About Broadside Collisions
According to the United States Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), broadside collisions are responsible for more than 9,000 fatalities every year throughout the United States. These accidents may occur virtually anywhere: in intersections, parking lots, and when vehicles turn across traffic. Of course, these accidents are typically caused by the negligent actions of another driver. Common causes of broadside collisions include:
- Adverse weather conditions
- Aggressive driving
- Distracting driving
- Drunk driving
- Excessive speeding
- Failure to obey traffic signs or signals
- Fatigued driving
- Careless or reckless driving
- Texting and driving
- Turning across traffic
In some instances, side-impact collisions become hit and run accidents, if one of the parties leaves the scene without exchanging contact and insurance information with the other driver. These accidents are also the cause of many different types of injuries.
