Keep in mind

that drivers may be just one element contributing to hit-from-the-side crashes. Other factors that can contribute to T-boned wrecks can include (and aren’t limited to):
  • Vehicle problems, like defective or malfunctioning equipment, particularly brake failures
  • Road issues, such as poorly maintained streets or roads that have an inherently unsafe design
  • Bad weather, like any conditions that make it hard to see or that reduce traction with the roads
Two cars had a collision accident and suffered severe material damage.

Why Are T-Bone Accidents So Deadly?

Side-impact collisions tend to be devastating because:
  • The point of impact is not in a vehicle’s “crumple zone”:

    The crumple zones are the areas of a vehicle that are designed to collapse as they absorb the impact of a collision. Since most wrecks are front-end crashes and rear-end collisions, a car’s crumple zones are in the front and back of the vehicle. So, when a side-impact crash happens, the crumple zones aren’t taking the brunt of the force. That can crush the frame of a car inwards while imposing a lot more of the crash force on the vehicle occupants.
  • T-bones can cause fatal rollovers:

    While a side-impact collision can be extremely harmful in and of itself, T-bone accidents can also destabilize vehicles that have been hit, causing them to roll. If that occurs, the chances of fatalities spike.

These dangers can be amplified whenever:

  • Vehicles are traveling at higher speeds right before the crash. High-speed T-bone car accidents are often deadly.
  • One vehicle is substantially larger and heavier than the other. For example, an 18-wheeler [2] hitting the side of a passenger vehicle can be much more damaging than if both vehicles were smaller cars.

I Was Hit from the Side by Another Vehicle. Who Is At Fault for My T-Bone Car Accident?

Fault will depend on several factors that are specific to your side-impact crash. To start unpacking those issues and get a better sense of who could be at fault for your T-boned car accident, here are some of the key questions you’ll need to answer:

These and other important questions can be answered during the course of a car crash investigation. In fact, it’s typically best for victims to investigate their side-impact crashes with the help of an experienced lawyer who can head up the inquiry, determine fault, and uncover all available legal remedies.

The team at Morris & Dewett Injury Lawyers can do all of that and a whole lot more for you. No matter what you know or don’t know about your crash and liability right now, we can work closely with you to identify and pursue your best options for justice and recovery.
