Side Impact Accidents Are Often Fatal

Law Offices of Victor Dante, PA | Side Impact Car Accident

Crash research and accident data continues to show that side impact accidents or T-bone accidents are often fatal. In fact, 18% of all fatal car accidents are side impact crashes. These horrific crashes occur most often at intersections when one car fails to recognize another vehicle approaching. The result is a crash that occurs at a vehicle’s most vulnerable spot—its’ side, where there is little reinforcement or framing.

Even when a broadside blow or T-bone collision does not result in a fatality or wrongful death, it usually results in serious injuries to all occupants involved. In particular, the passengers and driver of the car that is broadsided are the most vulnerable to serious injuries, including:

Side impact crashes usually occur at intersections, stop signs, and stop lights. Speeding drivers who are trying to “make” the light may plow into another vehicle, drugged or drunk drivers may fail to recognize a stop sign in time, or distracted drivers on cellphones may not realize the light has turned red.

When another driver has caused your injury, they can—and should be held accountable. You will undoubtedly need compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and decreased quality of life.
