Dangers of T-Bone Car Accidents: Albuquerque Car Accident Attorney Explains Liability and Injuries

Albuquerque Car Accident Attorney Explains T-Bone Car Accidents

There are large crunch zones in the front and rear of most motor vehicles.  However, there is very little if any crunch space on the sides of a motor vehicle.  Thus, any type of side impact or t-bone car accident is very dangerous for this reason.  Even low speed side impacts or t-bone crashes can result in significant injury to the occupants of a motor vehicle.  Generally where there is a side impact or t-bone collision, one party is negligent for causing the accident.

If you or a loved one were injured in a side impact or t-bone car accident, contact the experienced Albuquerque car accident attorneys at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C. for a FREE case evaluation by calling (505) 883-5000.  We will fight to protect your rights to compensation for your injuries caused by the negligence of another motorist.

Liability in Side Impact and T-Bone Car Accidents

Generally, one of the motorists is going to be largely at fault for a side impact or t-bone car accident.  This type of accident is simply not the product of slight carelessness or mistake.  Rather, this is the type of accident where one motorist was not paying attention, violates a vehicle and traffic law, or is grossly negligent in the operation of his or her vehicle.  Common causes of side impact and t-bone car accidents are the following:

  • Running a red light;
  • Failure to yield;
  • Distracted driver (cell phone, GPS, radio);
  • Drunk driving;
  • Running a stop sign;
  • Improper left turn;
  • Unsafe U-turn; and
  • Similar incidents.

Damages in Side Impact and T-Bone Car Accidents

Due to the fact that the sides of most motor vehicles are thin and without a crunch zone, side impact and t-bone car accidents can easily cause very serious and devastating injuries or death to occupants of motor vehicles.  Because of the unique force of impact, i.e., coming from the side, most motor vehicles do not adequately provide protections.  For instance, seats and head rests are designed mostly for front and rear collisions, whereas some motor vehicle only have side impact curtains on one side of the passenger—not usually both sides.

For these reasons, side impact and t-bone car accidents can result in very serious injuries.  Some of these injuries include the following:

  • Broken arms;
  • Traumatic brain injuries;
  • Broken legs;
  • Fractured ribs;
  • Large lacerations;
  • Paraplegia;
  • Nerve injuries;
  • Spinal Cord Injuries;
  • Amputation of limbs;
  • Back injuries;
  • Death; and
  • Many other very serious injuries.
