Little Rock Side-Impact Accidents
NST Lawyers Assisting People Injured in Car Wrecks in Little Rock
Side-impact collisions, also informally known as T-bone accidents, can happen at four-way stops, at intersections, in parking lots, and elsewhere in Pulaski County, Arkansas. Due to less material being on the sides of cars in comparison to the fronts and backs, more force from the impact is felt by those on the side of the car that was struck by another vehicle. Side-impact accidents can leave victims with head trauma, broken bones, skull fractures, lacerations, spinal cord injuries, and permanent scarring, among other injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a side-impact or sideswipe accident in Little Rock that was caused by another driver, you should contact one of the Little Rock car accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz today to discuss your case and see how we may be able to assist you. Depending on the details of your case, our firm may be able to help you recover economic and non-economic damages for your injuries and losses. With more than 30 attorneys and over 120 staff members, we are a large regional personal injury law firm that has been serving car crash victims in Arkansas and across the South for more than 30 years.
Being Made Whole After a Side-Impact Accident
When there is very little between you while you are inside your vehicle and the front of another vehicle coming at you from the side, you are likely going to suffer severe injuries. Head-on collisions and rear-end crashes, on the other hand, have comparatively expansive fronts and backs of cars, respectively, to mitigate the force of collisions, whereas there is only a thin door with considerably less metal and other materials separating a person from the front of another vehicle in a side-impact crash.
To illustrate a T-bone accident, we shall say that you are making your way to the City of Little Rock City Hall, which is located at 500 West Markham Street, Little Rock, Arkansas 72201. Currently, you are waiting in your vehicle for the light to turn green at the intersection of Broadway Street and West Third Street. When it changes to green, you proceed to drive through the intersection, but before you can get halfway through the intersection, a vehicle runs a red light at the same intersection due to texting while driving and T-bones the side of your vehicle. Consider another example where you are driving on Interstate 30 and another car veers into your lane, hits the side of your car, and pushes you directly into the median.
In order to obtain compensation after such a wreck, you will likely have to prove liability by establishing the other driver’s negligence. This can be done by proving that you were owed a duty of reasonable care from the defendant, but he or she breached that duty and subsequently caused you to be injured as a result. If you retain a skilled car accident attorney in Little Rock, he or she can help you validate your claim and inform you of other damages aside from economic and non-economic damages that may be relevant to your case.
