Side Collisions in Bakersfield, California

Car Accident Attorney

Were you injured in a side collision? This type of car accident occurs when two vehicles are involved in a collision between the sides of both vehicles or the side of one vehicle and the front or rear end of the other vehicle. A side-impact collision may occur in an intersection, if a vehicle proceeds through and runs into the side of another vehicle. Another potential cause of a side collision is a driver who changes lanes into the side of another vehicle. Talking to a Bakersfield car accident lawyer is important if you or someone you know has been injured in this type of accident.
