What is a T-Bone Car Accident?

T-Bone accidents occur when a driver strikes the side of another vehicle. T-Bone accidents are often referred to as side-impact or broadside collisions. This type of collision is known to cause serious and severe injuries and sometimes fatalities. Unfortunately, the sides of the vehicle don’t provide enough protection to keep the driver and passengers safe when there is high impact. Additionally, your car can spin, flip, or even cross into oncoming traffic after being struck.

Causes of T-Bone Car Accidents:

  • Failing to Stop - If a driver fails to stop at an intersection or red light, they’re often susceptible to crashing into the side of another vehicle who had the right of way which causes a T-Bone car accident.

  • Failing to Yield - When a driver fails to yield right of way to another vehicle at a stop sign or four-way stop this can result in a T-Bone accident.

  • Running Red Lights - If a driver is in a hurry and tries to beat a red light or if they’re speeding and do not have time to stop, the vehicle that is in the intersection often becomes victim to a T-Bone accident.

  • Improper Left Turns - If a driver turns left at a traffic light when they do not have a green arrow or the legal right to do so, this can very easily result in a T-Bone car accident.

  • Driving Improperly in Bad Weather - When road conditions become dangerous, due to unfavorable weather, a driver must slow down and become cautious. If the driver fails to do so, they may become vulnerable to sliding into an intersection and into the side of another vehicle.

    What to do if you’ve been involved in a T-Bone Car Accident

    In a T-Bone accident case, the priority is determining liability. Many times, insurance companies work hard to blame anyone or anything, but their client, for the accident. This is why you need an expert legal team on your side! 

    The team of lawyers at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys in Shreveport will work to investigate all evidence pointing to the driver’s negligence that caused him or her to crash into your vehicle.
