These type of side impact collisions can result in a great deal of property damage and serious injury for those involved.

Why are T-Bone Crashes so Dangerous?
In a side-impact crash, passengers are vulnerable because of the lack of protection within the vehicles side panels, and the speed at which most t-bone crashes occur.
Common Causes of Side Impact Accidents
Most of these types of collisions happen at traffic intersections, but there are numerous scenarios that can result in a serious side impact crash.
Some of the most common include:
- Driver distraction
- Driving while intoxicated (DUI/DWI)
- Driving recklessly
- Texting & driving
Very often a driver may fail to stop at a stop sign or traffic signal, causing a t-bone crash at a high rate of speed. The injuries that arise from these accidents tend to be more severe and may even result in death.
