Who is at Fault in a T-Bone Collision?

T-Bone Collision

The determination of fault for a side impact or T-Bone collision will depend on where the accident occurred. An accident where one car is traveling straight and another car hits it on the side can frequently happen on the roads and city streets. Here are some examples of side-impact collision scenarios:

  • A car side impact hits a vehicle in an intersection
  • A car turning left is hit by another vehicle while going straight through a light
  • A car turns left and misjudges the distance of an oncoming vehicle
  • A car makes an illegal U-turn in the road and side impacts another vehicle
  • A car backs out of a driveway and is side hit by a car, unaware of the first car
  • A car skids off the road and side impacts another vehicle

Depending on the reasons for cars being involved in a side-impact accident, it could be difficult to determine who is at fault for the collision. Factors that can distract any driver include:

  • Texting on a smartphone
  • Adjusting dials on the dashboard
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driver fatigue, on medication, or driving while drowsy with sleep
  • Power outages at intersections
  • New or student drivers unable to avoid a collision
  • Failed brakes
  • Slippery or hazardous road conditions

In general, it is the case that side-impact accidents are usually the fault of the party who hits the car on the side. But, in some situations, there can be fault attributed to both parties. For example, if a car backs out of a parking spot and is side impacted by another car in an automobile accident, who is at fault? In those instances, the driver backing out needs to be sure it is safe to enter the traffic of the row of cars or know how to look over taller cars in the way parked in the vicinity. Also, the car traveling straight needs to obey all speed limits as posted and slow down for seeing any cars backing out into the main driving areas from parking spots.

Help Negotiating with Insurance Carriers

To quickly resolve matters following an accident, insurance companies will offer you less than you deserve in compensation for your injuries. Many victims feel pressured to accept these offers as the bills begin to pile up, but that is rarely a good idea. The insurance company is looking to protect its bottom line; and will offer injured victims less than they deserve. An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to negotiate with the insurance company and can look out for your best interests by getting you the compensation you deserve after an injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is important to avoid negotiating or providing recorded statements to the insurance company without first seeking help from a qualified personal injury attorney.
