A “T-bone” car accident, also known as a broadside or side-impact collision, is a type of traffic crash that involves a car hitting the side of another car with its front end, forming a shape of the letter “T.”
T-bone accidents are dangerous compared to other types of traffic collisions because the occupants in the car that is hit on the side are only separated from the colliding vehicle by a thin door and window with minimal safety features.
Liability in a T-bone collision may be shared among the involved drivers and/or other third parties or fall entirely on one party, depending on the circumstances of the crash.
Investigators must determine who had the right-of-way and if any driver violated any other traffic law, such as DUI or speeding.
