The Other Car Sideswiped Me – What Should I Do?
No matter how severe the crash‚ if you were involved in an accident‚ you were likely overwhelmed‚ confused‚ and in shock. You may have even lost consciousness‚ depending on the extent of your injuries‚ and the entire incident is a blur. Your primary concern should be your health and the health of others in your vehicle at the time of the incident. Unfortunately‚ the other driver does not want to bear responsibility for your medical bills‚ your own insurance provider is offering a meager sum for your damages‚ and you do not know when you will be able to return to work.
With the Jurewitz Law Group | Injury & Accident Lawyers on your side‚ you can remain focused on your recovery while we go to work for you‚ gathering evidence and building a strong case in your favor.
Common Factors that Contribute to a Sideswipe Crash
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)‚ one of the most commonly cited reasons for sideswipe collisions is lane departure. When a car crosses into the path of another vehicle while both are traveling in the same direction‚ the other driver may try to swerve out of the way‚ possibly leaving the road or crossing into another vehicle’s path. Factors that often lead to lane departure include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Fatigued driving
- Texting while driving
- Failure to check rearview mirrors
- Failure to use a signal when changing lanes
While it can be difficult to prove how a sideswipe accident occurred‚ especially if the other driver fled the scene‚ a dedicated legal team can help you pick up the pieces and face the challenges ahead with confidence.
