Understanding the Legal Implications and Your Rights

Our firm recognizes the severity of T-bone accidents- they can range from mild to truly devastating. After serious accidents, victims and their families may not know where to turn and insurance companies are known for taking advantage. Retaining a lawyer could help protect your rights. The Law Offices of Miller & Mallett will put your needs first, fighting hard to make sure you get the compensation and justice you deserve while making sure you feel supported and heard throughout the process.

Causes of T-Bone Accidents

T-bone accidents can occur for various reasons. Do any of the following causes seem familiar to you? Be sure to take notes and remember everything you can about the accident. Every detail you remember about the accident could help your lawyer better advocate for you.

Failure to Yield:

Drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way when making turns or entering intersections can cause T-bone accidents.

Distracted Driving:

Activities such as texting, talking on the phone, or adjusting the radio can divert a driver's attention from the road, increasing the risk of a T-bone collision.

Speeding:

Driving above the speed limit or too fast for road conditions can make it difficult for a driver to stop in time to avoid a collision.

Weather:

Slick roads can cause hydroplaning, which can in turn lead to a T-bone accident.

Running Red Lights or Stop Signs:

One of the most common causes of T-bone accidents is when a driver fails to stop at a red light or stop sign, resulting in a collision with cross traffic.

Injuries and Damages

T-bone accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, including:

  • Head and Brain Injuries: The force of impact in a T-bone collision can cause traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and other head injuries. After an accident, it’s important to see a doctor as soon as possible.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Damage to the spinal cord can result in paralysis, loss of sensation, and other serious complications.
  • Internal Injuries: The impact of a T-bone collision can cause internal injuries, such as organ damage, internal bleeding, and fractured ribs.
  • Bone Fractures: Victims of T-bone accidents may suffer fractures to the arms, legs, ribs, or other bones in the body.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Damage to muscles, tendons, and ligaments can cause pain, swelling, and limited mobility.
