Often referred to as T-bone accidents or side-impact collisions, broadside accidents occur when one vehicle is struck on the side by the front end of another vehicle. When a motorcycle is involved in a broadside collision, the results are often catastrophic. A rider may experience multiple broken bones, internal organ damage, head trauma, and other life-threatening injuries. It is important for an injured rider to seek fair compensation through the at-fault party’s insurance policy and all other possible sources.

Causes of Broadside Collisions Involving Motorcycles
Broadside collisions involving motorcycles often involve a failure to yield the right of way or a situation where a motorist simply did not see a motorcycle and its rider. By thoroughly investigating the accident from every possible angle and even performing a complete accident reconstruction, our Phoenix motorcycle accident lawyers will work to determine what caused your broadside accident and therefore who is to blame.
Some potential causes of broadside motorcycle accidents include:
- Texting while driving
- Other types of distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs
A driver who pulls out into traffic without looking both ways may cause a motorcyclist to run head-on into the side of their vehicle. A similar situation may occur if a driver turns right suddenly into a rider’s path. In these and other scenarios, the motorcyclist is most likely the one to suffer serious harm.
