A head-on collision is a direct impact to the front of a vehicle by another vehicle. Head on collisions can be some of the most traumatic car accidents and can cause severe injuries.

You may hear rear-end accidents often referred to as "fender-benders" because they commonly occur at low speeds. Although we often call rear-end collisions "fender-benders," that is not to say that they cannot cause serious injuries.
Side-impact collisions are accidents where the side of one or more cars is impacted. These are often called broadside collisions or T-Bone accidents, meaning that one car was hit on the side by the front or rear of another car.

Common Causes

Distracted Driving

Texting, eating, doing hair or makeup, reaching for things in the back seat, etc. are all contributing factors to car crashes nationally. Any action that requires you take your eyes off the road or hands off the wheel is considered a distraction to your driving. Using your phone to text or place calls is now illegal in the state of Georgia thanks to the Hands-Free Act. This law was designed to decrease the statistics surrounded by distracted driving and car accidents. For more on the Georgia Hands-Free act, visit headsupgeorgia.com
Drunk Driving

Drunk or impaired driving is one of the leading causes of roadway accidents not only in Georgia, but all across the nation. In 2016, impaired drivers were responsible for nearly 400 car crash fatalities, according to the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety.
Speeding

Exceeding the speed limit is yet another common cause of car accidents on our Georgia roadways. There was a 25% increase in speed related deaths in 2016 as compared to 2014 throughout the state of Georgia.
Drowsy Driving

Drowsy Driving is found most common between the hours of 9 PM and 6 AM according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The NHTSA did reveal, however, that drowsy driving decreased by 3.5% in 2016 compared to the previous year.
Roadway Hazards

Many roadway hazards can be created from construction zones, uneven lanes, potholes, and other debris. All of these factors can easily cause a car accident, especially if you are not prepared to encounter such hazards.
