Side Impact Car Accidents
In side impact car accidents, one car strikes the side of another vehicle. In Miami, side impact car accidents usually occur at intersections, when one car runs a red light or proceeds into the intersection before checking to make sure that the way is clear. Side impact car accidents can have serious consequences. Each year, victims of side impact car collisions are rushed to Miami emergency rooms with head injuries, broken bones, soft tissue injuries, and fatal or serious injuries. With a rear end collision, the passengers of the impacted car are usually protected by a buffer zone - including the trunk and the back seat of the car. With the side impact crash, there is often just a relatively thin layer of metal and glass protecting passengers. Even with side impact air bags - more common in today's cars - there is often no enough of a buffer zone to prevent serious injury. In addition, side impact car accidents in Miami tend to occur on the city's busy streets, and often at full speed. The force of these full-speed collisions can result in catastrophic injury.
