T-Bone Accidents


A T-bone accident happens when another motorist barrels straight into the side of your vehicle, and it is as dangerous as it sounds. If another driver’s negligence causes you or someone you love to be injured in a T-bone accident, 388CEDA offers expansive medical services that include pain management. In addition to medical care and attention, we can recommend an experienced car accident attorney upon your request.


T-Bone Accidents and Common Causes

No two T-bone accidents are ever exactly alike, but many are caused by one of the following common causes:

  • Drivers who take risky left turns at intersections
  • Drivers who jump green lights and push red lights
  • Drivers who fail to carefully pay attention to what’s happening in intersections
  • Motorists who drive too fast to react safely to unexpected events in intersections

Distraction can also play a primary role in T-bone accidents. When a motorist is on his or her phone – or engaging in any activity that distracts his or her attention away from the road and traffic ahead –it makes dangerous T-bone accidents more likely.

Seeking Just Compensation

Obtaining compensation for the damages you suffer as a result of another driver’s negligence is important to your healing process, but the insurance company involved is likely not inclined to make this easy for you to achieve.

Insurance companies are for-profit businesses that engage in whatever practices they can get away with to help them grow their profits. Take note if the insurance company covering your claim engages in any of the following:

  • If the insurance company offers you an early settlement, it’s likely an attempt to settle your claim for less than its actual value. The insurance company is fully aware that you are injured and vulnerable and that you may be desperate enough to accept a settlement that is woefully inadequate. Further, you may not even have a handle on the full range of damages you’ve suffered. All told, it’s in your best interest to consult with an experienced car accident attorney before accepting a settlement offer (that may not even begin to fully cover your damages).
  • The insurance company may make the claims process so convoluted, complicated, and/or lengthy that you begin to lose hope and contemplate giving up in frustration.
  • The insurance company may attempt to shift fault away from their at-fault client who T-boned you and toward you.
  • The insurance company may attempt to discount, minimize, or even deny the damages you’ve suffered.
  • The insurance company may deny your claim outright in the hope that the uphill battle ahead will scare you off.

With a dedicated car accident attorney on your side, you may be better positioned to skillfully negotiate for compensation that covers your damages fairly.

Your Damages

The damages – or losses – that are common to T-bone accidents include all the following:

  • Medical Expenses – Your medical costs can include emergency care, hospitalization, surgery, doctors and specialists, rehab, physical therapy, prescription medications, adaptive medical devices, home health care, and beyond.
  • Lost Earnings – While you heal from the injuries you’ve endured, you’ll likely need to take time off from work, and this often means lost income. If your injuries are serious and/or inhibit your ability to do your work, it can mean a decrease in earning potential and could lead to an altered career trajectory.
  • Pain and Suffering – In addition to financial losses, you can experience psychological and emotional losses that are categorized as pain and suffering. These effects can be haunting and difficult to transcend.
