We all recognize that driving is an immense responsibility and that there is real risk involved. You’re most vulnerable of all, however, when you are changing lanes – and/or when the motorists around you are changing lanes. If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured in a lane-change accident, look to 388CEDA for the comprehensive medical services we offer, and if you also need an experienced car accident attorney, we can recommend one upon your request.
When you leave your lane, you leave your little pocket of road, and it puts you in a more vulnerable position until you establish a new place on the road. Changing lanes safely requires increased care, and when motorists fail to live up to this safety demand, lane change accidents become more likely.
For example, when a motorist merely glances back before zipping out of his or her lane, anyone coming up on the driver or anyone traveling in his or her blind spot could be in trouble. Changing lanes randomly and chaotically – without carefully checking that it’s safe to proceed and signaling one’s attention to change lanes – can upset the flow of traffic and make lane-change accidents a probability.
While an unsafe lane change can lead to nearly any kind of accident, one of the most common is the sideswipe accident. When your vehicle is swiped from the side by another vehicle moving at highway speeds, the impact can do immense damage, including thrusting you into oncoming traffic. If the vehicle that swipes you is much larger than your vehicle and/or is moving at exceptional speed, you can expect the accident to be that much more dangerous.
If you’ve been injured in a sideswipe accident, obtaining the medical care that you need is critical to your ability to regain your health and well-being to the best of your ability. At 388CEDA, we offer comprehensive medical care that includes all of the following:
