t-bone car accident lawyer

Car accidents are the leading cause of accidents in the United States, but T-bone accidents can lead to more serious injuries due to the nature of the impact. A T-bone accident normally occurs at an intersection or in a parking lot where two vehicles are traveling perpendicular to each other. Individuals who run a red light or blow a stop sign can impact the other driver either on the driver's side or the passenger's side, injuring the occupants. The side panels of most vehicles are the weakest part of the vehicle, as the glass and doors tend to be less reinforced than other parts of cars. As a result, these parts of the vehicle break or crumple, allowing more of the force of the impact to strike the occupants. This can often lead to terrible injuries, and the driver may need to be cut out of the vehicle. This traumatic experience usually causes the innocent driver to need extensive medical attention, which means time out of work and expensive medical bills. When injured in a T-bone auto accident, consult with a Denver car accident attorney for legal advice on the best manner to pursue compensation for you injuries.

Types of T-Bone Car Accident Injuries

Depending on the speed of the vehicle striking you in a T-bone accident, your injuries could range from moderate to severe. A direct impact at high speed can result in such injuries as:

  • Broken bones, especially on the side of your body where the other car impacted your vehicle. Your side panel will crush inward on your body, and the impact can break arms, legs, hands, feet, and collar bones. It all depends on the angle and the speed.
  • Head and brain injuries are common in T-bone situations as well, because the impact will jolt you and possibly cause you to strike your head on the window, steering wheel, or other part of the vehicle as it becomes crushed in toward your body.
  • Neck and back injuries are common in all of the various impacts of a car accident, but a T-bone accident will jar the driver sideways, causing the body to twist unnaturally. The neck is very fragile and can't handle this abuse without severe injury as a result.
  • Soft tissue damage and internal injuries are also a very real danger, depending on the force of the impact. If the crash happened at high speeds, the weak side panel of your vehicle won't protect your body well from the oncoming vehicle. The car will crush in on your body, and if the hit is hard enough, can cause heavy bruising, torn ligaments and muscles, and even internal bleeding.

Death is also a very real possibility in extreme T-bone car accidents, and if you have lost a loved one as a result of this, you know all too well. Even lower speed accidents in areas like parking lots carry risks for the innocent victim. You may think that a lower speed accident wouldn't yield such injuries, but depending on the vehicles involved, damage and pain can be unbearable. With such injuries, the likelihood of hospitalization, possible surgeries and lengthy rehabilitation may occur. This will put you or your loved ones out of work and necessary daily activities, which can be very detrimental to your life. This is unfair, and you deserve to be compensated for such difficulties.

Anderson Hemmat Personal Injury Case FAQ's

Let us help you answer the tough questions you may have about your case. If you don't find what you're looking for you can ask your question here any time.


  • When does a personal injury case go to court?

    Typically, a personal injury accident case will go to trial when a settlement agreement cannot be reached outside of courts. If the defendant in the personal injury case is refusing to offer a settlement that accurately reflects the extent of damages, then a trial might be the only option to secure maximum financial compensation.

  • How do I know if I should accept a settlement offer?

    The best way to know whether or not you should accept a personal injury settlement is to consult with an accident lawyer you trust. Insurance companies try to get claimants to settle quickly before they know how much they actually could get for their accident. Consider having your personal injury case evaluated by a Denver accident attorney from our law firm.

  • How much does it cost to hire a lawyer from your law firm?

    Anderson Hemmat operates on a contingency fee basis. This is a "no recovery, no fee" guarantee which basically states that you do not owe us attorney fees until we obtain a verdict or settlement for you. To learn more about payment options, please call our experienced accident attorneys directly.

  • Do I need an accident lawyer to handle my personal injury case?

    While it is not mandatory that you have legal representation for a personal injury case, it can be extremely beneficial. Many people are cut short of the financial compensation because they were not aware of how much they actually deserved for their extensive accident.

  • I don't think my accident was very serious. Should I still go to the hospital?

    Many people do not go to the hospital after car accidents either because they think they are not injured or they fear they will have to pay out of pocket for the visit. Truthfully, many car accident injuries can go undetected and may not begin to bother the victim until days or even weeks after the accident. As a precaution, anyone involved in a moderate to serious car accident should go to the hospital for a physical evaluation. Most likely, this visit will be covered by insurance. Just be sure to keep record of the visit and the payment for the visit.

  • How do I know if I'm being offered a fair settlement for my auto accident?

    It can be difficult for a driver to know how much they're entitled to after a car accident. Many drivers accept the insurance company's first settlement offer because they trust that it's fair and will be enough to cover all accident-related expenses. This is not always the case. We encourage drivers to consult with a car accident attorney after a collision for a second opinion on how much your claim is worth. More often than not, insurance companies offer claimants far less than they actually deserve.

  • How is the value of my claim calculated?

    Colorado has comparative/contributory negligence laws. This means that even drivers who are partially at fault for accidents can recover compensation from insurance. However, this does not apply to drivers who are more than 50 percent at fault for the collision. For example, if the insurance adjusters decided that you were 20 percent at-fault and the other driver was 80 percent at-fault, then you could collect up to 80 percent from the other driver's insurance.
