T-Bone Car Collisions

Also referred to as broadside or side-impact accidents, a T-bone auto accident involves the front of one vehicle crashing into the side of another automobile. The people who are seated on the sides of vehicles struck in these types of collisions can sustain highly serious injuries, and children may be particularly susceptible to fatal injuries in these cases. Some of the reasons that these accidents occur include:

  • Brake Failure or Mechanical Issue
  • Distracted Driving
  • Driver Fatigue
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
  • Failure to Obey Traffic Signals
  • Poor Weather and Road Conditions
  • Reckless Driving
  • Speeding
  • Turning Into Oncoming Traffic

Regardless of the specific cause, victims hurt in a side-impact car crash in Pennsylvania can be hospitalized for several weeks. Even after being released, people who suffer severe head injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), or spinal cord injuries will not only have an immense amount of past and future medical expenses, but they can also find themselves having lost past wages and unable to return to any sort of meaningful work.

The driver who caused the T-bone accident often did something that was careless or a violation of Pennsylvania law. As a result, this motorist is usually considered negligent and is thus liable for all damages that were caused by the collision. The injured parties may be able to file claims against the negligent driver’s insurance company or, if necessary, file a lawsuit.

When a person who was harmed in a T-bone crash attempts to file a claim with the negligent driver’s insurance company, it is rarely an easy process to collect compensation. While some Pennsylvania insurance adjusters will initially seem very friendly and act as though they are concerned about helping the victims, most settlements that are initially offered are woefully short of what people truly deserve. In some cases, insurance companies may claim that another driver was to blame and decline to provide any compensation whatsoever.
