T-Bone/Broadside Accident Lawyer Serving Gilbert, Arizona
An experienced attorney who is focused on getting results
Intersections in any city are very busy places. There’s a steady stream of vehicles traveling in different directions. Some drivers speed up to get through the light. Others don’t look carefully when making turns. The result is often a T-bone accident, also called a broadside accident. And people can be left with serious injuries.
If you were hurt in a car accident caused by negligence, you deserve financial compensation. But that can be a complicated process. That’s why you need legal representation from a law firm that knows how to get results. Arizona car accident attorney Byron Browne of Browne Law Group can help.
Holding negligent drivers accountable
Why are they called “T-bone accidents”? It’s because of the shape that two vehicles make after the collision. One car usually crashes into the side of another, and it looks like the letter “T.” These types of crashes can cause a lot of damage, and determining fault for the accident can be messy. Each driver may blame the other.
How do these accidents happen? In one scenario, a car starts traveling north through an intersection right after the light turns green. But a car traveling west speeds up and runs a red light, crashing into the first car. Or a driver making a left turn fails to check for oncoming traffic, and another driver is unable to stop in time, resulting in a crash.
There are also other types of negligence that can lead to T-bone accidents, in addition to speeding and failing to check for oncoming traffic. They include running stop signs, texting behind the wheel, drowsy driving, and driving under the influence.
But negligent drivers typically deny doing anything wrong and refuse to accept responsibility.
Insurance companies will fight your claim. We fight back.
When you’ve been hurt in a crash, the insurance company is supposed to help. But the truth is they are much more concerned about saving money. They’ll try to limit your compensation in different ways. They may question the seriousness of your injuries. Or they’ll try to argue that your injuries were pre-existing and aren’t covered.
Another trick they use is to offer you a settlement shortly after the accident. Why is it a trick? Because they have no intention of giving you the compensation you deserve. Their offer will be far short of covering all of your damages. They’re hoping you won’t notice. And once you agree to a settlement, that’s it. You won’t be able to get any more money from them.
You may also be blamed for causing the crash, at least partially. That’s important because Arizona has a comparative negligence law. If you are found partially to blame, you can still recover compensation, but it will be reduced by your percentage of fault. So if you’re awarded $100,000 in compensation but found to be 30% at fault, you can only recover $70,000.
