New Mexico Sideswipe Accidents
Thousands are killed annually in the United States due to motorists who fail to yield the right-of-way. An estimated 15 percent of all traffic accidents are the result of failure to yield on American roadways. Failure to yield is cited as the second leading cause of vehicle collisions.
Sideswipe or “t-bone” collisions are often caused by drivers who fail to yield. In these types of crashes, the safety features of a vehicle are unable to function properly and protect the occupants as they were intended. As a consequence, the ensuing injuries are much more severe.
