T-Bone Accidents and Negligence in Orange County

T-bone accidents often occur at intersections (though not always) when one vehicle crashes into the side of another. These collisions are usually the result of negligent actions by one driver, including running a red light, failing to yield the right of way, distracted driving, or driving under the influence. In many cases, the side of a vehicle offers less protection to occupants compared to the front or rear, leading to severe injuries.

Common injuries from T-bone accidents include:

  • Head and brain injuries. The impact can cause concussions, traumatic brain injuries, and other serious head injuries.
  • Spinal cord trauma. These injuries can lead to partial or total paralysis, significantly altering the victim’s life.
  • Broken bones. Fractures are common in T-bone accidents due to the force of the impact.
  • Internal injuries. Damage to internal organs can occur, sometimes leading to life-threatening situations.

Proving negligence in a T-bone accident case involves showing that the other driver didn’t exercise reasonable care, directly causing the accident and resulting injuries. Our experienced injury lawyers will gather evidence, interview eyewitnesses, and consult with accident reconstruction experts to build your case.

What Compensation Could You Receive?

In the aftermath of a T-bone accident, victims may be entitled to various types of compensation. This compensation is aimed at covering both the economic and non-economic damages resulting from the crash.

  • Medical expenses. This includes compensation for all medical costs related to the accident, such as emergency room visits, surgeries, hospital stays, medications, and physical therapy. Future medical expenses related to ongoing treatment and rehabilitation can also be included.
  • Lost wages. If the injuries from the accident prevent you from working, you may be entitled to compensation for the income lost during your recovery period. This can also extend to lost earning ability if your injuries result in a long-term disability that impacts your ability to work in the future.
  • Pain and suffering. Non-economic damages such as pain and suffering are supposed to compensate for the physical pain and emotional distress caused by the accident. This can include anxiety, depression, loss of enjoyment of life, and other mental health impacts resulting from the trauma of the crash.
  • Property damage. Compensation for the repair of your vehicle (or replacement if the damage is severe enough) and any other personal property damaged in the accident can be included in your claim.
