Side impact collisions are when a car hits the side of another. It’s often called a t-bone accident because of the shape of the two vehicles together. This type of collision also called a broadside accident, usually occurs in Waco intersections. A T-bone accident can be very complicated because both sides often deny doing anything wrong. Our Waco car accident lawyers are experienced in side-impact cases and the complications that they bring. We can help you build your case.
What causes broadside collisions?
Causes of side-impact collisions include running a red light, failing to check blind spots, and sideswipes on the highway. Today’s vehicles have a lot of excellent safety features. But they are not as useful for t-bone accidents. Nothing but a door protects the person from the other car. This can leave someone with catastrophic injuries.
What should I do after a t-bone accident?
After a side-impact crash, it is best to take pictures of the location and damage to the cars. A lot of vehicles in t-bone accidents are considered a total loss and are towed away from the scene. Find out where the car is taken. This information can be obtained from the police, the tow truck driver, or the insurance company. Eyewitnesses can be incredibly crucial to winning a side-impact collision case. The faster you get a Waco car accident lawyer, the better odds you have of a good outcome.
