Among many strengths of our firm, our ability and readiness to get top-quality accident reconstruction experts involved could make the difference in the outcome of your claim.

Side Swipe Accident: Who’s at Fault?

Texas law requires a driver to maintain a single lane of travel unless it is safe to change lanes and the proper signals are given. If a sideswipe accident occurs, the driver who crossed the line or deviated from their lane and sideswipes another car that is legally in their lane, that driver will be at fault. Additionally, if a driver sideswipes a legally parked car, that driver will be at fault.

Adept at Proving Liability in Disputed Auto Crash Cases

Sideswipe accidents are often caused by driver negligence such as improper lane changes, weaving in and out of traffic, and failure to signal. Lane "drifting" due to texting while driving and other distractions is a rapidly increasing problem on Texas highways and streets.
