T-Bone/Intersection Accidents

Our Georgia T-bone accident attorneys aggressively fight for your rights

Traffic intersections can be dangerous places. With so many different vehicles heading in so many different directions, car accidents are bound to happen. One of the most common intersection accidents is a T-bone collision, also known as a broadside collision or side impact accident.

So, what is a T-bone accident? This type of crash involves one car driving into the side of another car, forming a "T" shape. When these accidents occur at an intersection in Georgia, knowing what to do afterwards can be confusing. That's why it's important to talk to an experienced Georgia T-bone accident lawyer about your crash right away.

In this video, attorney Gary Martin Hays explains what needs to be proved in a car accident claim.

Common causes of T-Bone car accidents

Intersection accidents happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of intersection accidents and T-bone crashes include:

  • Distracted driving (especially texting while driving or using a cellphone)
  • Speeding drivers (especially drivers who run a red light)
  • Drivers who are under the influence (including DUI and drugged driving)
  • Falling asleep at the wheel

T-Bone accidents happen for many other reasons. And in each case, it's important for accident victims to explore their legal rights. That's why we want to meet with you right away.

Common T-bone accident injuries

T-bone accidents can result in a range of serious injuries due to the lack the protection the side of a car provides compared to the front and rear bumpers. Common T-bone accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and other head Injuries
  • Chest injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Pelvic and hip injuries
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Sprains and strains

Who is at fault for a T-bone accident?

Establishing liability (meaning who is legally at fault) in these accidents can be complicated. Generally, the at-fault driver is the one who failed to yield the right-of-way, took an unlawful left turn, or ran a red light or stop sign.

However, that is not always clear. Factors such as road conditions, traffic signals and drunk driving can all play a role when determining who is at fault. This is why you need an experienced T-bone accident lawyer. They can evaluate your case and find important evidence that proves the other driver was at fault.

What is the average compensation for T-bone accidents?

There is no average payout for T-bone accidents because every accident case is unique. How much money a T-bone accident is worth can vary due to multiple factors, including the severity of injuries, lost wages, and the impact on a victim's life.

Take all these factors into consideration and compensation amounts can differ significantly from case to case. Some T-bone accidents might result in relatively minor injuries and damages, while others could lead to more serious damages.
