Definition of Side Impact Collisions

Side-impact collisions, also known as T-bone, can occur when the front of one car hits the side of another car. Side-impact collisions are common at intersections and in parking lots. Side-impact collisions can result in very serious car accident injuries because many of the best safety features in the car are built to withstand front and rear-end collisions. Common injuries caused by a side-impact collision can include head injuries, neck injuries, broken bones, cervical strain or sprain and spinal cord injuries.
