About T-Bone Accidents

A “T-Bone” accident describes a accident where two vehicles collide at right angles. Usually, the at-fault driver fails to stop and a stop sign or a red light and enters a highway or intersection and causes a collision with another vehicle. T-bone collisions also commonly happen at uncontrolled intersections. High speed impacts often cause serious injury and/or death.

Orthopedic, spinal cord, and head injuries may result from high-speed t-bone collisions.

Orthopedic, spinal cord, and head injuries are common in high speed T-Bone collisions. Wearing a seat belt in a high speed T-Bone accident can cause a severe spinal cord injury, whereas not wearing one can cause a less severe injury. Commonly, the insurer of the person who caused the accident will argue that your compensation should be reduced under the Contributory Negligence Act because you were not wearing your seat belt. This argument is based on a very simplistic view of the legislation.

Advice for Injured Victims of T-Bone Accidents

The Contributory Negligence Act states that “fault” and “degrees of fault” are questions of fact. This is why you should speak with me, Joseph A. Nagy, and inform me of the specific facts of your case. There are many fact specific judicial rulings on how much compensation should be reduced for failing to wear a seat belt. Each circumstance is fact specific.

Injury Lawyer

Great lawyer. Made a horrible experience tolerable. He was very organized, clear and easy to work with. He dealt with all the hassles of insurance, doctors and anything related to the claim. He always returned all my phone calls or emails within the day. I always felt fully informed with my case and his advice was always clear and understandable. He did a fantastic job and if you get to see him in action….he’s a shark! Highly recommended!
