Side-Impact Accidents

Experiences Carlsbad Car Accident Lawyers – (760) 642-5475

Side-impact, or T-bone, collisions can be particularly dangerous for the occupants of a vehicle. These accidents occur when the front or rear of one car impacts with the other car’s side. Since the hit occurs commonly on the doors of the vehicle, there is little protecting for the occupants of the vehicle and they are at risk for severe injuries. The struck car may also spin or roll, which can cause a chain-reaction of accidents and involve multiple cars. The serious nature of these accidents means that they can cause grave injuries. If you’ve been injured in a T-bone accident, contact our Carlsbad auto accident lawyers.

The Causes of Side-Impact Accidents

Negligent drivers, illegal actions, poor weather, and a number of other factors can contribute to side-impact accidents. If you are injured in a side-impact accident, it is important for your lawyer to investigate the cause of your accident and find evidence of the other driver’s negligence.

Causes of T-Bone accidents may include:

Typically, side-impact accidents occur when one vehicle fails to stop and hits another vehicle that is crossing its path. Busy intersections are a common place for these accidents, but they can also occur in parking lots, at driveways or side streets, and in turn lanes. When turning or approaching an intersection, drivers should take care to yield as required or as is safe.

Injuries of Side-Impact Collisions

Side-impact collisions are unique. Occupants often have little between them and the other vehicle, and the direction of the impact can be different than in other types of accidents, such as head-on collisions. Because the side of a vehicle is less protective than the front or rear, serious injuries are frequently sustained in T-bone accidents.

Common side-impact-injuries are:

Reinforced doors and side curtain airbags are relatively new features that have been widely introduced by automakers over the past decade. These improvements to crash safety can save lives and prevent injuries, but drivers of older cars are lacking the same protections. For children and infants, airbags may also cause more harm than they prevent. Always follow manufacturer instructions and use appropriate restraints for your child’s size and weight to protect them from injury in an accident.

Side-impact injuries may also be fatal. An experienced auto accident lawyer can help you file a wrongful death lawsuit if you have lost a loved one to a car accident. These lawsuits can help pay for final expenses and compensate the family for lost income or other provision that the deceased individual provided for their family.

Our Victories

Liability and Comparative Negligence in California

California has laws that recognize that injured drivers may be partially at fault for their own accident. Comparative negligence laws state that an injured driver can only receive the amount of compensation that is equal to the percentage of fault they are not liable for. If a driver who is making a protected left turn is hit by another driver who ran a red light, it is likely that the first driver will receive the full amount of their claim’s value. If a driver was merging and failed to yield, and was struck by another driver, it is more likely that the driver who was struck will receive less than their total claim value, since they contributed to the accident by failing to yield the right of way.
