Negligence and Side-Impact Collisions in Warner Robins
Side-impact accidents occur when one driver runs a red light or stop sign, pulls out without checking for oncoming traffic, or fails to yield. One vehicle collides with the driver’s or passenger’s side of the other vehicle, sometimes directly in the door just inches from the vehicle occupant.
There are federal safety standards for side impacts, 49 CFR 571.214 – Standard No. 214. However, the very nature of the way cars are designed prevents the sides of a vehicle from being as impact worthy as the front or rear. Side-impact airbags and other features have certainly helped, though.
Still, T-bone accidents are dangerous for the occupants of both vehicles, but especially the one hit broadside. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), just below 25 percent of all fatal car accidents in the United States in 2018 were side-impact collisions. The Insurance Information Institute (III) reported that about seven percent of the fatal accidents the same year occurred as a result of failure to yield the right of way, which usually leads to side-impact accidents.
If you suffered an injury in a broadside collision in Warner Robins, you may be able to hold the at-fault driver responsible through an insurance claim or civil case. Learn more by calling Bader Scott Injury Lawyers now for a free consultation.

Recoverable Damages in a Warner Robins Car Accident Case
As a part of developing and handling any personal injury case, the team from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers will seek and gather proof of our client’s losses, including their current expenses, intangible losses, and future needs. This may require expert testimony from medical experts, economists, and others to put a price on your injuries, future care needs, and future lost income and benefits.
The recoverable damages that could be available in your Warner Robins side-impact car accident case include:
● Current and future treatment and medical-related expenses
● Lost wages
● Diminished ability to earn
● Out-of-pocket costs
● Repair or replacement of your vehicle
● Rental car costs
● Pain and suffering
● Other intangible losses, current, and future

Deadlines on Filing a Civil Suit Based on Your Side-Impact Accident
If we need to pursue a personal injury lawsuit based on your Warner Robins side-impact collision, our trial lawyers will not hesitate to move forward with your legal case. We can prepare the paperwork and present a strong argument to show negligence and document your related losses.
However, there are generally time limits for how quickly we need to begin legal action in a Houston County or Peach County court. This is because, like other states, Georgia has a statute of limitations on filing negligence lawsuits. Under O.C.G.A §9-3-33, victims usually only have two years to file the paperwork to begin a lawsuit. This clock begins counting down the date the accident occurred.
