Causes and Consequences of T-Bone Accidents
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has estimated that at least 1-in-4 fatal or serious auto accidents are caused in part or completely by a motorist who has become distracted, most likely by a cellphone. It is believed that the majority of T-bone collisions are caused by driver distraction. Injuries often reported after a T-bone accident are:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord damage and paralysis
- Compound bone fractures
- Permanent disfigurement
Seeking Compensation After a Crash
Injuries caused by a T-bone collision often require significant medical treatment, including numerous medical procedures, and/or surgery. Getting back on your feet may require extensive rehabilitative therapy sessions as well. Any compensation you seek should account for all aspects of your recuperation.
Due to the violence and force behind a T-bone collision, many of these accidents prove to be fatal. In such cases, surviving family members may have a wrongful death action. If successful, a wrongful death claim can help the family pay for funeral and burial expenses, final hospital fees, and lost future wages the decedent would have earned over his lifetime.
