Types of Fatal Car Accidents
No matter how your loved one’s fatal car accident occurred, Zanes Law will fight for your rights and hold the responsible parties accountable. We have helped many clients in the Phoenix area with wrongful death cases stemming from car accidents. We want to put our knowledge and immense resources to work for you.
We have helped clients whose loved ones were killed in the following types of accidents and more:
A head-on collision is one of the most dangerous types of car accidents because of the double-impact effect. Colliding head-on at 60 miles per hour with another vehicle also traveling at 60 miles per hour is similar to running into a stationary object at 120 miles per hour. Many of the fatal accidents we see in Phoenix result from head-on collisions.
If your loved one died in a head-on car accident, the Zanes Law team will investigate and hold the other driver accountable. Common reasons for head-on collisions include:
- Driving under the influence
- Distracted driving (e.g., texting)
No matter how the collision occurred, our team will investigate, gather evidence, and fight for a fair settlement.
A side-impact collision occurs when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of another vehicle. These types of accidents, also known as “T-bone” collisions, are particularly dangerous for the car that is the top of the T.
Our team will investigate your loved one’s side-impact collision and go after the at-fault driver for damages.
A rear-impact collision, in which one vehicle strikes another vehicle from the back, can be fatal for drivers and occupants in either vehicle, especially when the rear vehicle is traveling at a high rate of speed at the moment of impact.
Accidents involving 18-wheelers have a higher fatality rate than standard car accidents because big trucks have a much greater capacity for destruction than any other vehicle on the road.
If your loved one died in a truck accident, we will take action against the driver as well as the trucking company.
Drunk Driving Accidents
The statistics are clear on drunk driving—it increases the chances of a fatal accident by a substantial margin. If there is evidence that the other driver in your loved one’s fatal accident was under the influence at the time of the accident, Zanes Law will aggressively pursue them for damages.
