Philadelphia Lawyer Sideswipe Car Accident
One of the most common types of car accidents that drivers are involved with are sideswipe accidents. Even more common, the offending driver continues on and never stops to accept responsibility either because they are not aware that they just hit a car or because the car they just hit is a parked vehicle with no one inside. Many times, the vehicle that sideswipes a driver is a truck or large commercial vehicle and they are unaware of what they just did because of the size of the truck or bus they are operating.
Sideswipes on 2 lane or more highways
Many accidents occur when one vehicle moves into the lane that another vehicle is occupying. In those cases, typically called a sideswipe, the issue becomes one of he said, she said, on who crossed into the others lane. What makes these cases difficult is that there are usually no independent witnesses because both involved cars are (or were) moving at the time that the crash occurs. In many cases where responsibility is disputed, an expert needs to be consulted to establish the fault of one of the drivers.
