McKinney T-Bone Accidents Lawyer

Let Our Collin County Lawyers Help You Get What You Deserve

Car accidents frequently occur at intersections. While traffic signs and signals are used to regulate the flow of traffic through intersections, drivers do not always adhere. When drivers run red lights or stop signs, turn in front of other vehicles, or otherwise disobey traffic laws, this can lead to T-bone accidents. These collisions occur when the front of one car collides with the side of another, and because of a lack of crush zones, occupants of vehicles receiving impacts to the driver or passenger side incur disproportionately more serious injuries than in a rear-end collision.

Types of Injuries in T-Bone Collisions

When one vehicle strikes another car or truck from the side, the force of the impact often causes catastrophic injuries to the vehicle's occupants. A driver or passenger sitting on the side of the vehicle that was struck may be directly impacted by the other vehicle, and others in the vehicle may also suffer harm due to the jolting motion of the collision or being struck by objects inside the vehicle. Some of the injuries that can occur in these collisions include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries - Even if a vehicle has airbags or other safety systems, a person may suffer a blow to the head in a collision. This can cause serious damage to a person's brain. While concussions and mild brain injuries may have short-term effects, moderate or severe brain injuries can result in long-term cognitive impairments, sensory issues, mood disorders, seizures, and other disabilities.
  • Spinal cord injuries - The impact of a T-bone collision can cause damage to the vertebrae, facet joints, and nerve endings in the neck and back, including herniated discs in the spine or other damage to the spinal cord. Injuries affecting the spinal cord can lead to partial or full paralysis. A victim may suffer from quadriplegia or paraplegia, which can have a major impact on their ability to live independently and earn a living.
  • Broken bones - The force of impact that occurs when a car strikes another vehicle from the side may cause a driver or passengers to suffer broken ribs, arms, clavicles legs, or virtually any other bones in the body. These injuries may require surgery to fix, and they can result in significant pain and a lifetime of physical impairment for victims.
  • Internal injuries - A T-bone collision can cause serious harm to victims' bodily systems, including punctured lungs, lacerated kidneys, or other organ damage. These injuries may require emergency surgery or long-term hospitalization, and they can lead to permanent disabilities or even wrongful death.
  • Lacerations - In a T-bone accident, victims may sustain cuts or lacerations from broken glass, metal shards, or other debris. These injuries can be very serious, resulting in severe blood loss or permanent, disfiguring scars.
