South Florida Side-Impact Collision/T-bone Accident Attorneys Fighting For Your Rights In West Palm Beach & Port St. Lucie
Representing the Rights of Injured Victims of T-Bone Collisions in South Florida
Side-impact collisions, which are sometimes also called T-bone accidents, occur when the front of one vehicle collides with the side of another vehicle. These accidents are common at traffic intersections – especially when the driver of one vehicle fails to yield the right of way to another vehicle when it’s appropriate to do so.
A side-impact collision or t-bone accident that occurs at a high rate of speed could cause the impacted vehicle to spin around rapidly – or even to flip over on its top or side. Consequently, victims of these accidents can suffer serious and traumatic injuries and damages.

Why Do Side-Impact Collisions Occur?
Side-impact collisions that occur at traffic intersections and elsewhere are typically the result of carelessness or recklessness of the part of another driver. The other driver, for example, might be disregarding a traffic light – or trying to ‘beat’ the light before it turns red.
The at-fault driver may also be speeding or violating some other rule of the road or engaging in distracted driving, such as by texting and driving. Finally, the driver of the at-fault vehicle might be intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, altering his or her driving abilities.
Who Will Pay my Damages in the Event I’m Injured in a T-bone Accident?
Since Florida is a no-fault state, drivers who are involved in a car accident must first turn to their own insurance companies for compensation following an accident. Florida drivers are required to carry a minimum of $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) insurance coverage. But what if your medical treatment and lost wages exceed that amount? When that is the case, the injured driver could file a claim or lawsuit against the other driver (and indirectly against the at-fault driver’s insurance company) seeking compensation and damages for injuries suffered in the accident. An injured driver might be eligible to recover medical damages, lost wages, and various types of pain and suffering compensation.
