Davie Broadside Collisions

Broadside car accidents occur when one vehicle sideswipes another. These types of traffic collisions occur in Davie and surrounding communities each year. In some cases, they cause fatalities and serious injuries because passengers are very vulnerable near a side door window and with virtually no crumple zone in this type of accident.

The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have successfully handled thousands of car accident and personal injury cases, recovering more than $100 million over the years for families just like yours. If you would like to know whether you have a case or would like some free legal advice, you can always contact Flaxman Law Group at 1-866-FLAXMAN (1-866-352-9626) for a confidential, no cost consultation.

Causes of Broadside Car and Truck Collisions in Davie and other Communities

Broadside or sideswipe collisions usually occur when one vehicle enters the lane of another vehicle or drives too closely to another car or truck. There are many causes of broadside collisions:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Not checking blind spots
  • Illegally trying to share a lane or drive up on the shoulder of the road
  • Illegally trying to share a lane with a motorcycle or bicycle
  • Tailgating
  • Illegal lane changes
  • Poor road design or poor road maintenance

All of these causes are completely preventable and in many cases, sideswipe accidents can lead to a legal claim since negligence is involved.

Insurance May Not Be Enough After a Serious Traffic Crash

After a serious broadside collision, you may not know the long-term effects of the injuries, your long-term costs, or your long-term needs. However, the insurance process is designed to be very quick. This can be a problem. You may get an insurance offer before you know the full long-term costs of your injuries as well as what your injuries actually are. In this situation, it can be very difficult to evaluate insurance offers. Worse, it can make it very easy for you to accept a lowball offer that does not cover the full costs of your injuries down the road. Unfortunately, once you accept settlement money or an insurance offer, you may lose some of your right to pursue compensation later on if it turns out that you need more compensation to pay for your medical expenses, property damage, and other costs.
