Every year there are millions of car accidents in the United States and right here in Colorado. These include many different types of accidents, each with its own set of problems and possible complications. One very common type of accident is the side-impact collision. The most common form of side-impact accident may be the t-bone collision, in which one vehicle drives head-on into the side of another.
In many cases, t-bones occur when a driver either fails to stop for a stop sign or red signal, or stops but then proceed into the intersection without yielding the right-of-way to a vehicle on a through street or with a green signal. In either case, the accident would be considered to be caused by that driver’s negligence. In some cases, a side-impact accident may result from inclement weather or icy conditions causing one vehicle to slide into another. And just like any other type of accident, many side-impact collisions are caused by a driver being distracted from the road. If you have been injured in a side-impact collision you should speak with a Denver auto accident attorney as soon as possible; the medical and financial consequences of any car accident can be serious, and complicated.
In many cases, side-impact collisions result in significant injury or even death. In many cases, a vehicle may drive directly into a car door where a passenger is sitting; the force of impact in such a case can cause major brain or spinal injury as the body is very suddenly jerked hard in very different direction than it was moving. The ligaments and muscles in the neck may be strained resulting in soft tissue damage and whiplash injury or slipped discs in the spine. Also, the potential for traumatic brain injury is very high. In addition to these potentially debilitating injuries, there is also a tremendous potential for broken bones and the damage to abdominal organs. Many vehicles these days come equipped with side-impact air bags, but that may not be enough to prevent catastrophic injury to say nothing of damage to the vehicle.
