Proving Liability in a Side-impact Collision Case
Either party could be at fault during a side-impact collision. Also called broadside collisions or T-bone collisions, this type of accident happens when one vehicle crashes into the side of another. The crash could be because the driver in either car committed a driving error, such as running a red light or making an improper turn.
Whether another driver struck your vehicle, or you crashed into another car, we can help you prove the accident was not your fault. We will obtain evidence showing the other driver caused your crash and resulting damages. The evidence we can pursue may include:
- Photographs and videos of the crash site
- Crash reconstruction
- Expert opinions
- Eyewitness accounts
- Photographs of your injuries
- Medical records
- Vehicle repair records
- Proof of lost wages
- Surveillance footage
Potentially Liable Parties for Your Accident
Driver error is, by far, the leading cause of vehicle accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Speeding, drunk driving, failing to obey traffic signs and signals, and failing to yield are all driver errors potentially resulting in a side-impact collision.
Sometimes, side-impact collisions happen because of road or vehicle defects. For example, a broken stoplight could cause a broadside collision to occur at an intersection. Faulty brakes could render a vehicle unable to stop, resulting in a crash. If this is the case for your accident, our attorneys can help you seek compensation from the vehicle manufacturer or entity in charge of the roadway.
The Statute of Limitations Binds Your Car Accident Case
According to Ohio Revised Code (ORC) §2305.10, you have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. Under ORC §2125.02, you also have two years to file a wrongful death suit on behalf of a deceased loved one. If the statute of limitations runs out, you may not be able to pursue your case. Our attorneys can let you know if any circumstances may reduce or extend your time limit.
Insurance claims are not subject to the statute. However, if your window for taking legal action expires, it could affect your claim. Reach out to our team to get started on your case right away.
