If you’ve been involved in a T-bone accident, you know just how scary they can be. As you’re driving along, another vehicle suddenly slams into the side of your vehicle, or pulls out in front of you causing you to crash into their vehicle. Either way, your T-bone accident likely left you with property damage and painful injuries. An experienced auto accident attorney can help you deal with the aftermath of your accident. They can help you get medical treatment, seek compensation to cover the costs of your injuries, and seek justice by holding the negligent party accountable.

Causes and Liability for T-bone Accident

A T-bone accident, also called a side-impact collision, occurs when one vehicle crashes into the side of another vehicle, forming a “T” shape. These accidents often occur at traffic lights and other intersections when a driver fails to obey traffic laws such as running a stop sign or red light or failing to yield the right of way. T-bone accidents are often the result of a driver’s careless, reckless or negligent behavior. Drivers who cause T-bone accidents are often distracted, are speeding, or are actively choosing to disobey traffic laws. If you’ve been injured in a T-bone accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you have a right to hold them accountable for your injuries.

Complications with T-bone Accidents

Unfortunately, T-bone accident can become a case of “he said she said,” making what you do after the accident particularly important for your injury claim. As with other accidents, you’ll need to call the police, take photos of the damage and the accident scene, and gather witness statements. Gathering as much evidence as possible can help you prove you were not at fault for the accident. If you are injured, you should also seek prompt medical treatment and contact a car accident attorney who can advise you on what to do next.
