Philadelphia T-Bone Accident Attorney
One of the most dangerous kind of motor vehicle accident is one that involves a side collision, also known as a T-Bone collision. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, impacts to the side of a passenger car is the second leading cause of vehicle accident fatalities and serious injuries (the number one cause is frontal crashes). Side impact accidents are particularly dangerous because there are no deep, crushable metal structures between the occupant and the impacting vehicle or object. As a result, the door collapses into the passenger at a significant speed.
The lack of adequate barriers for passengers makes side impacts quite dangerous. The NHTSA reported that in 2001 nearly 10,000 people died in side impact vehicle collisions. The type and severity of an injury in a side impact crash will necessarily depend on several factors, including the speed of the accident, location of the impact, and size of the passenger.
