Side-Impact Collisions and Your Injuries
According to the most recent data from the Insurance Information Institute (III), angle crashes accounted for approximately 18 percent of all fatal crashes in 2017.
One of the leading causes of side-impact collisions is drivers who run red lights. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety reports that more than two people are killed every day by impatient and speeding drivers who run red lights. Red light running is at a 10-year high, according to the Foundation.
In addition to red light runners, other types of dangerous drivers include:
- Drunk drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Aggressive drivers
- Drowsy drivers
The force of another vehicle striking yours in a side-impact collision can result in serious harm for you and your passengers. Depending upon the severity of your injuries, you may never return to your career or to your active lifestyle.
This is not fair and we want to help you. A West Palm Beach side-impact collisions lawyer from Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers can provide you with personalized legal representation. Call us today for your free case evaluation: (561) 899-5020.
Potentially Recoverable Damages
Each personal injury case is different. Depending upon the details of your side-impact collision, possible compensation may include:
- Medical costs for such items as hospital and doctors’ fees.
- Continuous medical costs for rehabilitation, therapy, and prescription medications.
- Diminished earning capacity, which relates to accident victims whose injuries prevent them from returning to the same job they had before the accident.
- Pain and suffering.
We work hard to reach a fair settlement through negotiations with insurance companies. If we are unable to secure the settlement you deserve out of court, we are ready to go to trial. It is our goal to fight for compensation on your behalf.
Do not try to negotiate with an insurance company on your own. Insurance companies want to protect their interests and not yours. They may often use a variety of tactics to underpay or deny claims.
Our team is well aware of how insurance companies operate. We may be able to protect your interests with insurance companies, allowing you more time to focus on your health, recovery, and family.
