Causes of Side Impact Crashes

There are 2 main categories of side impact accidents: sideswipes and broadside collisions. Sideswipes typically occur between vehicles that are traveling the same direction. The driver’s side of one vehicle crashes into the passenger’s side of another while both are moving and can leave anything from a small scratch to extensive frame damage. They may even push the victim into another driver, resulting in a chain of serious injuries.

Sideswipe collisions often happen due to:

  • Improper lane changes
  • Improper merging behaviors
  • Failing to yield right of way
  • Drifting into another lane because of fatigue or distraction

Broadside collisions, also known as “T-bone” crashes, happen when the front of one vehicle hits the side of another, causing the shape of a T. This type of side impact collision typically occurs when 2 vehicles enter an intersection at the same time.

Broadside collisions may be caused by:

  • Failing to yield right of way when driving through an intersection
  • Failing to pay attention to or obey street signs and traffic signals
  • Failing to check for oncoming traffic before turning into an intersection
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding or reckless driving

Accidents can happen so fast that, even if you know you weren’t at fault, it can be hard to tell what was. Don’t let an insurer take advantage of your uncertainty: Call our team in to protect your right to compensation.
