Understanding the anatomy of a side-impact collision

Any car accident in Dallas has the potential to cause severe injuries for drivers and passengers. However, a side-impact collision has the potential to cause devastation, particularly for those on the side stuck by another vehicle. We know that there were nearly 250,000 total traffic crash injuries during the latest reporting year in Texas. Some are the most devastating injuries that our Dallas car accident lawyers see involve side-impact collisions.

These incidents are often called “T-bone” accidents, and they can have a serious impact on the human body. Consider the fact that vehicles are primarily designed to sustain an impact from the back or front. This is the area a vehicle that has the most distance between passengers any potential hazards on the roadway. However, there is not much distance between vehicle passengers in another vehicle in the event a side-impact collision occurs.

Despite major safety improvements made to newer vehicles, the human body is very likely to experience a traumatic injury due to a side-impact collision. It is not uncommon for our Dallas side-impact car accident lawyers to help clients who have sustained the following injuries:

  • Traumatic brain injuries or open head drama caused by a person’s head violently striking a car frame or window
  • Spinal cord, whiplash, or other soft tissue injuries due to the impact
  • Internal bleeding or organ damage
  • Dislocated or broken bones
  • Severe lacerations
  • Deep bone bruising

How do side-impact collisions occur?

Some of the most common causes side-impact collisions include the following:

  • Drivers running a red light or stop sign
  • Distracted driving behavior (texting, talking, watching videos, etc.)
  • Intoxicated drivers disregarding traffic laws

Side-impact collision severity is directly linked to speed. The faster the impacting vehicle is traveling at the time of the incident, the more serious the injuries will likely be.
