Hallandale Beach Broadside Collisions
The front and rear end of a vehicle have bumpers and crumple zones. Unfortunately, the sides do not. If you are in a sideswipe or broadside collision, this lack of crumple zones and bumpers can mean that you are at risk for serious injury. In fact, only head-on collisions have more fatalities than broadside collisions. The lack of protection on the sides of the vehicle mean that passengers are extremely vulnerable in a sideswipe car or truck accident in Hallandale Beach and other communities.
The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have found that many broadside collisions are preventable and are caused by drunk driving, driver distraction, and other forms of negligence. In these cases, it is possible for survivors to seek fair compensation for their injuries through a legal claim or through negotiation with insurance carriers. To find out how much your case may be worth and to find out whether you have a case, you can always contact Flaxman Law Group at 1-866-FLAXMAN (1-866-352-9626) to arrange for a free, confidential case consultation about your situation.What Can You Recover Damages For?
Those who have been injured in a broadside collision may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Hallandale Beach or their community. They may also be able to file a personal injury claim in order to seek compensation for damages and for their injuries.
If you have been injured in a side-swipe accident caused by someone’s negligence, you may be able to recover damages for:
- Medical bills
- Future expected medical costs
- Rehabilitation, therapy, physical therapy, and more
- Property damage
- Car repair or car replacement
- Hospital stays
- Specialized medical treatment
- Assisted-living facility costs
- Memorial expenses and final medical bills, in the event of a fatality
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Expected future lost income opportunities
- Incidental expenses, such as transportation to see a doctor
- Medical devices and medical equipment
Keep in mind that if you do not seek fair compensation and damages for your injuries, you may end up paying for some of the above expenses yourself, especially if you've been permanently or seriously injured. Even if you have car insurance or medical insurance, you may find that not all of the expenses related to your injuries are covered. This is many plaintiffs choose to speak with a personal injury attorney and to pursue compensation for their injuries.
