Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

cohen and cohen law firmThe reason why so many people need a good side impact collisions lawyer is because these kinds of accidents can cause lots of damage and injuries to the people and vehicles involved.

T-Bone, Right Angle or Broadside

The above terms may remind you of a steaks, geometry, or beaches but these are also terms that are used to describe side impact collisions. No matter what you call this type of accident, it can lead to damage to vehicles, serious injuries to people- and even fatalities.

The damage to a vehicle that has been in a side impact accident can be substantial. Even when the damage does not look that bad, the frame can be damaged and the car is not repairable to be safely driven again. Many times it is obvious from the onset of an accident that the vehicle is totaled beyond repair.

The kinds of injuries that people suffer from after a side impact collision can require extensive medical treatment and lengthy recovery times. In the most unfortunate scenarios, people die in these kinds of accidents.

These types of collisions have sometimes caused close to a thousand deaths per year in the United States alone.

When a collision happens because of a driver’s recklessness or negligence, that driver may be found responsible for injuries, property damages and any other losses that the accident victim experienced. If you or someone close to you has been injured- or if someone you love died as the result of this kind of car accident in Maryland, Virginia and or Washington DC- you may benefit from talking to an experienced and successful side impact collisions lawyer at Cohen & Cohen, today.

Sideswipe and Broadside

The two main types os of side impact collisions are known as sideswipes or broadsides.

A sideswipe typically happens when two cars are traveling in the same direction. The driver’s side of one vehicle crashes into the passenger side of the other vehicle. Common causes of these types of incidents include but are not limited to:

  • Improper lane changes
  • Drivers failing to check their blind spots
  • Lane drifting due to distracted, tired or impaired driving
  • Failure to properly yield, especially on turns

If you think that a sideswipe accident you were in was caused by a reckless or negligent driver, start protecting yourself and your loved one’s rights by talking to a side impact collisions lawyer who has experience with getting their clients the maximum amount of compensation they are entitled to.

A broadside collision is often referred to as a T-bone or right angle collision. These occur when the front of one vehicle hits the side of another vehicle. This tends to happen because:

  • Two vehicles enter an intersection at the same time and one car hits the other at a perpendicular or right angle
  • One driver ran a stop light, stop sign, or failed to yield and follow the right-of-way rules

Even though modern day cars are fairly well equipped with safety features such as bumper and crumple zones for front and rear impact collisions, the sides of our cars do not do as much to protect their occupants. These kinds of accidents can cause severe injuries and medical problems that are the result of these injuries. Side impact collision victims often need to miss work because of their injuries. A victim’s future earning potential may be negatively impacted by ongoing issues from their accident.

If you or someone you care about has been injured in a side impact collision- or if someone you love has died as the result of this kind of accident- start to ease your pain and suffering by contacting a reputable side impact collisions lawyer Washington DC who has helped victims to get the compensation they were entitled to.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
