There are two types of side-impact motor vehicle collisions. The first type is a “T” or a “T-bone” collision. This occurs when one vehicle approaches perpendicularly to another, forming the shape of a “T” when they collide. The other type is a “sideswipe” crash and occurs when two vehicles traveling parallel to one another converge. Either kind of collision can be deadly for individuals when one of the vehicles involved in the wreck is a large commercial truck.

With help from a Columbus side-impact truck accident lawyer, those injured in a T-bone or sideswipe collision may be successful in recovering compensation through a lawsuit. A dedicated truck attorney could assist in obtaining repayment for any medical costs they incurred, reimbursement for lost wages, and payment for pain, suffering, and trauma experienced.

Establishing Truck Driver Negligence

Negligence frequently causes sideswipe accidents and T-bone collisions. A truck driver who does not give adequate attention to driving safely behind the wheel may directly cause a wreck. Examples of behaviors that could lead to side-impact collisions include:

  • Speeding through intersections without obeying traffic control signs and signals
  • Attempting to “beat” a yellow light that is turning red
  • Trying to change lanes on a highway without first checking the truck’s blind spots
  • Failing to yield the right of way at intersections

If any other reasonable truck driver would have acted differently in the situation that led to the crash, then the driver may have behaved negligently. Truck operators may commit negligent acts because they are drowsy, under stress, under the influence, or simply inattentive. A Columbus T-bone crash attorney could gather evidence to prove the truck driver acted negligently.

Common Losses in a T-Bone Collision

If a truck driver acts negligently and causes a side-impact collision with another vehicle, that truck driver,  their employer, and potentially others may be responsible for paying compensation to the claimant. A skilled lawyer in Columbus could help determine who is liable for the sideswipe truck crash.

The compensation that plaintiffs may receive may address all the immediate and future losses they suffer. This could include the plaintiff’s:

  • Medical costs including surgeries, appointments, and procedures
  • Home healthcare assistance or assisted living expenses
  • Lost wages and diminished earning capacity because of injury-related limitations and treatment
  • Physical and emotional trauma they experienced because of their trauma

Claimants must be prepared to provide evidence to support any amount of compensation they are requesting through their lawsuits. Without bills, invoices, or compelling testimony, it may be difficult for plaintiffs to obtain the compensation they may need. Attorneys who represent injured Columbus motorists may help plaintiffs gather and present evidence in support of their claims.
