Representation for T-Bone and Broadside Car Accident Victims
Were you involved in a side-impact crash? Side-impact crashes are more commonly referred to as t-bone or broadside accidents. They can occur in many different situations. Who is at fault largely depends on what was happening immediately before the accident. If the wreck happened at an intersection, for instance, one factor would be who had the green light.
The Impact of a Side Collision
A side-impact crash can be very, very dangerous. Nothing but a door protects the passenger from the other vehicle. One in four car crashes are side-impact related and they are the most deadly type of accident for child passengers. In a front-end or rear-end accident, there are several feet of steel, seats, bumpers, engine, and the trunk to protect you. The front and back areas of the car are commonly referred to as the crumple zones. With a side-impact crash, there is no crumple zone. These crashes can cause serious injuries.

Common Causes of Side Impact Collisions
Other causes of action may exist for your case such as reckless driving, distracted driving, or DWI. It is important that you write down everything that happened and take pictures of the location and damage to the vehicles. Many vehicles involved in a side-impact crash are deemed a total loss and are towed away from the scene. Find out where the vehicle is taken. This information can be obtained from the police, the tow truck driver, or the insurance company. This information should be given to the attorney during your consultation. Get a copy of the police report to take to your consultation. A police report can help your attorney determine if other causes of action exist.
Claims adjusters will weigh many factors when determining the legitimacy of your claim. One of those factors is how soon you received medical treatment after the accident. They will also look at your medical history to determine if your injuries existed before the side-impact crash. Do not sign anything before you speak with a lawyer. Be prepared to sign releases for the law office to obtain all of your medical and treatment records in relation to your accident.
