An accident that occurs at an intersection can often be called a side-impact or T Bone accident, or a right angle collision. In a T-Bone accident the one cars front end smashes into the door of another forming a ‘T’. These types of accidents can cause minimal, severe and fatal injuries. If you or someone you care for has been injured in a side impact accident contact a skilled Delaware County accident attorney. Our injury attorneys handle all types of auto accidents, including T-Bone and side-impact accidents.
Causes of Impact in Side Accidents
- Careless driving
- Driving while intoxicated
- Running a red light
- Running a stop sign
- Texting while driving
Injuries Caused by Right Angle/Side-Impact Collisions
In a T-Bone accident there can be several types of injuries that differ from other types of car accidents. In a right angle accident a driver or passenger is likely to experience various degrees of head, neck, shoulder and spinal cord injuries. T-Bone accidents can also injure the lower extremities, particularly the knees. This is due to the angle of the impact compared to a head-on collision or rear-end collision. Also, more severe injuries can occur at lower speeds in these types of accidents due to how a car is designed to crumple in the event of an accident.
