Causes of T-Bone Accidents

Side Impact collisions are commonly the result of careless, reckless or hurried driving practices. It is not uncommon for the responsible party is simply not paying attention at the time of the accident. Some common examples are running a red light, not stopping at a stop sign or text messaging while operating a vehicle. Being intoxicated while driving or overall negligent driving are frequent causes of Side Impact Accidents in Delaware.

Injuries Possibly Caused By Right Angle Collisions

In a T-Bone accident there can be several types of injuries that differ from other types of auto accidents. In a right angle accident a driver or passenger is likely to experience head, neck, shoulder & spinal cord injuries. T-Bone accidents can also cause injuries to the lower extremities, particularly to the knees. This is due to the angle of the impact compared to a head on collision or rear end collision. Also, more severe injuries can occur at lower speeds in these types of accidents because the car is designed to crumple only for front and rear accidents and not side impact accidents. Also, air bag deployment technology differs slightly in a side impact crash opposed to head-on or rear end crashes. Vehicles have either no side air bags or fewer airbags front airbags.  This can dramatically affect the severity of injury.
