Side Impact Collisions
BOSTON CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY HELPS SIDE IMPACT COLLISION VICTIMS
In my experience with injuries to Massachusetts auto accident victims, side impact from T-bone collisions can be the most devastating. We have represented families where wrongful death has resulted from side impact collisions. Broken bones are common. No matter what the injury, motor vehicle riders are often subject to serious injuries when their bodies are so close to the locus of impact. Victims riding in the vehicle striking the other vehicle, are often injured by the air bag or steering wheel.
SIDE IMPACT COLLISIONS AND MASSACHUSETTS LAW
Motor vehicle accidents that are caused by impacts from the side are often called T-Bone collisions or side angle crashes. They occur when the front of one vehicle collides into the side of another vehicle. In our experience they result in serious injuries more often than any other type of collision. They are statistically the second most deadly. This is because vehicles are the thinnest in the sides, passengers are close to the impact locus, and many vehicles do not have side airbags.
There is no rule of law in Massachusetts determining fault in a T-Bone accident. Fault is assigned by determining who caused the accident. Who was negligent? In an intersection collision, the law and the insurance companies look at who had the right of way. They often look at the relative speed of the vehicles. Impartial witnesses can be critical. When there are such witnesses, Massachusetts insurance companies call them immediately and take statements. They often misquote those statements throughout the investigation of the claim.
