers know how to get the information our clients need to hold at-fault drivers legally accountable, even if they flee the scene.
A T-bone collision is when a driver hits the side of another vehicle. Depending on the point of impact, speed and size of the vehicle that hits you, the damage and injuries can be catastrophic.
Rear End Accidents
Rear end collisions are the most common type of accident. While many rear-end collisions are minor bumps, those at higher speeds have severe aftereffects. Back and spinal cord injuries are particularly grave injuries that can result from these accidents.
Rollover accidents occur when a vehicle flips on its side or upside down. Depending on the force of the collision, cars can flip multiple times, increasing the likelihood of the driver or passengers getting ejected. Even if the vehicle only flips on its side or upside down, the people inside can get pinned. Due to the nature of these accidents, acute injuries often result.
