What is a T-bone accident?
These crashes are called T-bone accidents because of the shape the cars are left in after a collision. One car typically is turning at an intersection and hits another car that is going straight, leaving both vehicles in the shape of the letter “T.”
Drivers and passengers can be left seriously injured after a T-bone accident. They can be left with broken bones or injuries to the head, neck or back. They may need surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy and multiple follow-up appointments. Medical expenses add up fast and they may not be able to work, resulting in a loss of income.
Common causes of T-bone accidents
Why do these accidents happen? Usually because one driver was negligent. The driver may have been speeding, operating recklessly or ignored traffic signs or signals. The driver may have been texting or was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Reckless or aggressive drivers also often cause broadside accidents. One of the most common causes is a speeding driver racing through an intersection and crashing into another vehicle. If you were injured in a T-bone by a car running a red light, you have rights.
If a negligent driver caused the accident that left you injured in a T-bone accident, you deserve financial compensation. The problem is that negligent drivers often don’t admit to doing anything wrong and refuse to accept responsibility. This leaves you in the position of having to prove the other driver was negligent.
Don’t expect much help from the insurance company. They are interested in protecting their profits by paying you as little as possible. There are many tactics they use to try to minimize your claim. They’ll argue your injuries aren’t as bad as they seem or that they were pre-existing. They may send you a lowball settlement offer.
Average payout for a T-bone accident
How much money your T-bone accident claim or lawsuit is worth depends on many different factors. If you sustained a serious injury due to a T-bone at an intersection or any other location, your T-bone injury claim or lawsuit could be worth thousands of dollars or significantly more. It’s affected by the severity of your injury, the length of your recovery and whether you can return to work. If you need surgery or ongoing medical care, your T-bone accident settlement claim could be worth even more.
