A side impact collision occurs when the front of an oncoming vehicle hits the side of another vehicle. This is sometimes referenced as being “T-boned.” Many of these types of accidents occur when someone fails to observe the traffic signs or a red light. This type of accident is not only serious, but also very common.
The speed, weight of the vehicles involved and location of the impact are some of the factors that will determine the severity of the impact. However, there are numerous injuries that can be suffered as a result.
Contacting a legal professional is the important first step in starting the process of establishing medical coverage to pay for the hospital, doctors and therapy and to collect compensation for injuries or damages based on the specific facts and circumstances of your accident.
