Side Impact Collisions: Overview

Side-impact accidents often occur between vehicles that are traveling at high speeds. The momentum of such a crash can be overwhelming to the occupants of the stricken car as well as the occupants of the striking car. T-bone collisions typically happen when a vehicle traveling through an intersection fails to stop or yield appropriately. These are often the most severe types of car accidents, often leading to:

  • Catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI), amputations, crush injuries, broken bones and spinal cord injuries
  • Fatalities, sometimes resulting from occupants being thrown far from the vehicles

T-bone accidents, where one vehicle strikes the driver’s side or the passengers’ side of another vehicle, offer occupants little chance of escape in many cases. Some car models are equipped with side airbags, but even this level of protection can be insufficient to counteract the strong force of a full-speed T-bone accident at a traffic light or stop sign intersection. This is especially true when the offending vehicle is a truck or SUV.

If you were injured in a T-bone accident in New York City, rest assured The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny is available to evaluate your case. If we represent you, we will work hard to discover the causes of the crash and vigorously pursue the compensation you need to cover expenses and acknowledge your pain and suffering or your loved one’s pain and suffering. Our track record of favorable outcomes is a good reason to entrust your case to our New York City personal injury law firm.
