Car Accidents - Side Impact Collisions

Side impact collisions are very serious and common accidents. They are responsible for approximately 8,500 deaths per year. A side impact collision occurs when the front of an oncoming vehicle strikes the side of your vehicle. This is also known as being t-boned. Most of these incidents occur at intersections as the result of a failure to yield at a stop sign or red light.
The seriousness of side impact collisions depends on several factors, including the speed and weight of the oncoming vehicle, and where that oncoming vehicle collides with yours. Fatalities due to side impact collisions can be reduced when a vehicle is equipped with side airbags. It is important to understand that children under the age of 12 should not ride in the front seat. The power with which an airbag deploys can cause death to a child, regardless of the severity of the impact.

  1. Car accidents are confusing and complex, and you should never admit fault because after an investigation into the car accident circumstances, it may be shown that you were not actually at fault. By admitting fault, you may not be able to receive the appropriate compensation.

  2. The number of cars on the road is increasing each year, and, unfortunately, so is the number of car accidents. Many people die as a result of car accidents, with many more receiving personal injuries. These injuries and deaths leave the victims and their families devastated, shocked, and often not knowing what to do next. Even though victims of car accidents are typically extremely traumatized, there are important steps victims need to take to ensure they receive the monetary compensation they deserve. You need to be comfortable with your accident solicitor and be able to speak freely and comfortably with them. With a comfortable, professional relationship established, a successful accident claim settlement will be within your reach. Visit Work Accidents for more information.
