Typically, automobile damages and occupant injuries tend to be more severe in T-bone collisions, but the severity will depend on the part of the vehicle that is struck, safety features, and the speed and weight of each vehicle.

About Broadside Collisions

According to the United States Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), broadside collisions are responsible for more than 9,000 fatalities every year throughout the United States. These accidents may occur virtually anywhere: in intersections, parking lots, and when vehicles turn across traffic.

Of course, these accidents are typically caused by the negligent actions of another driver.

Common causes of broadside collisions include:

In some instances, side-impact collisions become hit and run accidents, if one of the parties leaves the scene without exchanging contact and insurance information with the other driver. These accidents are also the cause of many different types of injuries.
