Coral Springs Broadside Collisions
Broadside car accidents are also known as side angle crashes, side-swipe collisions, and side impact collisions. These traffic collisions occur on Coral Springs streets – and the streets and highways of the country – when drivers fail to yield right of way or illegally try to encroach on another driver’s lane. In some cases, these accidents are the result of incorrect lane changes. In all cases, these crashes can and often do lead to catastrophic injury.
Due to the severity of injuries they cause, broadside collisions usually require legal advice.

There is very little in the way of a crumple zone along the sides of a vehicle, which means that all too often broadside collisions result in catastrophic injuries, including:
- Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries
- Cuts and lacerations caused by broken glass
- Internal organ injuries
- Concussions or other head and brain injuries
- Injuries caused by passenger ejection
- Fractures and broken or crushed bones
- Whiplash and soft tissue injuries
- Disfigurement or facial injuries
- Dental and eye injuries
- Injuries caused by defective seat belts or airbags
- Wrist and hand injuries
These injuries can be not only very painful, but they can make it very difficult to return to your job or your everyday activities.Unexpected Medical Expenses are the Leading Cause of Personal Bankruptcy
A brain injury patient in Coral Springs or another Florida community who has sustained a severe, permanent injury can face medical bills of more than $100 000 in the first year of treatment alone. Severe spinal cord injuries have similarly high costs. Even a fracture can end up costing tens of thousands of dollars in medical treatment, imaging tests, lost wages, and more. In addition to medical expenses, many people injured in a serious car accident also need to worry about lost income, property damage, car repairs or car replacement, and many incidental costs that can add up quickly. All too often, injured drivers and passengers find that insurance pays for only some of the costs and does not pay much for future expected expenses. It is why pursuing a legal claim to seek fair compensation may make sense.
