An Introduction to T-Bone and Side-Accident Claims
Unlike a rear-end accident, no particular party is generally presumed to be at-fault in a t-bone accident. Most of the time in rear-end accidents, the motorist driving the car that slams into the vehicle being operated ahead of their vehicle is presumed to be at-fault. This is because drivers are required to place enough space between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them that they should be able to stop safely, should the lead vehicle come to a halt. However, there is no such presumption in side accidents. As a result, the fault in a t-bone accident is dependent wholly on the circumstances surrounding the collision.
Even if you were partially to blame for the crash, you will probably remain entitled to compensation from the other driver involved (and/or a third party) provided that you weren’t “more” at-fault than someone else involved in the accident. If someone else’s negligent, reckless, or intentional choices caused you harm, you should be able to obtain compensation from that responsible party and/or their insurance carrier. Once we learn more about your accident, we’ll be able to advise you of the potential strengths and relative weaknesses of your case. We’ll also be able to “value” your case, so that you have a strong sense of how much compensation you might be entitled to in the event that you choose to file an insurance claim and/or legal action.
