T-Bone Accident Attorney
Success is a must for this Fort Lauderdale T-Bone Car Accident Lawyer. A T-Bone accident is one in which one vehicle drives into the side of another. Many T-Bone crashes occur at intersections. This may happen when one vehicle runs through a red-light or a stop-sign and drives into the side of the other vehicle.
Because many T-Bone wrecks occur at intersections, there is oftentimes surveillance footage of the accidents. This videotape can be extremely important in the situation wherein driver A says that driver B ran the red light or stop sign and caused the accident, and driver B says that, to the contrary, driver A ran the red light or stop sign and caused the accident. In this scenario, the surveillance video footage will be crucial because it may be the only way to determine who was at fault for the accident.
If you’ve been involved in a T-bone accident at an intersection, it is extremely important that you contact Mr. Quackenbush as soon as possible. He will be able to get the surveillance videotape immediately. This is important because this footage is oftentimes set on a “loop.” This means that, after a certain amount of time, the video may start taping over itself. If this happens, then you may lose the footage forever. It is for this reason that it’s important to call Mr. Quackenbush as soon as possible.
Should you decide to hire this Fort Lauderdale T-Bone Car Accident Law Firm, he will do so on a contingency basis. This means that Mr. Quackenbush will not get paid for his work until you’ve made a recovery in your case, so there is absolutely no risk to you.

The impact from T-bone crashes is, by definition, on the side of the vehicle - so side airbags are crucial. Most vehicles today are designed and manufactured with airbags on their sides. This protects vehicle occupants in the case of a side impact.
Nevertheless, airbags do not always work. Sometimes vehicles are built without side airbags. If this is the case in your situation, then you may be able to pursue a case against the designer or manufacturer of your vehicle since safety standards today require side airbags.
However, you will only be able to pursue a case against the designer or manufacturer of your vehicle if it can be shown that your injuries would not have occurred, or would not have been as bad, if your vehicle had been equipped with side airbags. In order to prove this, this South Florida T-Bone Car Accident Attorney may hire an expert called a biomechanical engineer to evaluate the accident, evaluate your injuries, and determine if your injuries would have occurred and would have been just as bad even if your vehicle had contained side airbags.
On the other hand, sometimes airbags will be installed in a vehicle but will not deploy during a T-Bone wreck. If this is the case in your accident, you may have a case against the manufacturer of the airbags (for example, Takata, etc.). This is true even if some of the airbags deployed, but not all of them (including the side airbags). Again, in order to be successful in this type of case, you will need to prove that your injuries would not have occurred, or would not have been as bad, if the airbags had functioned properly.How can I prove that the other driver in my t-bone car accident caused/was at fault for the Accident? Answered by this South Florida T-Bone Car Accident Law Firm
Another thing that can be examined to determine who caused a T-bone accident occurring at an intersection is the light-timing sequencing. That is, an expert called an accident re-constructionist can “re-construct” the accident by evaluating the timing and sequencing of the red/green/yellow lights on the roadway and attempt to determine who had a red light versus green light at the time of the accident (or at the very least who was most likely to have a red light versus a green light). This information can give a better idea as to who was likely at fault for the crash.
Black box/Electronic Data Recorder (EDR)/GPS data can also give information on who was likely at fault for the crash. A black box is a device in most vehicles manufactured today that can give information on vehicle speeds, positions, directions at the time of an accident, etc. This data is obviously valuable in making the determination about accident fault. If one vehicle was speeding at the time of the accident, for example, that vehicle will most likely be found to have been at fault for the accident.
It will be important for this South Florida T-Bone Car Accident Lawyer to obtain this Black Box/EDR/GPS data as soon as possible. If he doesn’t, the other vehicle involved in your wreck may be disposed of, and the information may be lost forever. In order to prevent this, Mr. Quackenbush will typically send a “preservation letter,” which tells the other driver to preserve his or her vehicle (including the Black Box/EDR/GPS data). If he or she doesn’t, a judge can later grant you a “Valcyn Instruction,” which will instruct the jury in your case to presume that the information would have been favorable/good for you and unfavorable/bad for the other driver.
All sorts of injuries occur as a result of T-bone wrecks. However, one frequent injury caused is a herniated disc. During a side impact, a vehicle occupant’s neck can jerk to the side and back violently. Such movement is oftentimes worse than a front-to-back motion. This is because the neck is meant to move forwards and backwards, whereas it is not meant to move to the side to the same degree. As such, t-bone accidents can frequently cause cervical (i.e., neck) herniated discs.Speak to this Broward County T-Bone Car Accident Attorney Today
