Side Collisions and Lane Change Accidents
Los Angeles Car Accident Lawyer
Side collisions often occur when a vehicle changes lanes into another vehicle. However, a side-impact car accident may also occur in an intersection, when a vehicle runs a red light and collides with the side of a vehicle traveling through the intersection. Side collisions may also occur when a car is pulling from a driveway or side street, or turning left. These may involve collisions between the sides of two vehicles, or the front or back of one vehicle and the side of another.

Injuries in Side-Impact Crashes
Depending on the accident, a side-impact crash may cause serious injury to the driver or passenger of either vehicle. The vehicle hit in the side may sustain serious damage and will put the person on the affected side of the car at risk of crush injury. The driver or passenger of the vehicle that collides into the side of another vehicle may be at risk of any of a number of injuries, including whiplash, spinal cord injury, and more. All persons involved in the accident may sustain physical and/or emotional trauma.
The consequences of a car accident involving a side collision may be serious. A victim will face the stress of dealing with insurance claims, medical bills, and possible financial difficulties from missed work. Find out how a lawyer at our firm can help to alleviate some of these problems.
