Side Impact Car Accident Lawyers at Abels & Annes, P.C.
When it comes to car accidents, some common types of collisions are more likely than others to do serious harm. In fact, approximately one out of every four fatalities on American roads happen in a side impact collision, one of the deadliest types of crashes that happen with regularity across the nation and here in Chicago.
Side Impact collisions are commonly called T-bone car accidents because they involve the front end of one vehicle colliding with the side of a second vehicle in a “T” manner. While this is a serious situation for all involved, those in the vehicle that receives the side impact are at a particular disadvantage and are more likely to be hurt as a result. While innovation in automobile designs have continued to increase the safety associated with front end impacts, side collisions have had little benefit in that area, leaving little protection between a driver and the side of the car when an impact takes place.
The advent of side curtain air bags have lessened the injuries sustained in some of these instances but not enough, and as a result, injuries keep happening every year in Illinois.
