Representing Injured Texas Drivers
T-bone accidents, also known as broadside or side-impact collisions, occur
when one vehicle strikes the side of another. These types of
accidents commonly happen at intersections and driveways. Often, these accidents
can be serious because of the proximity of the impact to the occupants
of the car.
Causes of T-Bone Accidents
Side-impact accidents can happen for a number of reasons, but generally,
a negligent driver is the cause of these collisions. Commonly, these accidents
occur at intersections, when one driver fails to stop. There are other
situations which can cause T-bone collisions, such as:
Injuries from T-Bone Accidents
T-bone crashes can be more severe than rear-end or other collisions because
of the way cars are manufactured. It has only been recently that automakers
have incorporated design features like side curtain airbags to protect
drivers and occupants in side-impact accidents. Because of the lack of
protection in many cars, drivers may still be at risk for severe injury.
Many victims of T-bone collisions sustain serious injuries that can include:
- Crushed limbs
- Broken glass injuries
- Facial injuries
Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI), Whiplash, and other neck and back injuries
- Seatbelt and airbag injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Soft tissue damage
Liability in T-Bone Accidents
Careless behavior can cause T-bone accidents. Failure to obey signals and
signs, reckless driving, and distracted driving risks the safety of others
on the road. Every driver has a responsibility to protect other drivers,
and your attorney will seek to prove that your accidents occurred because
the other driver was
negligent. If it can be proved that your accident was caused by irresponsible behavior,
you may be able to file a personal injury claim for damages.
