Side-impact collisions, also called a T-bone, can result in severe injuries, even when they occur at relatively low speeds. T-bone crashes may necessitate intensive medical care, cause you to miss time at work, and can impact on your emotional health for years to come.

Thankfully, if another party is at fault in a side-impact car accident, they have the legal obligation to provide compensation. Determining fault in these cases can often be a complex matter, involving police reports, visits to the scene of the accident, and significant witness testimony. A Gwinnett County side-impact car accident lawyer could help you to pursue your case against negligent defendants and prove fault to a judge or jury. Reach out to a seasoned car wreck attorney today.

Determining Who is At-Fault in a Side-Impact Car Accident Case

Georgia is an at-fault state, meaning that at least one party must be considered responsible for any collision. In other words, there is no such thing as a no-fault accident. The law under O.C.G.A. §51-12-33(g) states that, in certain cases, courts can assign blame for an accident to all parties involved. Additionally, the court may issue compensation to injured plaintiffs based on the percentage of blame carried by a defendant. As a result, if a defendant is 75 percent at fault for an accident, they may only be liable for 75 percent of the plaintiff’s claimed losses.

It is always necessary to determine who is at fault for a side-impact car accident. Sometimes, establishing fault includes providing evidence that a defendant broke a rule of the road. For instance, if a defendant fails to stop at a stop sign and hits the plaintiff’s car that was already in the intersection, the defendant is clearly at fault. Other cases are more complex and may require visiting the scene of the accident, talking to witnesses, or even hiring an accident reconstruction specialist.

Which Damages may a Plaintiff Claim?

The core of any personal injury case is physical harm. While many drivers may suffer property damage to their vehicles, they cannot pursue a side-impact car accident case if they do not seek medical treatment for a physical ailment.

Injuries for a personal injury case do not need to be life-threatening, but they do require a plaintiff to seek medical attention. Common examples of injuries include broken arms or legs on the side of the impact, neck injuries from sudden jolting movements, concussions, and separated shoulders or hips.

It is not uncommon for plaintiffs in Peachtree Corners side-impact car accident cases to also demand compensation for pain and suffering or other qualitative losses. A side-impact car accident lawyer in Gwinnett County could help injured individuals to measure the extent of their losses and to demand fair payment.

Let a Gwinnett County Side-Impact Car Accident Attorney Help

All drivers in the Peachtree Corners area must operate their vehicles responsibly. Any failure to do so that results in a physical injury creates civil legal liability. If you have been injured in a T-bone collision, a side-swipe, or other examples of defendant negligence, you may have the right to collect compensation.

A Gwinnett County side-impact car accident lawyer could help you to collect the payments that you need. An attorney may take the lead from day one to collect the necessary evidence, to demonstrate defendant fault, and to represent your interests in settlement talks and in court.
