T-Bone Accident Lawyers in West Palm Beach - Florida Intersection Injury Attorneys on Your Side
T-bone or intersection accidents are often the most devastating types of car accidents in West Palm Beach and across South Florida. Due to the force of impact and speeds involved in an accident, T-bone crashes, also known as side-impact collisions, usually result in a totaled vehicle and serious, potentially life-threatening car accident injuries. To make matters worse, your accident might have been caused by a drunk driver, a driver who was texting and driving or a driver who sped through an intersection or made an illegal turn in front of you.
A T-bone accident can be a scary experience. Even a slow-speed, minor crash could result in a painful recovery process. Your losses may include medical bills and loss of income. Bills can pile up quickly. At the same time, the at-fault driver and the driver's insurance company might dispute your claim. They might even try to argue you caused the accident. If you or a loved one was injured or a loved one was killed in a T-bone or intersection accident, you will need someone to protect your rights. Call (800) 608-2965 immediately for a free consultation. A West Palm Beach T-bone accident lawyer at Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A., may be able to assist you.
How T-bone accidents happen
Typically, T-bone accidents happen in intersections. The following are a few scenarios of how such accidents may happen:
- A negligent driver fails to yield the right-of-way and turns in front of another car that has the right-of-way (typically a left turn accident).
- A negligent driver runs a stop sign or red light and broadsides another vehicle.
- A negligent driver pulls out of a parking lot or driveway into the path of another vehicle going straight on the road.
T-bone accidents or broadside collisions happen fast in South Florida. Even when another driver may clearly be at fault, these accidents are often difficult to prove due to disputes about who had the green light, who ran a red light or stop sign or who had the right-of-way.
