4 Of The Most Dangerous Types Of Accidents

Any type of car accident can be deadly. Some types of accidents, though, carry a higher risk than others. They are more likely to cause serious injuries and fatalities. You should contact a qualified auto accident lawyer if you were involved in one of these accidents on FDR Dr, Harlem River Dr, or any other roadway in Riverdale, Woodlawn, or surrounding areas.

Head-On Collisions

Of all types of car accidents, a head-on collision is the most dangerous. If your car and another car are traveling towards each other, the crash impact is double your actual speed. If you are driving at 40 mph, for example, the impact is as if you are driving at 80 mph. With this fact alone, it is not surprising that head-on collisions are the most fatal type of accident.

T-Bone Accidents

This type of accident usually occurs at an intersection, such as Pelham Pkwy and Williamsbridge Rd. It can also occur if a driver is coming out of a parking lot, an exit, or a driveway, and does not pay attention to cars on the main roadway. If he hits the side of your car, there is nothing to protect you from the impact and injuries could be quite severe.


A pile-up can occur anywhere, at any time, but weather conditions and speeding are often contributing factors. You can be involved in a pile-up on the RFK Bridge, Pelham Parkway, the I-87 interstate, or any other roadway in the Bronx.

While a driver or passenger can be killed in the crash, there is an additional danger in pile-up accidents. As you may not be able to get out of your car, you may also be at risk from an explosion or fire.


Any type of vehicle can roll over, but larger vehicles have a greater risk. Rollovers are often caused by drivers that try to avoid hazards in the roadway, turning too fast, and weather conditions that make driving unsafe.

Rolling over is only one reason this type of accident is so dangerous. As it is difficult to get out of your car, there is little you can do if someone crashes into your car or your car bursts into flames while you are trapped inside.

Regardless of the type of accident you were involved in, you need an auto accident lawyer. You want to know what to do about expensive medical bills, and what to do about your damaged car. You also want to be aware of your legal rights when the accident involved another driver.
