Following a side-impact crash, it may take an injured party a significant amount of time to fully recover, and unfortunately, some injuries could leave a permanent impact on an individual’s quality of life. When these accidents happen, a practiced attorney could help you file a legal claim against the responsible driver.

There are two basic types of side-impact crashes: T-bone and broadside collisions. A T-bone crash occurs when the front end of one car impacts the side of another. A broadside collision involves the sides of two vehicles striking each other. Both types of accidents could result in serious injury.

If you are involved in a T-bone wreck, you may be entitled to pursue monetary compensation from the driver responsible with the help of a qualified car wreck attorney. A Columbus side-impact car accident lawyer could assist you with the claims process.

Common Injuries in a Side-Impact Collision

The injuries in a T-bone collision can be severe for a few distinct reasons. First, the sides of most vehicles are not designed to absorb impact to the same degree as the front or rear. Frequently, only a thin layer of metal or glass stands between a person and the oncoming vehicle. Therefore, the resulting impact could cause more damage than other types of collisions.

Additionally, while the seatbelts and airbags in a vehicle are carefully designed for front or rear accidents, they offer less protection from broadside collisions. In fact, some vehicles lack side-impact airbags entirely, resulting in serious injuries to the passengers inside. Some common injuries in a side-impact accident may include:

  • Whiplash
  • Fractured neck
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Cuts
  • Bruises
  • Burns

It is important for anyone injured in an accident to address their injuries immediately. A driver’s health and wellbeing is the most important thing, and avoiding treatment could only make an injury worse.

Seeking treatment following a T-bone car accident also could make the job of an attorney in Columbus easier. Insurance companies often deny claims when a motorist fails to seek immediate medical treatment. By seeing a doctor for even minor injuries, a motorist could improve their chance for monetary recovery.

Recovering Compensation in a T-Bone Accident Lawsuit

A Columbus attorney could seek compensation on behalf of someone involved in a broadside car accident. These damages may cover physical, emotional, and financial losses.

The treatment of bodily injuries is a major part of many accident claims. In addition to the cost of an emergency room visit, a plaintiff also could recoup expenses related to chiropractic care, surgical procedures, and medical devices.

The emotional damages that come with a crash are subjective. Compensation could be available for pain and suffering, mental anguish, or the loss of consortium. A plaintiff also may be eligible to pursue monetary damages for the cost of repairing or replacing their vehicle if it was damaged in the accident.
