Side impact car crashes, sometimes called T-Bone car accidents, happen frequently in Miami and can cause serious personal injury and even the death of their victims. When a vehicle occupant is involved in a side impact car crash the point of impact can frequently determine the extent of the injuries. The closer the impact is to the vehicle’s occupants the more severe the physical injuries and the higher the likelihood of a fatality.

Causes of Side Impact Car Crashes
Side Impact car crashes frequently result when the at fault driver fails to stop at or runs a stop sign or red traffic light. The negligent driver frequently fails to stop at or runs a stop sign or red traffic light because they are driving while texting, speeding, driving while talking on a cell phone, driving while drunk or intoxicated on drugs, driving while distracted by things such as using the car stereo, eating or drinking (including the spilling of coffee or other beverage), putting on make up or talking to their vehicle’s occupants or are simply try to run the light to save time because they were late for work or an appointment.
What to Do After Being Involved in Side Impact Car Crash
Many intersections in Miami are now equipped with video cameras that record the traffic events and may have recorded your crash. This type of video evidence showing the events of your side impact crash could be a major factor in the pursuit of your negligence claim for personal injuries or the loss of a loved one. While the memories of witnesses may fade over time a picture is worth a thousand words and does not fade over time.
If you or a loved one were injured in a T-Bone collision in South Florida you should seek medical attention immediately. After receiving the necessary emergency medical treatment after the crash you should call a personal injury attorney, such as those at Payer & Associates, in order to promptly obtain the intersection video from the proper authorities for use in pursuit of your injury claim and possible use later at trial.
