T-bone car accidents are a type of side-impact car collision that occurs when one vehicle hits another on its side. T-bone collisions can either occur at an angle or head-on. Side-impact vehicle collisions can be devastating and T-bone crashes are no different.

Due to the impact of these crashes, T-bone collisions can result in severe injuries and even death. T-bone car accidents cause 40% of all car collisions that result in hospitalization due to serious injury or death. According to a study conducted by the University of Michigan Crash Response Information, approximately 3.18 million roadside car accidents occur in the United States annually. T-bone car collisions account for 9,400 fatalities each year and are more deadly than rear-end and head-on collisions combined.

T-Bone Collision As Defined by Law

Technically speaking, T-bone accidents are known as direct broadside accidents. It gained the term due to the two vehicles making a ‘T’. Other side-impact collisions may involve accidents where a vehicle glances off the side or brushes against the side of another vehicle. These types of collisions are called sideswipe accidents.

T-bone accidents can be greatly damaging due to their nature. In frontal car accidents, there is still a window of opportunity wherein a driver can avoid taking the collision head-on. For T-bone accidents, this window of opportunity doesn’t exist. The hit car is often taken by surprise and is unable to do counter maneuvers to minimize the impact.

How Is Fault Determined in a T-Bone Collision?

Because of the shape of cars involved in a T-bone accident, it can be easy to determine which car struck the other.

In intersection T-bone car accidents, for example, if the hit vehicle was following traffic laws in entering the intersection, the vehicle that struck it is almost always the one at fault. On the other hand, if the hit vehicle enters the intersection by running a red light (i.e. unlawfully), they are the ones who will be held responsible for the collision.

While these conditions are not indicative of all, or even a majority, of T-bone car accidents in Miami, they are guidelines that courts use to determine lawful actions and fault in an accident. Before you make any decisions, it is important to seek the help of an experienced Miami T-bone collision lawyer. An attorney may be able to help you investigate the details and evidence related to the accident and help you establish your case and file a claim.

At Charlip Law Group, we provide a personalized, comprehensive approach to the cases we handle. We may be able to help you file a claim and help you seek damages for your troubles.

How Can an Experienced Miami T-Bone Car Collision Attorney Help Me?

Filing a claim for an accident usually involves having an adjuster evaluate the claim’s validity and whether the value requested matches the damages incurred. It may be more beneficial to seek the help of a board-certified trial attorney as insurance adjusters tend to adjust differently for personalized cases compared to a mass market law firm that warehouses car accident claims.

Here are the kinds of damages you may be able to file a claim for if you’ve been involved in a T-bone car accident in Miami:

Pain and suffering is a kind of damage intended to quantify the mental and/or physical stress a person experiences after a car accident. The value of claims for this kind of damage may depend on the type of injury sustained, the severity of the pain and suffering, as well as the diagnosis of a doctor on whether further pain and suffering are expected in the future. It is not uncommon to see a case wherein victims experience post-traumatic stress disorder after a car accident. It may be necessary to consult with a psychologist to gauge the full extent of the psychological distress an individual experiences after a T-bone accident.

Urgent expenses like those for hospital and doctor visits can quickly pile up. Therapy may be required not only for physical injuries but for those who experienced traumatic brain injuries as well. Depending on the severity of your accident and your injuries, your medical expenses may also be more expensive. Rehabilitation might also be necessary for those who’ve lost the use of their limbs and other injuries of the same magnitude. 

It is important to get just and fair compensation to ensure your complete recovery. To help with recovering the maximum amount for your injuries, it’s essential for you and your attorney to gather your complete medical records. These medical records will be the greatest indicator of the amount you must claim to cover for your current and future medical procedures related to your injuries.

It’s inevitable that you may not be able to come to work immediately after a car accident, especially if you need to be confined to a hospital for your injuries. You may be able to include a claim to recover your lost wages. If you sustain a disability due to your injuries or the ability to perform your current tasks for your career, an attorney may also be able to file a claim for the loss of your potential income.

"I had a class action suit to file, and needed to find representation in Florida. My case was complex, and in an industry most people don't know much about. After consultations with two other firms who both declined my case, Charlip Law Group was my next call. David spoke to me personally, and he was the first attorney that actually understood the issue.
