Understanding T-Bone/Intersection Accidents
Helping victims recover the compensation they deserve
In these types of accidents, one car is hit on the side by another. These crashes often occur at intersections while one car is making a turn. Because the sides of cars offer little protection, drivers and passengers can suffer serious injuries. The car accident attorneys at Gervelis Law Firm help injured victims recover financial compensation.
In a T-bone car accident, the impact of the front of one car causes the side of another to cave in. Depending on whether the accident is minor, moderate or severe, this can cause a wide range of injuries. They include cuts and bruises, sprains and strains, broken bones, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury.
These accidents are usually caused by negligence, often when one car fails to yield the right of way. A driver may have been speeding or distracted, or failed to stop for a red light. If you were injured in a T-bone accident caused by a negligent driver, you deserve financial compensation.
But recovering that compensation is a complicated process. Other drivers deny responsibility and may try to put the blame on you. Insurance companies are supposed to help, but they are mostly interested in protecting their bottom line and will try to pay you as little as possible. That's why you need an experienced car accident attorney fighting for you.
