  1. The car you are travelling in being hit from behind by another vehicle.
  2. The driver of yo vehicle causing the accidents by their negligent driving.
  3. The car you are travelling in being hit by a car emerging from a side road or pulling out when it is unsafe to do so.
  4. A head-on collision caused by either the driver of your vehicle or an oncoming vehicle crossing the centre lines or negligently overtaking another vehicle.
