Causes of Side Impact Crashes

In most cases, driver inattention or negligence is the contributing factor in side impact accidents. Injuries and damages sustained as a result of a collision often lead to expensive medical bills and severe loss of wages from being unable to work. If someone else is at fault for the collision, you may be entitled to recover those damages.

Common causes of side impact collisions include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Fatigued driving
