T-Bone Accident Injury Attorney
T-bone accidents may look like a steak, but they certainly don’t taste as good!
T-Bone Accidents are a type of side impact crash that is often the result of aggressive driving. The accident could be the result of a driver changing lanes abruptly, trying to beat a red light, or pulling into an intersection too soon. T-bone collisions are one of the most serious type of accident and cause a lot of fatalities. According to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety found that about 51 percent of deaths occur between cars. The estimated percent of deaths when factoring in SUV’s and trucks increases to 60 percent. Severe injury can occur to the head, neck, and spinal cord. The severity of the impact depends on many factors such as area the vehicle was hit, as well as the speed and weight of the vehicles.
Drivers can take precautions to protect themselves in a T-bone accident. One of these precautions is looking at the side impact rating when purchasing a vehicle and whether the vehicle has torso or side curtain airbags. The structure of the vehicle is important as well because a well built structure can withstand strong impact from vehicles with varying heights and can save lives. Manufacturers use side air bags to try and reduce injuries and death but may fail to save the driver or passenger if the impact is too powerful. It can often be difficult to determine which party caused the accident, even by police.
In addition, after this type of Car Accident occurs, the insurance companies do not want to pay the compensation you deserve.
