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.
Side-swipe accidents can cause the following:
