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 only recently have automakers incorporated design features like side curtain airbags to protect drivers and occupants in side-impact accidents.

Many victims of T-bone collisions sustain serious injuries that can include:
- Crushed limbs
- Broken glass injuries
- Facial injuries
- Head and brain 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.
