Side-Impact Accidents

Side-impact collisions are vehicle crashes where the side of one or more vehicles is impacted. These crashes often occur at intersections, in parking lots or when two vehicles pass on a multi-lane road. Due to a lack of space allotted to absorb the force of impact and protect the passenger, these car accidents can often be deadly or result in severe injury.
There are a number of occurrences that can lead to a side-impact crash, but some of the most common reasons are:
·      Negligent Drivers
·      Failure to stop at a red light or stop sign
·      Ignoring traffic signs
·      Speeding through a yellow light
·      Texting while driving
·      Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (D.U.I)
These types of accidents can be life changing or even deadly. The most common injuries from side-impact collisions are:
·      Head Trauma
·      Brain Injury
·      Neck & Back Injury
·      Spinal Cord Damage
·      Internal Organ Damage
·      Cuts & Bruises
·      Burns
Side-impact crashes usually result in serious property damage and severe injuries to the driver and passengers. As with all car accident lawsuits, the most important key in winning a side-impact collision accident case is the ability to prove negligence and that it resulted in sustained injuries and vehicular damage.
