Side impact collisions are a very common type of accident. These collisions occur when the front of an oncoming vehicle strikes the side of your car, causing a strong impact. Side impact car crashes are responsible for around 9,000 deaths every year.
The only collisions that are more deadly than side impact collisions are head on crashes. In 2004 around 26% of all fatal car accidents and about 31% of the non-fatal car crashes were the results of side impact collisions.
Sometimes these accidents happen at intersections when someone fails to stop for a red light or stop at a stop sign. These types of accidents are certainly preventable.
If you are the victim of a car wreck it is your right to be compensated for your injuries. Side impact collisions are often serious, but even minor crashes can cause you chronic and debilitating injuries.
It’s important to start a vehicle lawsuit soon because the success of the case usually depends on the medical records registered from the accident. As more time passes, the connection becomes more and more difficult to prove.
Another important factor in a vehicle accident lawsuit is the statute of limitations and time constraints. This is why it is so important that you contact an experienced accident attorney who will be able to fight for your right as the victim of the car accident.
