Side-Impact Collisions

Give Our Greenville Car Accident Attorneys a Call!

One of the most terrifying types of car accident is the side-swipe collision (or T-bone accident). These happen when one vehicle is struck on its side or near-side, at any angle other than directly in front or directly behind. It can be incredibly easy to be caught by surprise when a car strikes the driver’s side or your passenger side with full force. These can often be dangerous because not all vehicles are equipped with side airbags.

If you or a loved one was harmed in a side-impact collision, don’t hesitate to give our skilled Greenville personal injury attorneys a call. We can help you recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering.

Where Do Side-Impact Collisions Most Occur?

Side-impact collisions often happen at intersections and in parking lots, where cars usually travel perpendicular to one another. They typically occur as the result of one of the drivers failing to yield a right-of-way or running a stop sign or stop light. Likewise, side-swiping can also happen if a vehicle swerves out of control and slams into a solid object or another car. The severity of the damage and injury will depend on the type of vehicle struck, what the vehicle is hit by, the safety features involved, and the speed at which the T-bone occurred.

Injuries in Side-Swipe Accidents

About a fourth of all passenger vehicle occupant accident deaths in the country happen because of side-impact collisions. This high fatality rate is because side impacts often come with less protective measures than crashes affecting the front of a car. For example, airbags in the steering wheel are mandatory for all new vehicles sold in the United States, but side-impact airbags are still optional for manufacturers to install.
