    T-BONE CAR ACCIDENTS

    Side-impact car crashes, also known as “T-bone” or “broadside” collisions, occurs when a vehicle is hit on its side by another vehicle. Side-impact crashes are extremely dangerous.

    DEALING WITH INSURANCE COMPANY

    They will attempt to obtain a recorded statement from you. You do not want to give them one, because they might use that statement against you. They might find a discrepancy between your statement and the police report, or between your statement and the witness statement. The insurance company will often hire an expert witness who will disprove your side of the story. If the case is litigated later on you will end up looking like a liar in front of the judge and jury.

    You also do not want to sign anything that they give you without an attorney reviewing it first. Often insurance adjuster will ask you to sign a blank authorization which will allow them to obtain your medical records. They will then use that authorization to get a copy of your medical records beyond what is required for them to make a determination of your injuries. They will find previous conditions and injuries in your medical records and relate the injuries you suffered in the car accident to preexisting conditions.

    SIDESWIPE AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS

    Many people would consider a sideswipe accident to be relatively minor with property damage as the greatest concern. However, sideswiping can actually be very serious and is often just the first incident in a more severe collision. Most sideswiping incidents occur when two cars are driving side-by-side and a driver becomes distracted, drifting into the lane of the other driver. At this point, there is the possibility for escalation. If either driver reacts to this contact by overcorrecting, they may veer into yet another car, an inanimate object, or may flip their car if the overcorrection is severe enough. If you or someone you know has been involved in a sideswipe accident, call auto accident attorney in Sacramento at The Choyce Law Firm to see if you’re eligible for compensation.
