Common Car Accident Injuries
More than 4,600 hospital admissions in Ontario were related to motor vehicle collisions of which 73 percent warranted some type of procedural or therapeutic intervention.
In most cases, those injury victims often require long periods of time to recover from their injuries, which often means being unable to work and unable to provide for their families and loved ones.
At the law offices of Greg Monforton and Partners, our lawyers and support staff understand the hardships that accident injury victims often need to endure during the recovery process and can help to fight for financial compensation for those losses.
With this in mind, some of the most common car crash injuries include:
One of the most suffered types of injuries was fractures which include head, lower limb, upper limb, and neck and trunk injuries. Some people may also experience injuries as a result of safety equipment used such as breathing problems brought on by airbag deployment or internal organ damage caused by a seat belt.
If you are involved in a London auto accident it is important to seek medical attention right away as some signs and symptoms of injuries are not easily visible while others take hours to develop. Seeking treatment can decrease the chances of suffering from permanent or a life-threatening injury.
Common Causes of London Auto Accidents
When determining who may be at-fault for a car collision one of the most important factors to take into consideration is if a driver acted negligently.
In fact, the legal definition of negligence is the failure to use reasonable care which can often occur when behind the wheel.
Some common causes of London auto accidents include:
In Ontario one of the most common causes of car wrecks was driver inattentiveness which resulted in more than 40,000 collisions. According to the MTO this means a driver was operating a vehicle without due care including changing radio stations while driving, eating, and even reading.
Types of Auto Collisions
No two car accidents are alike which is why many organizations and local administrations gather information about accidents after they happen, which they then analyze to help make automotive designs stronger and safer for both drivers and their passengers.
In fact, some automakers are now using pedestrian-friendly bumpers that are designed to help absorb the impact of a collision that involves a person hitting the vehicle directly.
Such information can provide an insight into why collisions happen, how they happen, and what vehicles are more likely to be involved in certain types of accidents.
Some types of auto collisions include:
Multi-vehicle wrecks, also known as pile-ups, are also a common type of London auto- accident and typically involve multiple motor vehicles. In 2013 one of the deadliest pile-ups occurred on Highway 401 and involved 50 vehicles.
