A side-impact car crash can occur for a variety of reasons. When these accidents occur due to another driver’s negligence, they could result in a significant financial settlement.

Side-impact collisions can happen when you least expect it. Given the potential for severe injury, these crashes could upend your life in moments. Following a side-impact crash, you could benefit from discussing your case with a compassionate injury attorney.

If you can prove the driver that struck you was negligent, you could be entitled to monetary compensation. This compensation could cover your medical bills or replace the paychecks you missed while you were out injured. An Augusta side-impact car accident lawyer could assist you in your pursuit of compensation.

How Do Side-Impact Collisions Happen?

Certain circumstances are more likely than others to lead to a side-impact crash. Generally speaking, these accidents fall into two broad categories.

The first type of side-impact crash is known as a T-bone collision. These accidents occur when the front of one vehicle collides with the side of another. Many times, these accidents occur in intersections. When a driver enters the intersection illegally, they are at risk of striking the side of cross-traffic that has the right-of-way.

The second type of side-impact crash is known as a broadside accident. These collisions happen when the sides of two vehicles make contact while driving. This often happens when a driver fails to notice a vehicle in their blind spot before attempting to change lanes. These accidents are also common when drivers carelessly enter a roadway. While the damage in this type of wreck is generally not as severe as in a T-bone crash, these collisions could be devastating. When a vehicle is struck on its side, the driver is at risk of losing control, spinning out, or even rolling. If they were traveling at high speed before the accident, the resulting wreck could be devastating.

An Augusta attorney could work with a person injured in a car accident to determine how the side-impact crash occurred. If they can show that another person’s negligence was to blame, they might be able to help the injured party pursue civil litigation against them.

Resolving an Injury Claim in Augusta

Ultimately, the goal of any attorney representing an Augusta side-impact car accident claimant is to recover fair monetary compensation. There are several ways this can occur.

The first – and most common – method of successfully resolving a side-impact car accident claim is through a negotiated settlement. Often, the defendant or their insurance company will acknowledge their driver was at fault. In these cases, it is typically the amount of compensation that is at issue.

When the defendant denies liability, the remaining option for a plaintiff is to proceed to trial. At trial, the claimant and their attorney will have the opportunity to put on evidence demonstrating the defendant’s negligence. If the jury agrees with the plaintiff, they could enter a judgment for damages against the defendant.
