Anaheim is the 10th most popular city in California and is the second largest city in Orange County. Anaheim is home to many theme parks, the convention center and is the home of two major sports teams the NHL’s Ducks and MLB’s Angels. With so many things to do and see, it’s natural for Anaheim residents to be involved in motor vehicle accidents. These accidents range widely in severity from the minor fender bender to the more devastating roll over however the most common types of car accidents include side-impact (t-bone) accidents, rear-end accidents, head-on collisions, and tire blowouts.
This type of accident usually occurs when a driver is running a stop sign or a red light and crashes into the side of another vehicle. Because there is no breaking or slowing down by the driver, these are classified as “unexpected” collisions and have the tendency to cause injuries to those involved.
This type of accident usually occurs when the driver misjudges the amount of time needed to slow down when approaching a stopped vehicle and frequently occurs at traffic signals, intersections or in other areas where traffic slows down unexpectedly like work zones.
This type of accidents happens on two-way roads with narrow lanes or when a car drifts into oncoming traffic. Although many just lead to minor car damage, if the collision occurs on highways at great speed the injuries can be devastating.
Tire blowouts are when a tire suddenly loses all air pressure causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle. There are several ways for a tire blowout to occur including but not limited to defective products, potholes, or old worn out tires.
