The Devastating Effects of T-Bone Collisions
Regardless of how you refer to them – T-bone, broadside, or right-angle – side impact collisions are some of the most dangerous accidents on our South Carolina roadways. When the front end of one vehicle slams into the side of another vehicle it can cause severe damage and injuries. This is due to the fact the passengers are particularly vulnerable when a car is struck on its side. T-bone collisions can result in wide range of injuries, such as:
- Broken Bones
- Hip and Shoulder Displacement
- Permanent Hearing Loss
- Internal Organ Damage
- Brain Trauma
- Spinal Cord Injury
The risk of severe injuries is even greater in side impact collisions involving incompatible car types. The Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine published a detailed article on this subject which can be view by clicking here.
What Are the Common Causes of T-Bone Accidents?
Side impact crashes often occur at intersections. As drivers, it is our collective responsibility to obey all traffic laws, yield the right-of-way, and avoid oncoming cars. Negligent motorist behaviors that typically cause side impact collisions include:
- Running Red Lights and Stop Signs
- Making Ill-Advised Turns
- Distracted Driving
- Reckless Driving
- Drunk Driving
Mechanical issues like brake failure and poor weather and road conditions can also cause these accidents.
