T-Bone Car Accidents 

Kenison Law Office, PLLC  Feb. 23, 2024

It's everyone's worst nightmare. You're driving down the road, and out of nowhere, another vehicle crashes into the side of your car. This is what's known as a T-bone car accident. They're particularly dangerous because the sides of vehicles typically offer less protection to drivers and passengers than the front or rear, leading to severe injuries and the need for compensation. 

At Kenison Law Office, PLLC, we understand how traumatic such an accident can be. That's why we're here to support you every step of the way. Our team has extensive experience in insurance defense, giving us a unique perspective on both sides of personal injury cases.

We're committed to fighting for your rights, negotiating fair settlements, and ensuring you get the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We're not just your legal representatives; we're your advocates, ready to stand up for you during these challenging times when you need us the most. 

Overview of T-Bone Car Accidents

T-bone car accidents, also known as side-impact collisions or broadside accidents, occur when the front of one vehicle crashes into the side of another, forming a "T" shape. The impact can directly hit the driver or passenger, increasing the risk of severe injuries as the side of a vehicle gives less protection compared to the back or front.  

T-bone accidents usually occur due to various reasons, including running red lights or stop signs, failing to yield the right of way, distracted driving, and speeding. The resulting injuries can be devastating, often leading to broken bones, head injuries, whiplash, and spinal cord injuries. These injuries can often have long-term impacts on victims, affecting their ability to work, perform daily activities, and enjoy a normal quality of life.  

Victims of T-bone accidents may be entitled to recover damages. These damages can include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage. It's crucial to understand your rights and seek fair compensation for your losses.  

Determining Fault in a T-Bone Accident  

In the state of New Hampshire, which operates under an at-fault insurance system, the party who is determined to be responsible for causing an accident is generally held liable for the resulting damages. However, ascertaining fault can sometimes present challenges, particularly when multiple factors contribute to the accident. 

Our experienced team is here to provide comprehensive support by gathering vital evidence, including witness statements, police reports, and surveillance footage. These efforts aim to establish a clear picture of liability and strengthen your claim.

By leaving no stone unturned, we strive to ensure that your case is robust and well-supported, maximizing your chances of obtaining the full compensation you deserve. 

When to Contact an Attorney 

If you've been involved in a T-bone accident, where the front of one vehicle collides with the side of another in a perpendicular manner, and have suffered serious injuries such as whiplash, fractures, or internal organ damage, it's crucial to contact a personal injury attorney.

At our firm, we understand the nuances of such cases and are here to provide valuable guidance as we protect your rights throughout the entire legal process. 

In situations where the fault isn't obvious or clear, or if the insurance company is undervaluing your damages or being difficult to work with, our experienced attorney will step in to advocate for your rights. We will investigate the accident, gather evidence, and build a strong case to fight for you.

You can rest assured that we will be by your side, ensuring that your voice is heard and that you receive the justice and financial recovery you are entitled to. 

What if a Truck Was Involved?  

If a truck was involved in a T-bone accident, the situation can become more complex. Truck accidents often result in severe injuries due to the size and weight disparity between trucks and passenger vehicles.

Our team at Kenison Law Office, PLLC has experience handling the unique challenges associated with truck accidents and can help you pursue maximum compensation.  

What if I Was in a Rideshare That Got T-Boned? 

If you were in a rideshare that got T-boned, you might be eligible for compensation. Most rideshare companies provide insurance coverage for passengers involved in accidents while using their service. However, attempting the insurance claims process can be complicated, especially without proper legal representation.

With our understanding of the specific regulations and requirements for rideshare accidents, we can ensure that your rights are protected and help you receive fair and full compensation.
