How Do Side Impact Car Accidents Happen?

The most unfortunate aspect of sideswipe, T-bone or broadside accidents is that the majority are a result of driver error, which means that they are almost entirely preventable. In many cases, side impact crashes happen at intersections or in parking lots when one driver simply fails to drive cautiously and defensively. This includes:

If your accident is the result of carelessness or willful wrongdoing, a knowledgeable Seattle broadside car accident attorney can help build a strong case against the responsible party.

Unique Dangers of Side Impact Collisions

Most vehicles are equipped with seat belts, air bags, crumple zones and other safety features designed to withstand front or rear-end collisions. However, when it comes to side impact crashes, there is often little to shield the occupants along the left and right side of the vehicle other than the doors and windows.

According to reports conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), side impact crashes are more likely to cause injuries to the head, neck and spine than front impact or rear end collisions. Studies have found that the front of most automobiles can withstand at least five times more energy than the sides.

If you were injured in a side impact collision, you should contact a Seattle car accident lawyer immediately to ensure that your rights are protected. You may be entitled to compensation.
