T-Bone/Broadside Accidents

Helping injured victims in Columbus recover financial compensation

Intersections can be very busy and at time, very dangerous. T-bone accidents - also called broadside accidents - can leave drivers and passengers severely injured. The driver that caused the crash may deny responsibility, and insurance companies may try to keep payouts as low as possible. The T-bone accident attorneys at Smith Law Office fight for your rights.

These crashes usually happen when one driver is driving straight through an intersection while another is making a turn. One car crashes into the side of the other, in a "T" shape. Many people don't know what to do after being involved in a car accident. It's important to have an experienced car accident lawyer on your side as soon as possible.

T-bone/broadside accidents can have different causes, usually related to the negligence of another driver. The driver may have been distracted, such as by texting while driving. The driver may have recklessly run a red light, and/or was speeding. Some drivers involved in these accident were under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. Others were falling asleep at the wheel.
