Attorney for Side-Impact Accidents in the San Fernando Valley
SFV Car Accident Lawyer - (818) 783-8446
Whether you are driving just to the grocery store or on a long road trip,
it is every driver's responsibility to drive safely and responsibly.
However, many drivers fail to obey the traffic laws and in doing so, they
are being negligent and disregarding the safety of others out on the road.
Whether they were
texting and driving,
driving under the influence, speeding, or running through a red light, they could be held liable if
they crash and injure someone else.
One common type of accident that we hear about here at the firm is a T-Bone
accident (or side-impact accident). This type of accident is where the
front of one car plows in the side of another car. Due to the nature of
T-Bone accidents, there is a much higher risk of injury and loss of life
because the side of the vehicle does not provide nearly as much protection
and it could collapse and crush the driver or passenger inside. If you
or a loved one has been involved in a T- Bone collision, speak with a
car accident attorney at our San Fernando Valley office right away.

Common Side-Impact Accident Injuries
With T-Bone accidents, there is a blunt force to the side of the vehicle
which can cause a number of different injuries including:
Back/Spinal Cord Injuries- Due to the force in the crash, the driver and the passengers are at risk
of a sprained or broken back,
spinal cord injury, a herniated disk and things of that nature. Back and spinal cord injuries
could ultimately lead to paralysis such as paraplegia or quadriplegia.
Neck/Whiplash Injuries- With side-impact crashes, the driver and the passengers in the vehicle
will experience a harsh and sudden jerk and this type of movement can
easily lead to whiplash, a neck sprain or a broken neck.
Head/Brain Injuries- When the front of one vehicle strikes the side of another vehicle, it
could cause the driver or passengers to hit their heads on the car door
or on other interior surfaces of the car. This could lead to traumatic
brain injuries and could result in a coma.
Broken Bones- When a vehicle is hit from the side, there is not much protection or
cushion to soften the blow. Many times the occupants are crushed and experience
serious fractures to their arms, legs, hips or ribs.
Serious Cut and Lacerations- When a car is hit on the side, the windows are usually the first things
to break and the shattered glass goes flying throughout the vehicle. This
could mean serious cuts and lacerations for the driver or passengers.
