Side Impact Collision Accident Lawyer
Car passengers and Drivers often become injured in side-impact crashes by colliding with the person sitting next to them in the vehicle. This can occur by someone’s head coming in contact with another person within the vehicle. These types of injuries can be severe and even lift threatening. In a report from the IIHS journal, a British report on side impact wrecks found that when individuals did not wear their seat belt that they became “human missiles.” Many of these human missiles inflicted mortal injuries on fellow occupants.
Common Side-Impact Collision Injuries
Many of the injuries in side impact collisions occur to the head, neck, chest, back, abdomen, pelvis, legs, and arms. The injuries of a side impact collision are more severe in smaller or lighter weight vehicles. Many of these types of vehicles have less protection than larger SUV or Trucks. In recent years, the IIHS reports that automakers have made big strides in side protection in recent years by installing side airbags and strengthening the structures of vehicles. According to a study based out of the United Kingdom, after analyzing 140 side-impact accidents and the quantified injuries to drivers and passengers the most common injuries in side-impact accidents include:
