The Devastating Effects of Side Impact Collisions in Georgia

By Grant Law Office on August 9, 2012

Side-impact collisions are commonly referred to as “T-bone” accidents because the front of one car striking the side of another makes a “T” shape. T-bone accidents often result in devastating injuries to drivers and passengers. The injuries suffered in side-impact collisions are so severe that auto manufacturers now commonly offer vehicles with side airbags to lessen the blunt trauma suffered by the vehicle occupants. Unfortunately, even the safest vehicles cannot protect all victims of Georgia T-bone accidents.

The injuries suffered by victims of side-impact collisions can be severe. Victims can suffer traumatic brain injuries if their head strikes their side window. Serious lacerations injuries can occur because of the amount of shattered glass and broken metal. Arms, legs, hips, and ribs are often fractured in high-speed collisions. Even low-speed side-impact collisions can result in debilitating bruises and contusions when the vehicle crumples upon impact. Back and neck injuries are often suffered by victims of these types of crashes as well because of the violent and unexpected whiplash effect that occurs.

Anyone involved in a Georgia broadside collision should seek out immediate medical attention. Your body has probably absorbed a significant amount of force, and even if you aren’t sure if you are injured, you may have suffered a minor head or neck injury that requires attention before the symptoms get worse.

Victims of side impact collisions should also consider speaking with an experienced Georgia car accident attorney. It may be possible to hold the at-fault driver accountable for your medical bills, suffering, and other related damages.
