SIDESWIPE ACCIDENTS

Auto Accident Attorney in Stockton Explains Sideswipe Accidents

Many people would consider a sideswipe accident to be relatively minor with property damage as the greatest concern. However, sideswiping can actually be very serious and is often just the first incident in a more severe collision. Most sideswiping incidents occur when two cars are driving side-by-side and a driver becomes distracted, drifting into the lane of the other driver. At this point, there is the possibility for escalation. If either driver reacts to this contact by overcorrecting, they may veer into yet another car, an inanimate object, or may flip their car if the overcorrection is severe enough. If you or someone you know has been involved in a sideswipe accident, call an auto accident attorney in Stockton to see if you’re eligible for compensation.

Nearly a quarter of a million (250,000) sideswipe incidents occur per year, resulting in approximately 27,000 injuries and more than 2,500 fatalities, according to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. (more…)
