Who is responsible in a T-bone accident?

Parties who may be responsible in a T-bone accident are:

  • The driver striking the vehicle from the front
  • The driver of the vehicle struck on the side
  • Government entities for poorly designed or maintained roads
  • Employer of a vehicle driver
  • Manufacturer of a vehicle for a defect or malfunction

Usually, a T-bone accident is the result of a driver violating right of way laws. One driver runs a stop sign, disobeys a traffic light or attempts to make a turn without having the right to enter the lane.

How do you prove fault for a T-bone accident?

With fault in a T-bone accident often depending on who violated right of way laws, proving the cause of the accident can be challenging. Here are some ways to identify fault for a T-bone accident:

  • Witness testimony: For example, witnesses can speak to whether the light was green when a vehicle entered an intersection
  • Right of way laws and traffic signals: A vehicle that enters a lane of travel at a two-way stop sign must wait until the lane is clear. Identifying existing traffic signals can show whether a driver failed to wait for oncoming traffic
  • Accident reconstruction: Where vehicles came to rest, whether there are marks in the road from trying to stop or signs of evasive action can all be indicators of whether a driver was mindful of nearby vehicles
  • Videos and vehicle logs: Video taken from any source and vehicle event data recorders can provide helpful information to explain the events leading to the crash

What’s necessary to prove fault for a T-bone accident depends on the specific circumstances of the crash. As your lawyers, we work to build the evidence in your favor to prove your right to compensation.

Understanding T-bone Accidents

What is a T-bone accident?

A T-bone accident occurs when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of another vehicle. At impact, the vehicles form the shape of the letter T.

A T-bone accident may also be called a broadside or side-impact accident. The crash is characterized by the shape of the vehicles at impact and may have several different causes.

How does the body respond to a T-bone accident?

In a T-bone accident, the body suffers in numerous ways. It endures blunt trauma from the impact of a heavy vehicle. This trauma can break bones and damage vital organs. In addition, the body is thrown at a high rate of speed at a force beyond what the body can naturally withstand. This force can cause whiplash, spinal cord damage and other injuries.

What injuries can you get in a T-bone accident?

Injuries in a T-bone accident can be especially serious. Common injuries include:

  • Concussion, traumatic brain injury
  • Skull fracture
  • Paralysis, spinal cord injury
  • Debilitating injuries, like trauma to the pelvis and extremities
  • Loss of feeling and control of bodily functions
  • Broken bones
  • Organ damage
  • Burns, bruises, scars and disfigurement
  • Wrongful death

Many T-bone accident victims will spend a lifetime suffering from their injuries. Healing can be slow, and injuries can be painful.

A victim deserves fair compensation for their injuries, whatever they are. When injuries are serious and suffering is great, they should receive an amount of compensation that reflects it. As your Hawaii T-bone accident lawyers, we work to ensure that your payment is a fair representation of what you have endured.

Do people survive T-bone accidents?

Forbes reports that T-bone accidents account for 23% of car accident deaths among vehicle occupants. Because of the high impact and force, the fatality rate is high. However, many people survive T-bone accidents. They suffer serious injuries including brain trauma, paralysis, disfigurement and emotional anguish.
