Was your car sideswiped by another vehicle? Sideswiping occurs when the side of one vehicle scrapes along the side of another. This type of collision happens between vehicles that are traveling in the same direction, although the struck vehicle may be either moving or stationary.
Not typically as deadly as other types of traffic crashes, a sideswipe accident can certainly still leave you with costly property damage and even severe, debilitating injuries. When you’ve been hurt by the actions of another motorist, being able to conclusively prove who is at fault for your sideswipe accident becomes a central part of your recovery journey.
