T-Bone Auto Accidents and Serious Injuries: Albuquerque Auto Accident Lawyer Explains
Victims of t-bone auto accidents are likely to be seriously injured. A t-bone auto accident is when one vehicle is struck on the side by another vehicle. The ensuing collision causes a “T” with the front of one vehicle smashing into the side of another vehicle. This type of collision is very dangerous because the victim being hit on the side does not have a crunch zone on the side panel like the victims in other vehicles hit on the front or back. Since the side panel is so thin, that occupant is in a more dangerous position and more likely to be seriously hurt. This is especially true in a t-bone collision as the thin side panels are met with the thick engine block of another vehicle. Our Albuquerque auto accident lawyer knows this and handles many types of t-bone auto accidents causing serious personal injuries.
