Side Impact Collision Attorneys in Kansas City
When You’re Injured by Another Driver, Our Team Is Here for You
T-boned, sideswiped, or broadsided: Three other ways that refer to side impact collisions. These accidents often result in serious injury and death, since the side of the car does not offer as much protection to those inside. The impact can land on your side of the car or the opposite; while the former is more likely to result in serious injury or death, any side impact collision can send victims to the hospital.
If you or a loved one were hurt in this way, our Kansas City side impact collision attorneys can help you recover the compensation you deserve. We have helped clients recover hundreds of millions after they have faced serious injuries. Whether in negotiations or in a courtroom, our team will fight for you.

Causes of Side Impact Crashes
There are 2 main categories of side impact accidents: sideswipes and broadside collisions. Sideswipes typically occur between vehicles that are traveling the same direction. The driver’s side of one vehicle crashes into the passenger’s side of another while both are moving and can leave anything from a small scratch to extensive frame damage. They may even push the victim into another driver, resulting in a chain of serious injuries.
Sideswipe collisions often happen due to:
- Improper lane changes
- Improper merging behaviors
- Failing to yield right of way
- Drifting into another lane because of fatigue or distraction
Broadside collisions, also known as “T-bone” crashes, happen when the front of one vehicle hits the side of another, causing the shape of a T. This type of side impact collision typically occurs when 2 vehicles enter an intersection at the same time.
Broadside collisions may be caused by:
- Failing to yield right of way when driving through an intersection
- Failing to pay attention to or obey street signs and traffic signals
- Failing to check for oncoming traffic before turning into an intersection
- Distracted driving
- Speeding or reckless driving
