Dallas Sideswipe Accident Lawyer
Representing Victims of Sideswipe Accidents in Texas
Sideswipe accidents often result in catastrophic injuries and vehicle damage. They can also present serious challenges when it comes to proving fault and establishing liability. If you have been injured and believe another driver caused the crash, it is essential to contact a proven personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
Our Dallas accident lawyers have successfully handled hundreds of challenging auto accident cases, including side-impact collisions for which fault was contested. 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.
You can depend on our professional legal team to thoroughly investigate your crash that may have:
- Involved multiple cars or other vehicles, including a semi or other commercial truck making an improper lane change.
- Resulted in the wrongful death of a family member or serious injuries such as traumatic brain injury, spinal injury resulting in paralysis, neck and back injuries or broken bones.
