Hollywood Broadside Collisions
Broadside collisions, also known as side impact or T-bone accident, often occur at busy intersections when someone fails to yield right-of-way or runs a red light or stop sign. These types of collisions tend to involve high speed and also tend to result in very serious injuries, since passengers have no crumple zone at the sides of the vehicle.

Due to the speeds involved in T-bone accidents and due to the fact that passengers have very little crumple zone at the sides of a car – in some cases they don't even have an airbag – injuries from a broadside accident tend to be considerable. Injuries from this type of car accident in Hollywood can include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head trauma
- Nerve damage
- Soft tissue injuries
In many cases, permanent injuries are the result, and when injuries are long-term insurance money from a car accident often does not cover the full cost. In many cases, insurance companies make a lowball offer, even though there may be ongoing pain and suffering as well as medical expenses and other costs a victim may have to consider. For example, if you suffered a permanent spinal cord injury in Hollywood, you may end up paying $100,000 in medical costs in the first year alone, and the injury may cost you millions of dollars in lost income, lost opportunities, medical costs, and other expenses over a lifetime.Should You Pursue a Legal Claim in Hollywood or Your Community?
If you accept insurance money without taking your long-term costs into account, you may find insurance money running out while medical costs keep piling up. Worse, once you have accepted insurance money you may have few options for seeking more compensation down the line.
Due to the high cost of these types of car and truck accidents in Hollywood, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident. Your attorney can help you understand the likely total cost of your injuries, can help find all liable parties in your situation, and can help you pursue compensation so that you do not face financial distress as you face the long road to healing.
