Side Collision Accident Lawyer

A side collision, also known as a T-bone or broadside accident, occurs when the front of one vehicle crashes into the side of another vehicle at a perpendicular or near-perpendicular angle. This type of accident poses significant dangers due to the unique dynamics and vulnerabilities involved, and the consequences can be severe for those involved.

What Makes Side Collisions So Dangerous?

Side Collision Accident Lawyer

This type of auto accident results in severe injuries and damages, due to the following factors:

Limited protection

The side of a vehicle offers less protection to occupants compared to the front or rear. There are fewer safety features and crumple zones in this area, making occupants more vulnerable to direct impact forces.

Inadequate time to react

Side collisions often happen suddenly, leaving drivers and passengers with very little time to react or take evasive actions. This lack of warning can contribute to the severity of the accident.

Close proximity to occupants

Side collisions bring the point of impact dangerously close to the vehicle’s occupants. This increases the risk of injuries, as there is minimal distance between the impact and the passengers.

Absence of safety features

Many vehicles have advanced safety features primarily designed for frontal and rear-end collisions. However, these features might offer limited protection during a side collision, leading to more severe injuries.

Side impact airbags

While some vehicles are equipped with side-impact airbags, they may not fully prevent injuries, especially in high-speed collisions. The side structure of the vehicle is generally less able to absorb the impact force effectively.

Risk of rollovers

The force of a side collision can destabilize a vehicle, increasing the risk of it rolling over, especially if the striking vehicle is larger. Rollovers can result in more severe injuries and damage.

Intersection hazards

Side collisions frequently occur at intersections when one vehicle fails to yield or runs a red light. Intersections are high-traffic areas with potential for multiple vehicles to be involved, increasing the complexity of the accident.

Occupant injuries

Occupants of the impacted vehicle can suffer a range of injuries, including head and brain injuries, spinal injuries, broken bones, and internal organ damage.
