T-bone accidents are one of the deadliest car accidents a person can get into. With nothing but a car door in between you and the oncoming car, a T-bone crash has a high chance of injuring or killing you or a loved one. Luckily, not a big percentage of people will have to experience a traumatic event like this in their lifetime, but for those who aren’t so lucky, having a Dallas T-bone collision attorney by your side will ensure a much easier transition.
What is a T-bone crash
A T-bone crash, also known as a broad-side collision or a side-impact collision, can occur in several places, some more dangerous than others. In a calmer environment, T-bone collisions can occur in residential areas or parking lots. While people tend to be driving much slower in areas like these, serious injuries might still occur. Most commonly, the more dangerous places T-bone crashes can occur would be at a traffic light’s intersection. With people driving significantly faster, crashes in areas like this can produce much more severe injuries or even death. Crashes like this can occur for various reasons as simple as distracted driving or as reckless as drunk driving. Regardless of the reason, you should be entitled to the maximum compensation.
What to do if you are involved in a Dallas T-bone accident
After a serious accident like this, your first step should always be to seek medical help to any injured party involved in the crash. Ensuring that they receive medical care as soon as possible could be the difference between life and death. T-bone accidents are much more dangerous because of the positions of the vehicles’ impact.
While the front and back end of any vehicle has small crumple zones to absorb big impacts of rear-end and front-end collisions, the sides of a car give no room for absorption and lead to much more traumatic impacts with the driver and/or passengers. Make sure to note as many details of the crash as possible, and when you can, take down the information of the driver at the time of the incident, and take pictures of the location the crash happened along with pictures of the damaged vehicle. After getting everyone in a safe environment, your next best step would be to make sure you get in contact with one of our expert car accident attorneys in Dallas and file your claim.
