A T-bone car crash, also known as a side impact or broadside collision, is one of the most serious types of car accidents to occur on roads in the UK. This type of accident occurs when one vehicle hits the side of another vehicle and can often result in the passenger or driver being partially ejected from the car. If you’ve been injured in this type of collision and you believe that somebody else was to blame – usually the driver of the other vehicle – then you could make a claim for personal injury compensation, provided it has been three years or less since your accident happened. Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of people claim compensation after these types of collisions, and we could help you too.
How does a T-bone car crash happen?
A T-bone car crash occurs most commonly at a stop sign, traffic lights or a junction. The injuries caused in this type of accident have the potential to be more serious than injuries sustained in other types of car accidents, as broken windows or a crumbled car door frame could cause significant injuries. Facial injuries leading to scarring and disfigurement are not uncommon, whilst fractures, head and brain injuries are also commonly sustained injuries in a side impact collision.
If you or somebody you love has sustained serious (or minor) injuries in a collision caused by somebody else’s negligence then you could make a claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline will take into account not only the severity of your injuries but also the impact they have on your life. So if you’re unable to return to work, you could receive compensation for lost earnings.
Claiming compensation after a T-bone collision
If another driver ran a red light and collided with the side of your vehicle, or failed to give way at a junction and smashed into your car, you’re perfectly entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. You could find you’re eligible to claim for even minor injuries such as cuts, bruises or a concussion, so it is well worth while getting in touch with Accident Advice Helpline after your accident to explore your options.
