Dangers of T-Bone Auto Accidents: Understanding Causes and Damages

Albuquerque Auto Accident Lawyer Explains Common Causes and Damages of a New Mexico T-bone Crash

A t-bone crash is usually catastrophic and often fatal.  This is where the front of one vehicle collides with the side of another vehicle and forms a “T,” hence the name.  This type of New Mexico auto accident is particularly dangerous because the vehicle being hit on the side has no buffer or side wall in between it and the occupant.  Whereas the other vehicle has the crunch zone of the entire engine block.  In fact, that engine block will act as a battering ram to punch right through the side wall of the other vehicle.  This means catastrophic injuries to the occupants of the other vehicle, usually the driver.  Our Albuquerque auto accident lawyer knows how devastating this type of accident can be.
