What Is a T-Bone Accident?
T-bone accidents involve a side collision by another vehicle, but it can be particularly devastating if you are T-boned by a large truck. Due to the truck’s substantial weight, this means that the side doors and windows are likely crushed, even at a low speed. In some cases, the truck can totally crush the vehicle in the crash. In fact, side safety innovations are no match for an 80,000-pound truck.
Causes of a T-Bone Accident
Although there are many reasons a T-Bone accident occurs, some are prominent:
- Truck fails to stop at a stop sign
- Truck runs a red light
- Truck turns at an intersection without adequately checking for oncoming traffic
- Trucks changes lanes improperly
Liability in a T-Bone Accident
The liability is based on fault. Even in no-fault states, negligence matters when dealing with a side-impact accident. The attorneys at Isaacs & Isaacs use accident reconstruction and police reports, video recordings from vehicles, stop lights or businesses and witness accounts to determine fault.
