Sideswipe accidents occur when the sides of two vehicles impact. Sideswipe accidents can occur between vehicles that are traveling in the same direction, as well as those traveling in opposite directions. The initial impact may create sufficient force to cause serious injuries. There is also a possibility that the initial impact will cause one or both of the vehicles to veer into another car, a fence, a lamp post or some other object, causing further potential for injury.
Sideswipe accidents occur in situations such as:
- Merging onto a highway
- Changing lanes
- Drifting out of a lane
These accidents are often caused by driver carelessness. Improper lane changes and texting while driving are often causes of sideswipe accidents.
As with all accidents, proving the other driver's fault is the key to securing compensation from that driver's insurance company. We rely on accident reconstructionists and private investigators when necessary to help us build the strongest cases for our clients.
