According to the United States Department of Energy Office of Health, Safety and Security, side impact collisions take more than 9,000 lives annually. Only head-on collisions kill more people on the roads each year. Most of these incidents occur at intersections as the result of driver negligence, such as running a red light.

We are here to hold guilty parties accountable for their actions and get you the monetary compensation you deserve.
The Basics of Side Impact Collisions
Usually occurring at intersections, a side impact, broadside or T-bone collision is especially dangerous because car doors and windows offer minimal protection to drivers and passengers. Even with proper air bags, a side impact may cause a number of injuries. The vehicle almost certainly will be damaged. If an oncoming automobile is running a red light, the velocity may be so high that the front of the car may even protrude into the interior of the victim's car.
