Miami T-Bone Car Accidents Attorney

Questions Answered by this Miami T-Bone Car Accident Attorney

T-bone accidents occur when a driver hits a vehicle on the passenger or the driver’s side. The accidents are called T-bone since one car is moving straight whereas another car hits it from the side. T-bone crashes happen when one vehicle fails to yield right of way as necessary under the traffic rules. T-bone wrecks can cause serious injuries because the sides of cars typically provide little protection against the force of an impact. If you or a loved one are involved in a T-bone collision, contact Mr. Quackenbush.

Most T-Bone accidents take place at intersections. If your accident occurred at an intersection, you should check whether or not the intersection had surveillance cameras. If the intersection had cameras, then the accident might have beed recorded by those surveillance cameras. It is important to get the video footage of your accident as soon as possible because most of the red light cameras are on loops which means that they tape over themselves every so often. So you should attempt to obtain the video footage quickly because it might be lost if you don’t.

This footage can help in the case where driver A says that driver B ran the stop sign or red light and caused the accident and driver B says that driver A ran the red light or stop sign and caused the accident. In this situation, the video footage will help to prove which driver was responsible for the accident. If you have been involved in a T-Bone accident anywhere in the State of Florida (including West Palm Beach, Palm Beach County, Fort Lauderdale, and Broward County), hire Mr. Quackenbush.

This Miami T-Bone Car Accident Lawyer Answers Questions Regarding Airbags

The impact of T-bone accidents is, by definition, on the side of the vehicle - so side airbags are vital. Nowadays, most vehicles are manufactured and designed with airbags on their sides. These side airbags protect occupants of the vehicle in the case of a side impact. However, airbags do not always work. Some vehicles are built with no side airbags. If this is the case in your situation, then you might be able to pursue a case against the designer or manufacturer of your vehicle because these days safety standards require side airbags.

On the other hand, you will only be able to file a case against the designer or manufacturer of your vehicle if it can be shown that your injuries would not have happened, or would not have been as bad, if your vehicle had been built with side airbags. In order to prove this, Mr. Quackenbush might hire a specialist called a biomechanical engineer to evaluate the accident, evaluate your injuries, and figure out if your injuries would have happened or would have been just as bad even if your vehicle had proper side airbags.

Alternatively, at times airbags will be installed in a vehicle but will not deploy during a T Bone accident. If this is the case in your wreck, you might pursue a case against the manufacturer of the airbags. This can be the case even if some of the airbags deployed but not all of them (including the side airbags). Yet again, in order to win in this type of case, you will have to prove that your injuries would not have happened, or would not have been as severe, if the airbags had worked correctly.

Light-timing sequencing can also be examined to find out who caused a T-bone accident at an intersection. That is, a specialist called an accident re-constructionist can “re-construct” the wreck by evaluating the timing and sequencing of the red/green/yellow signals at the intersection and try to figure out who had a red light versus green light at the time of the wreck (or at the very least who was more likely to have a red light versus a green light). By getting this information, we can get a better idea as to who was most likely at fault for the accident.

One more thing that can also provide information on who was likely at fault for the accident is Black box/Electronic Data Recorder (EDR)/GPS data. Nowadays, most vehicles are manufactured with a device called a black box that can give information on vehicle positions, directions and speeds at the time of an accident. This data is extremely helpful in making the determination about accident liability (i.e., who was at fault). If at the time of the accident, one vehicle was traveling at a high speed or over the speed limit, for instance, that vehicle will almost certainly be found to have been responsible for the accident.

If you choose Mr. Quackenbush to represent you in your case, then it will be important to get this Black Box/EDR/GPS data as soon as possible. If you do not obtain this Black Box/EDR/GPS data immediately, the information might be lost forever. In order to avoid this, Mr. Quackenbush will usually send a “preservation letter” to the other driver, which tells him or her to preserve (and not destroy) his or her vehicle (including the Black Box/EDR/GPS data). If he or she does not do this, a judge can, later on, grant you a “Valcyn Instruction” - which will instruct the jurors in your case to presume that the information would have been unfavorable/bad for the other driver and favorable/good for you.

Several kinds of injuries can take place as a result of T-bone accidents. One common injury caused by T-bone accidents is a herniated disc. During a side impact, a vehicle occupant’s neck can jerk to the side and back aggressively. Such movement is sometimes worse than a front-to-back movement. This is because the neck is meant to move forward and backward, while it is not meant to move to the side to the same degree. As such, T-bone wrecks can often cause cervical (that is neck) herniated discs.
