The consequences of unsafe lane changes can be severe, in part because these types of situations are so unexpected. In many cases, drivers don't have time to react or react instinctively by slamming on the brakes or by swerving, which can actually make the situation worse and can cause the accident to become a multiple vehicle collision. In these types of situations, there are many types of accidents that are possible, including:
- Rear end collisions
- Broadside crashes
- Front end crashes
- Rollover accidents
- Multiple vehicle accidents
Obviously, these types of crashes can be extremely serious and can lead to life changing, permanent injury.Medical Costs After Lane Change Accidents
Lane change accidents tend to be very serious. They often happen on highways where speed is a factor and they can include multiple vehicles or a high impact collision. As a result, these types of accidents tend to result in serious injuries, including:
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Brain injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Internal injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
The cost of these types of injuries can be catastrophic. It is not unusual for even a simple fracture to cost tens of thousands of dollars in lost income, medical testing, emergency room treatment, and more. A serious, permanent injury such as a brain injury can cost millions of dollars over the lifetime of an injured party as the person may need around-the-clock assisted living facility care, expensive medical treatments, expensive medical devices, nursing care, and more. While car accident insurance and medical coverage can help defray some of these costs, many patients and their families find that insurance often does not cover the full cost of injuries and families may be left paying tens of thousands of dollars or even more out-of-pocket.
