Side Impact Car Accidents

Side impact collisions, also known as T-bone or broadside collisions, are the second most deadly type of car accident in the United States. Serious injury often results from these types of accidents. Dealing with a side impact collision can be a traumatic experience for anyone involved. A Bradenton side impact car accident attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve for your accident.

If you have been injured in a car accident, contact a Bradenton accident lawyer 941-893-5816 today to set up your free consultation.

Some of the most common causes of side impact collisions include disregard of right of way, failure to yield to oncoming traffic, failure to stop at a red light or stop sign, and failure to make a safe left turn.

For example, you are driving through a green light on and another driver hits you after running a red light. This would likely be a side impact collision. This type of accident is especially dangerous because you have minimal protection from the impact. When a vehicle hits you from the side, the door is the only thing between you and the other vehicle.

You may think it is easy to prove who was at fault, however any driver could claim that they had the right of way and argue that you were responsible for the accident. If you were a victim of a side impact collision, it is important that you discuss your accident with a Bradenton car accident attorney now.

On the scene of the accident it is important to contact the police. They will file a report, and in that report they might determine whom they believe was responsible for the accident. It is important that you do not admit any liability for the accident. If you are able, take photos of the scene and obtain contact information from any witnesses. The more information you can provide your Bradenton car accident lawyer, the better.

Client Reviews
Pallegar Law, always put my family first, their team always explained things in full detail, and got the very best results possible. They genuinely care. Our family will forever be grateful. Thank you. Dennis
He took me on and from the word go communicated everything in a timely and professional fashion about how everything is going to be played it; and then delivered word for word. The best part about them apart from their professionalism and efficiency would have to be their honesty which lets you entrust them, which in today's day and age is a rare virtue. Hemant
Excellent communication skills between the staff and client. I always felt I was in the know as to what to expect next. Ajay was up front on possible outcomes of the case and did not promise unrealistic results. Hope to not need them again, but definitely would recommend them. Steve
