Injured in a Side Impact Crash? You Focus On Recovering, We'll Fight for Compensation

Side Impact Crashes

Accident Injury Claims in Atlanta, Georgia

Side impact car accidents can be among the most deadly due to the fact that only a narrow band of steel protects occupants from the impact of another vehicle. Side impact crashes are also known as "T-bone crashes," or broadsiding.

They occur when the front or rear of one vehicle crashes into the side of another, hitting the front, rear, or both passenger doors. If you've been harmed or have lost a loved one in a side impact car crash in the greater Atlanta area, you can rely on an Atlanta car accident attorney at Kalka & Baer, LLC.

Impact of Side Collisions

Because of the fact that a side impact affords you little protection in the way of steel casing, these types of car accidents can be extremely serious. They are especially deadly for children, most often resulting in head trauma. One in three child fatalities caused by collisions stem from side impact crashes due to injuries to the head. All injuries and deaths from side impacts can be reduced or avoided by side impact air bags, available on newer vehicle models.

Many factors can play a part in the severity of a side impact collision, including the speed at which the vehicles are traveling, safety features on both vehicles, how much the vehicles weigh and how they were built. For instance, crumple zones on both the striking vehicle and the struck vehicle can absorb some of the impact. In the most severe side impact accidents, vehicles can roll over, spin out, or be crushed together, leaving occupants trapped inside.
