T-Bone Accident Lawyers in Kansas City
40 Years of Combined Experience Serving Kansas & Missouri
T-bone collisions go by other names as well, including broadside collisions and side-impact collisions. They are common car accidents with a high rate of catastrophic injuries, as one car rams into another's side, usually in an intersection. The car that is struck absorbs most of the force. Side panel protection may include "crumple zones," which absorb some impact.
Depending on the point of collision, the cab of the car is often violated, and passengers in the struck car occupy the same space as the oncoming car. Resulting injuries include amputations, crushed bones, disfiguring lacerations, spinal cord injuries, brain damage and more. Despite the growing use of side airbags, many side-impact collisions cause fatalities.

Causes of T-Bone Collisions
T-bone accidents are only compensable when an element of negligence contributes to the crash.
Examples of this negligence may include things like:
- The driver of the oncoming car is driving too fast.
- The driver of the oncoming car has been drinking alcohol or is distracted.
- The driver of the oncoming car switches lanes or swerves.
- The driver of the paused car is turning against the light.
- The paused car fails to acknowledge right of way.
- The paused car may have malfunctioning turn signals.
- Brake failure prevents the advancing car from slowing.
- The side airbag fails to deploy.
