Most Dangerous Maryland Auto Accidents to be Involved In

By Alpert Schreyer on May 25, 2012

Being in any type of auto accident is a serious and dangerous incident that puts all involved at risk of being injured in some manner. Even small fender benders have the chance of injuring vehicle occupants’ backs or necks due to the sudden and violent nature of collisions. However, there are some forms of accidents that naturally put victims at a higher risk than others.

While not all of these crashes are guaranteed to end in serious injury or fatalities, it is important to be aware of these types of accidents while driving on Maryland’s roads.

Vehicle Rollovers

When a vehicle loses control, typically due to some form of tire malfunction, it may tip over and begin to roll. While the rolling itself may slam occupants into the sides of the vehicle and other objects inside, the most common causes of death in Maryland rollover crashes are due to the vehicle colliding with another object or occupants being ejected from the car. Without a seat belt, ejections become extremely likely in this form of crash.

Head-On Collisions

The severe nature of a head-on crash can easily result in serious and even deadly injuries. The effects of the crash on the bodies of occupants can be some of the most serious of all crashes and may result in vehicle ejection. The chances of a fatality in this type of crash is much more likely than a rear-end collision.

Road Departure

When a vehicle leaves the road, countless types of collisions can occur, all of which depend on the environment surrounding the area. Vehicles may slide down an embankment, enter a body of water, or collide with a building. When on a city street, the chances of a pedestrian collision are much greater. All of these types of crashes can easily turn deadly.

Highly Dangerous Crash Factors

Even the most basic types of collisions can become extremely deadly when the responsible driver is distracted or intoxicated by drugs or alcohol. This will keep him or her from reacting properly to dangers and lessening the damage of a crash. Additionally, the faster the car is traveling, the greater the impact will be, and breaking speed limits can result in some of the most serious crashes. Additionally, all of these factors may result in the above-discussed accidents.

Finding Compensation for Your Accident Damages

If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, you deserve to hold the at-fault party or parties accountable for your loss.
