Side Impact Car Accident Lawsuit
Our vehicles are manufactured to keep us safe while driving. The bumpers are reinforced and airbags are required by all states. A t-bone crash is a collision that happens as one vehicle is broadsided. Unfortunately, there is not as much protection on the sides of cars. In fact, broadside collisions are the cause of about a quarter of passenger fatalities in this country. Side airbags are now becoming standard industry practice, but there are still vehicles on the road that do not have this protection.
Side impact collisions occur when the driver is distracted or hesitates in making a decision while driving. Side impact collision attorneys look closely at the facts of the case to determine liability to recover the most for their clients. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman can improve the likelihood that you will recover from the party at fault if you have been injured in a side impact collision. Call us at (617) 367-2900 to tell us your story.
