The last thing a driver expects is to be blindsided by another driver during their morning commute. Side-impact collisions, also known “T-bone” crashes due to their perpendicular appearance, involve the front of one vehicle slamming into the side of another, causing severe devastation and injury to those involved. Side-impact crashes are some of the most serious collisions a person can be involved in – especially if either of the involved vehicles is an 80,000 pound 18-wheeler truck.

Common Causes of T-Bone Accidents
While side-impact crashes can arise out of a number of different traffic situations, T-bone collisions are oftentimes caused by the negligence of one or both involved drivers. Whether they are the result of a motorist running a red light or stop sign or recklessly cutting in front of another driver on an unprotected right turn, these collisions can cause involved drivers and passengers to endure catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain damage, amputations, and orthopedic trauma. When considering the massive size and force of a commercial truck, the risk of injury or death is even greater.
T-bone collisions involving trucks can be caused by any of the following negligent acts:
• Driving under the influence • Failing to yield right of way • Running stop signs and red lights • Texting while driving • Difficulty stopping due to overloaded cargo • Driving for too many consecutive hours
Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to recover compensation for a wide variety of damages, including medical expenses, lost present and future wages, vehicle repair costs, pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, and wrongful death. Our attorneys can identify all parties responsible for your or your loved one’s collision and help you pursue a strategy that maximizes your potential compensation. Call Now for Free Advice!
