The dangers of a sideswipe car accident

As a driver, you know that you can be involved in a motor vehicle accident at any point in time. You also know that there is more than one type of crash to be aware of.

A sideswipe accident occurs when two vehicles traveling in the same direction are involved in a collision. While some of these are nothing more than minor fender benders, others can be extremely serious.

Not only can the initial impact itself cause serious injuries, but this may also lead one or both vehicles to lose control, often ending up in another lane of travel.

Some of the most common causes of sideswipe accidents include drifting out of a lane, changing lanes or merging onto an interstate.

For example, a person may be texting when driving, leading him or her to drift out of their lane and into another vehicle. The same holds true when a person is too tired to be behind the wheel.

At our law firm, we know that sideswipe car accidents can be among the most dangerous types. When two vehicles collide in this manner, the end result can be serious injury, such as a concussion and broken bones, or even death.

If you are part of a sideswipe accident, move your vehicle to the side of the road and wait for help to arrive. Once you receive medical treatment, you can revisit the accident to get a better feel of what happened and how to proceed. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to seek compensation from the negligent party.
