Side Impact Car Accident

Helping seriously injured victims of side impact car accidents across Florida, including Fort Lauderdale, Naples, Fort Myers, Miami, Plantation, the Palm Beaches and the Florida Keys.

Florida Side Impact Car Accident Attorney

Florida side impact car accident lawyer Joseph Lipsky is well aware that some of the most common and deadly car accidents in Miami, Naples, Pembroke Pines and Fort Lauderdale are when one car slams into another at an intersection on the driver or passenger’s side door. These types of crashes are referred to as side impact or T-bone collisions. As the majority of side impact car accidents involve a negligent driver who runs a stop sign or red light, the forces involved in these types of crashes are substantial and cause life altering injuries.

When a vehicle fails to slow down before slamming into the side of another car, the energy from the striking car is immediately transferred to the driver and passengers of that vehicle. For more than 25 years, Florida car accident lawyer Joseph Lipsky has helped seriously injured victims of car accidents in communities such as Plantation, Fort Lauderdale, Homestead and Key West which were caused by careless teenagers. While newer vehicles are designed to attempt to dissipate this energy transfer with side-curtain airbags, the dynamic transfer of energy can still cause:

  • Spinal fractures
  • Broken ribs
  • Fractured pelvis
  • Broken arms and legs

A secondary effect of a side impact car accident is that the force of the collision often prevents the struck vehicle’s doors from opening, requiring the use of the jaws of life. Those forces have a greater impact when a larger vehicle strikes a smaller vehicle, and worst of all, when a motorcycle is struck. Although side impact car accidents only make up 20% of all car accidents, they are responsible for more than 1/3 of all car accident fatalities.

In addition to the serious injuries they cause, these side impact accidents result in innocent accident victims incurring substantial medical bills, the financial difficulties of lost time from work and a life time of physical and emotional pain and suffering.

Be assured that when side impact crashes happen, the insurance companies will respond quickly by sending investigators to the accident scene and by taking statements of any witnesses. But their actions are not to help you; rather, they are trying to protect themselves. As a result, due to the rapid moving nature of post side impact car accident investigations, it is imperative to hire an experienced attorney with the expertise and resources to find evidence which will prove your case and maximize your financial recovery. Because we help all seriously injured Florida car accident victims on a contingent fee basis, you will not owe us anything unless we get you paid and compensated first.
