While not every car accident ends in tragedy, many do. Side impact collisions, or those in which the sides of one or more involved vehicles are impacted, have exceptionally high rates of fatality and major injury. Following your side or angle impact collision, you need time to recover from your injuries and money to cover medical expenses, automobile repairs, lost wages, and other expensive accident-related costs. Recovering from injuries you may have received in a side or angle impact collision while trying to get the insurance company to give you the benefits to which you may be entitled to under the law can be difficult. That’s why you should get the help of an experienced North Carolina or South Carolina personal injury attorney like those at Grimes Teich Anderson who can make sure your rights and interests are protected.
Side impact collisions are usually the result of a failure to yield the right of way at intersections, caused by distracted or hurried driving. Right angle collisions (also known as broadside or T-bone collisions) are highly deadly, and though many safety technologies now seek to cut down on these accidents’ capacity to destroy lives, those seated on the side struck in a broadside collision face severe harm. For example, in North Carolina in 2011, over 29% of car accident passengers who were killed lost their lives in broadside accidents.
If you were injured in a side impact or angle impact collision because another party was negligent, reckless, or careless, you may have a right to compensation for your costs and injuries. These may include and are not necessarily limited to medical costs, the price of car repairs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
