Austin T-Bone Accident Lawyer
The Stewart Law Firm, PLLC Can Protect Your Rights
When drivers fail to pay attention at intersections, T-bone accidents can
happen. Due to the nature of these accidents, victims often suffer
catastrophic injuries or death. If a driver fails to stop and blows through a stop sign or stop
light, or fails to properly yield, his or her vehicle can slam into other
vehicles or pedestrians who are following traffic laws.
Negligent drivers should be held accountable for their actions. This can
be done through a
personal injury claim. While your insurance company or the other driver's insurance
company may have already reached out to you for a settlement, we encourage
you not to talk to them. Instead, seek legal representation from The Stewart
Law Firm, PLLC.
Common Causes of T-Bone Accidents
Often referred to as broadside crashes, side-sweeps, or T-bone collisions,
they all involve one vehicle crashing into another vehicle in some type
of perpendicular form. In these
car accidents, the person closest to the impact is usually the most seriously injured.
No matter what caused your accident, we will seek to hold all negligent
Generally, the most common causes of T-bone collisions include:
- Running through a stop sign or red light
- Failure to yield to other vehicles at a stop sign
- Failure to yield while taking a right-hand or left-hand turn
- Failure to yield properly to pedestrians or bicyclists
- Driving while distracted (texting or looking at cell phone)
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
There can also be secondary impacts after being hit initially in the T-bone
collision, knocking the vehicle into another oncoming vehicle. When this
happens multiple times, the injuries are often catastrophic or fatal in
nature. Our dedicated car accident lawyer in Austin can help you or your
