Sideswipe Collisions

Fault in a sideswipe collision can be difficult to prove, and your insurance company will not go to the trouble of maximizing your compensation. You might find that your insurance company will work to shift blame to the other driver, so that it can be cleared of significant liabilities and reduce its exposure to making damage and loss payments to you or the other driver. However, this does not mean that your insurance company is really your advocate or that you will be able to get the compensation you deserve from the other driver's insurance provider.

Causes of Sideswipe Accidents

While unexpected lane changes are the most common direct cause of sideswipe collisions, other contributing factors have also been implicated in these accidents:

Catastrophic injuries may require extended recovery periods in and out of the hospital. Working with an experienced car accident lawyer can help you and your family achieve full and fair compensation for serious injuries and losses.

Common Recoverable Injuries in Sideswipe Accidents

The severity of injuries in a sideswipe crash is typically dependent on the speed of the vehicles and the surroundings in which the accident took place. Common injuries include:

  • Whiplash and other neck and back trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries, including concussions
  • Damage to internal organs

If one of the vehicles in the accident is significantly larger and heavier than the other, the damage to the smaller car or truck and its occupants can be proportionately more severe.

At Burwell Nebout, our team of injury lawyers can take on transportation companies and insurance companies to ensure that you receive the settlement you deserve for your losses and damages. We will fight for you and provide you peace of mind while we work proactively to hold negligent parties accountable.
