Missouri Sideswipe Car Accident Attorneys

Side Impact Collision

A traffic accident can take place for any number of reasons, nearly all of which involve negligent action on the part of either a motorist or some other entity. Side impact collisions are especially dangerous because of the angle in which motorists find their vehicles struck, rendering those motorists susceptible to severe personal injury and even wrongful death. In all Missouri car accident cases, it is vital that the circumstances surrounding the accident are closely examined to determine why negligent action occurred and to whom that action can be attributed to.

Causes of Sideswipes in Missouri

Side impact collisions occur when two intersecting vehicles collide, meaning the front of one vehicle and either the driver’s side or passenger’s side of another vehicle strike each other. These collisions typically stem from the fact the one motorist chooses to break some sort of traffic law, and usually occur at intersections where vehicles are more likely to not fully adhere to traffic signals and signage that have been put in place to protect motorists. Dependent on the types of vehicles involved and the speeds at which they were each traveling, injuries sustained during side impact collisions can range from minor, such as bruises and lacerations, to major, such as broken bones, to catastrophic, which can include spinal, neck and brain injuries that could have irreparable effects on injured motorists.

Statistically, more than 8,000 people are killed by side impact collisions each year. In all such occurrences, it is absolutely essential that an experienced attorney closely examines the circumstances under which the crash took place, and holds negligent parties responsible for having caused the accident accountable for their actions. Injured motorists and the families of motorists who sustained wrongful death as the result of a side impact car collision have the legal right to seek compensatory damages from those individuals deemed responsible for the injuries and the reckless driving practice that led to the accident.
