Dedicated to Achieving the Outcome You Deserve

Getting behind the wheel of any vehicle can be both fun and dangerous. Accidents seem to be just around the corner, much more so when it comes to the highway, where speed and the number of vehicles around increase considerably.

As a driver, a highway implies much more concentration. It becomes necessary to keep an eye out for other drivers in many more lanes and to be aware of all that is happening around you at once. Being in a highway accident is generally associated with more serious damage and more severe injuries

Reasons Why Highway Accidents Happen So Frequently

Highway accidents are more frequent and likely to involve fatalities than those that happen on city roads possibly because people tend to speed much more. Other reasons are:

  • Driving drunk
  • Texting while driving
  • Driving drowsy or too tired
  • Tailgating
  • Road rage
  • Eating or drinking while driving
  • Changing lanes without paying attention
  • Not wearing seat belts
  • Failing to signal
  • An increased presence of motorcycles and bikes
  • Debris on the road

The times around rush hour also coincide with an increase in accidents. This may be because people try to drive faster to beat the traffic or the sheer number of cars around create more possibilities for a crash.

Highway Car Wrecks - Head-On Collisions

In cases where two cars drive into each other, it is easy to conclude that one of the drivers has lost control or, for some reason, is driving the wrong way. These highway accidents are particularly deadly because they involve both vehicle fronts, hitting the drivers directly.

Highway Car Wrecks - Side Swipe

These accidents simply refer to the fact that one car sideswiped the one next to it. Although both cars end up damaged, injuries are generally not severe. They may happen when one driver is switching lanes without looking at the cars around.

Highway Car Wrecks - Rear-End Collisions

Typical highway accidents, rear-end collisions happen when the car behind does not react quickly enough when traffic ahead slows down and rams into the vehicle in front. These accidents not only cause serious injuries, but they can also cause extensive damage to the vehicles involved.

Highway Car Wrecks - T-Bone Crashes

When a car turns while the other is going straight, a T-bone crash can occur. The forces involved in these types of accidents result in many fatal injuries. T-bone crashes on highways always involve great speeds as well, resulting in greater damage to the cars.

Actions to Take After a Highway Car Accident

Immediately after a highway car accident, you may feel unsure as to how to proceed. The first step you need to take is to see about your health. If you need to be transported to the nearest emergency room by ambulance, accept the ride. If you can stay at the scene of the accident, take the time to document it. Start by safely taking pictures of the vehicles involved, their damages, and their positions on the road. If there was anything that contributed to the crash, such as debris on the road, take pictures of that as well.

Exchange all pertinent information with the other driver and, if there are any witnesses, gather their testimonies and personal information in case you need to get in touch with them in the future.

Let your insurance company know what happened. Do not accept their offer until you reach out to the team of personal injury lawyers at Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P. C. We will fight to get you the compensation you deserve. Make an appointment today.
