It is estimated that T-bone collisions cause up to 25 percent of all car accidents on our roads today. A T-bone accident, put simply, is when two cars collide at right angles of each other. Despite the sophisticated nature of cars and the high tech safety tools they contain, accidents such as T-bone collisions can end catastrophically due to the side of the car that absorbs the impact, and the thin barrier between the passenger and the other car.
Intersections and T-bone Accidents
T-bone accidents usually happen at areas such as intersections, and are more often than not caused by one driver not following road rules such as running a red light. In addition, driver inattention at areas where the road forks can cause these types of accidents, as well as fatigue, aggressive driving and failure to yield to other drivers on the road, as well as defective car parts such as a malfunctioning steering wheel that runs amok.
T-bone Accidents Can Be Life-Threatening
The area that gets the most impact in these accidents is the side chassis as well as passenger or driver door. The class that comes flying into the car can lodge itself into different areas of the car’s occupants, leading to organ damage, lacerations, uncontrollable bleeding and so much more. In addition, metal can be pushed into areas such as the leg, trapping and ‘skewering’ someone into a car wreckage. This is what makes these accidents so dangerous.
Proving Liability in T-Bone Car Accidents
In order to have a valid case in the eyes of the law, one must have convincing evidence to show that the other party was at fault. Determining liability will require your lawyer to look at intersection camera footage in the minutes leading up to the T-bone accident, collecting eyewitness testimony, making available to the court medical bills as well as pulling up the other driver’s driving history in order to build a strong case on your behalf.
