Why Do T- Bone Accidents Occur?
T-bone accidents occur when the front of one vehicle impacts the side of another, and the two vehicles involved in the accident form a T shape. They are also commonly known as side-impact collisions. Many of these accidents occur at intersections and present a high risk of danger to injury victims due to less protection offered than in head-on or rear-end collisions.
Some of the most common causes of T-bone accidents include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Distracted driving
- Failing to stop at a red light or stop sign
If the other driver is negligent, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries and property damage.
What Types of Damages Can Your Law Firm Help Me Recover?
If you have been involved in a T-bone accident due to the negligence of another driver, you need to consult with a car accident attorney who may be able to file a compensation claim on your behalf. Some of the most common economic damages that T-bone accident injury victims are awarded include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damages
In addition to economic damages, you may be able to recover non-economic damages that include:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional trauma
- Permanent disfigurement and scarring
Our personal injury lawyers will gladly sit down with you, review your case’s unique facts and circumstances, and determine which damages are appropriate for your situation.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim After a T-Bone Accident?
Florida law allows personal injury victims up to four years to file a claim from the date of their accident. However, certain exceptions extend the period to begin on the date the victim first discovered their injuries. Even though four years may seem like a significant amount of time, you must speak with a personal injury attorney immediately following any accident.
