Causes of Sideswipe Accidents
Sideswipe accidents often occur due to miscommunication. This occurs when the side of one vehicle brushes against the other. Both vehicles are often traveling in the same direction, but for some reason, one car gets too close for comfort. There is a significant number of sideswipe accidents that occur when cars are moving in the opposite direction as well.
One driver is attempting to merge into another lane without realizing that there is another vehicle in the other lane. It may also occur because the driver does not realize what is in the vicinity.
Here are some other common causes of sideswipe accidents:
- Texting and driving
- Falling asleep behind the wheel
- Playing with the radio dials
- Driving aggressively
- Talking on a cell phone or with other passengers
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
A common misconception with injuries that result from sideswipe accidents is that they are relatively minor. The truth is that they can run a broad range of injuries. Many cars are outfitted to withstand the impact of head-on and rear-end crashes, with not much protection to offer on the sides.
