T-Bone and Side Impact Car Accidents Lawyer
in St. Pete & Pinellas Park, FL

Attorney for T-Bone and Side Impact Car Accidents
in Pinellas Park

A side impact car accident usually strikes out of nowhere, whether your vehicle was the one impacted or leading the collision. These collisions are different from rear-end or head-on collisions where the vehicle absorbs most of the impact as there is usually only the door panels protecting you thus most of the force hits the passengers. Side-impact airbags help but cannot protect passengers against all injuries.

Common Causes

T-bone or side impact car accidents commonly occur when:

  • The other driver runs a red light or stop sign
  • Merging into traffic
  • A driver loses control of their vehicle

Drivers are often at fault when they:

  • Fail to check blind spots before merging
  • Have preventable vehicle malfunctions
  • Are inexperienced at handling their vehicles
  • Fail to pay attention to traffic signals and yield the right of way
  • Drive recklessly or aggressively

Types of Injuries resulting

T-bone and side impact accidents cause many different types of injuries. Among them, neck and spinal injuries are common for persons on the side struck. Brain injuries are also common due to the force of impact. Other frequently seen injuries include:

  • Shoulder injury
  • Chest and abdominal injury
  • Hip, pelvis, and leg fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Burns and abrasions

Proving Fault

Determining fault and proving it in a t-bone or side impact collision in some cases may be straightforward, such as where the other driver ran a red light, or more challenging such as if you merged into traffic too closely. In any circumstance, if you may have suffered a personal injury or vehicle damage, you should consult an attorney to evaluate your case and advise of your ability to seek damages.

Florida follows the rules of comparative fault which means each party is responsible for their share of fault in a collision on a percentage basis. This does mean your damages are reduced by your percentage of fault, if any, if your case proceeds to trial. However, it does not mean you cannot recover. Your share of fault may not even factor into the damages analysis if your claim settles out of court.
