Common Causes of Side Impact Collisions
A majority of side impact accidents are caused by driver negligence. Drivers are either distracted, driving too aggressively, or simply neglecting the rules of the road. If the driver responsible for your accident was behaving recklessly, talk to an attorney about how to recover compensation for your injuries.
Side impact crashes are commonly caused by:
- Running a red light
- Not stopping at a stop sign
- Unsafe left turns
- Dangerous merging or lane changing
Auto Accident Lawyers Committed To Client Service
Many cars lack side door crumple-zone protections, which means they don't account for broadside or T-bone collisions. Side-impact crashes often result in:
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Pelvic fractures
The short time that it takes for a driver to navigate through an intersection is more than enough time for an SUV or commercial truck to T-bone a car. With air bags missing from the sides of cars and doors and windows that lack proper reinforcement, the person in the car which was struck could suffer fatal injuries.
