Mobile Broadside Accident Lawyer
Who is at fault in a T-bone collision?
One of the most common types of car accidents we often deal with at our law firm involves one driver crashing into the side of another vehicle. These accidents are known as T-bone or broadside car accidents.
Injuries sustained by drivers and passengers in such car accidents are often serious. In certain circumstances, T-bone car accidents can result in fatalities, especially if the person was on the side of the car hit directly by another vehicle.
We understand the seriousness of such crashes at Dean Waite & Associates, LLC. That’s why we want to help. We can deal with insurance companies and handle all the paperwork so you can focus on what really matters – your recovery. We’re here for you when you need us most.
Why T-bone accidents happen
There are many reasons why T-bone car accidents happen. Often, it’s because someone runs a red light or a stop sign and crashes into the side of another car. This may have happened because of:
- Texting while driving
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Speeding through a red light
- Drinking and driving
- Aggressive driving
Whatever the cause of your broadside accident, we want to work with you and help you hold the other driver accountable for his or her actions.
We’re on your side
You might think there’s no rush to take legal action after your T-bone car accident. But the reality is the clock starts ticking the second after your crash. Technically, you have up to two years to file a lawsuit in Alabama after your car accident. But it’s important to take legal action long before then.
The longer you wait, the harder it becomes to find the facts you need to build a strong legal case. Evidence disappears over time. Memories can fade. Witnesses might move away.
It’s also important to realize that the insurance company for the other driver will likely start investigating your crash right away. That’s because they’re often looking for any excuse to deny your claim. Level the playing field. Contact us and schedule a free case evaluation with a car accident lawyer at our law firm today.
