T-Bone truck accident attorneys in California

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reported in the Large Truck and Bus Crash Facts (LTBCF) 2017 that 1,337 fatal truck collisions, or 28.7 of total fatal truck crashes, involved a collision at an angle. This was the most common manner of collision, more so than front-to-rear or front, rear-to-rear or front, or sideswipe collisions.

T-bone accidents, also referred to as broadside crashes involve a commercial truck striking the side of a motor vehicle. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that a final Side impact protection rule incorporated into Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 214 requires vehicle manufacturers to assure head and improved chest protection in side crashes,possibly through installation of side curtain airbags or torso side airbags.

Causes of T-Bone Truck Accidents

A T-bone truck accident involves a truck driver striking another motor vehicle, but the reason that the truck hit the automobile can vary. Some of the most common causes can include, but are not limited to:

  • Inclement weather
  • Reckless driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Mechanical defects
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol
  • Aggressive driving
  • Inadequate driver training
  • Speeding
  • Failure to maintain vehicle
  • Brake failure
  • Driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol
  • Aggressive driving
  • Inadequate driver training
  • Speeding
  • Failure to maintain vehicle
  • Brake failure

T-bone accidents are most common in intersections, with vehicles being struck by trucks that either disregarded traffic signs or lights or possibly trucks that could not stop. The liability in these types of accidents could be complicated.

While truck drivers are frequently at fault, the trucking companies are typically liable parties. In cases involving mechanical issues with a truck, then a part manufacturer or maintenance company could also be liable. In cases involving collisions that were caused by some kind of defective road condition such as a broken stoplight, then a governmental entity could be liable.

You are going to want to be certain that you are working with an experienced attorney as soon as possible after a T-bone accident. The lawyer will be able to identify all liable parties and work to make sure they are held accountable.

Types of T-Bone Truck Accident Injuries

T-bone crashes typically impact the people seated closest to the point of impact more than occupants on the opposite side, but everybody in an automobile can be hurt in these types of accidents. When you were not seated next to the point of impact, the insurance company is almost certainly going to try to pay you less money.

People can sustain a wide variety of injuries in T-bone collisions. Some injuries will result in very lengthy hospital stays that lead to massive medical expenses, and the situations are often worsened by a victim’s inability to work after being injured.

Injuries that people could suffer in T-bone truck accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Sprains
  • Lacerations
  • Neck injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Muscle strains
  • Fractures

T-bone accidents can certainly be fatal. The family of a person killed in one of these crashes could file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party or parties.

An attorney will be of benefit to you because they will take the time to understand the true nature of your injuries and then will pursue a just amount of compensation for you. Do not speak to any insurance company until you have legal representation, as a lawyer will be able to negotiate a settlement for you that covers all of your past, present, and future expenses or file a lawsuit to take the case to trial when an insurer refuses to provide a sufficient amount.
