Vehicle Spin Out Accident

When a car loses traction and spins, a driver may not know how to respond or not have time to respond to the situation. Vehicle spinouts can lead to serious accidents that result in injury to occupants and others on the road.

Why Do Cars Spin Out?

A vehicle can spin out for several reasons, which all typically involve the loss of tire traction on the road. Some common causes include:

  • Inclement Weather: Dangerous winter weather conditions can increase the chance of a vehicle spinout occurring. Rain, snow, sleet, and ice can make road surfaces slippery for motorists. “Black ice,” in particular, is dangerous to motorists because it is typically difficult to see. These conditions can cause a vehicle’s front tires to lose traction and lock up, making the back of the vehicle swing outward, resulting in a fishtailing effect.
  • Speeding: Speeding reduces a motorist’s reaction time, affecting the ability to brake safely. Traveling well above the speed limit can potentially contribute to a vehicle spinout if a driver has to brake suddenly.
  • Tailgating: Driving too closely behind another vehicle (“tailgating”) can also increase the likelihood of a vehicle spinning out. When the preceding car brakes, the motorist may need to steer away abruptly, resulting in a loss of control and/or spinning.
  • Mechanical Issues: Various mechanical and electrical issues that reduce traction can cause a car to spin out. This can include faulty brakes or a malfunctioning power steering system.

Vehicle Spin Out Crashes

Cars can spin either fully or partially on the road. Some vehicles may be more prone to losing control. For instance, a large truck may be more difficult to maneuver and be prone to spinning or jackknifing. In a vehicle spinout accident, a car may spin into objects such as guardrails or curbs, into ditches or off road areas, or into other vehicles. It is possible that a vehicle spinning out may also trigger secondary accidents or result in a multi-car pileup.

Those involved in a vehicle spinout crash can suffer severe, life-altering injuries. Injuries can include traumatic brain injuries, neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and lacerations.
