T-Bone Accidents

Written by Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton Injury Lawyer

Edmonton T-Bone Accident Lawyer

I am Joseph A. Nagy, and I am an experienced Edmonton injury lawyer serving central and northern Alberta. I specialize in injuries from motor vehicle accidents and I have dealt with many T-bone accident cases where severe injury has occurred.

Witness evidence may be crucial to determine fault in T-bone accident cases. Often these types of accidents occur at traffic controlled intersections.

  • Disputes commonly occur over speed, distance, timing, the color of a traffic light, vehicle right of way.
  • Sometimes, liability for the accident is highly disputed, even though you are not at fault for the accident.
  • The other party may or may not have been convicted of a traffic offence arising out of the collision.
  • Or the other party may have several occupants in their vehicle, and they may not tell the truth about how the accident happened.

An independent accident investigator should be retained to obtain independent witness statements to strengthen your case. Consulting a qualified personal injury lawyer is critical.

If you were not wearing a seat belt, you should know that there are many fact specific judicial rulings on how much compensation should be reduced. Each circumstance is fact specific.

What Is a T-Bone Accident?

T-bone accidents occur when two vehicles collide at right angles. Usually, the at-fault driver fails to stop or yield right of way at an intersection, causing the collision. Orthopedic injuryspinal cord injury, and head injuries such as traumatic brain injury are common in high speed t-bone collisions.

What If I Wasn’t Wearing a Seat Belt?

In high speed t-bone accidents, wearing a seat belt can sometimes cause a more severe spinal cord injury. The insurance company of the driver who caused the accident will argue for lower compensation because you were not wearing your seat belt. Contact a qualified injury lawyer for help.
