Side-impact collisions are accidents where the side of one or more cars is impacted. These are often called broadside collisions or T-Bone accidents, meaning that one car was hit on the side by the front or rear of another car. These collisions often occur when someone runs a stop sign or a red light. Side-swipe accidents are also common when a driver performs a lane change without checking their mirrors or blindspots. These crashes cause great forces that can lead to serious injuries. Many people believe that side-impact accidents leave minor damages and harm, but the reality is that these collisions are actually the most deadly for children.
Many of these accidents are caused by another driver’s negligence and can leave you very injured, putting you out of work and left with loads of medical bills. If this has happened to you or a loved one, book a free consultation with the Brooks Injury Law team to talk about getting you compensated.
