What Is A T-Bone Or A Side-Impact Car Accident?

A side-impact car accident, often referred to as a T-bone accident, happens when a car is hit on the side by the front or rear of another car. The cars are positioned perpendicularly to one another, forming the shape of a “T.”

Here is an example of a T-bone or side-impact car accident:

Imagine you are being a cautious driver, following the rules of the road by making a complete stop at an intersection because there is a red light. When the light turns green, you proceed through the intersection when, suddenly, your car is hit by another car on the driver’s side.

In 2017, T-bone or side-impact car accidents accounted for 24% of passenger vehicle occupant deaths according to The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)’s Fatality Facts.

Vehicle Occupant Deaths by Point-Of-Impact and Vehicle Type, 2017

A driver exposed to a Buffalo, New York T-bone car, truck or SUV personal injury accident has three (3) areas of impact:

  1. Impact to the car;
  2. Impact to the body; and
  3. Impact to the internal organs.

Any car accident can have damaging and long lasting effects. Statistically, injuries from T-bone and side-impact car accidents tend to be more serious than other personal injury accident types.

How Do T-Bone And Side-Impact Car Accidents Happen? Car Accident Graphic

T-bone and side-impact car accidents happen every day in Buffalo, New York; Rochester, New York; Niagara Falls, New York and throughout New York State. The alarming fact is that side-impact car tests did not start until 2003, through a test program by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), even though the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been crash testing cars since 1979, according to a history of car safety by crashtest.org.

There are many reasons that explain why T-bone and side-impact car, truck and SUV accidents take place. The most obvious reason is distracted driving. Additional reasons include:

  1. Running Red Lights. Some drivers try to speed through traffic lights before they turn red.
  2. Impaired Driving. This reduces a driver’s judgment while driving.
  3. Failure to Yield. A driver who fails to yield can easily cause an accident, crashing into a driver who may have been yielding or giving the right-of-way.
  4. Poor Visibility. Sometimes, it is hard to see other drivers because of weather and other factors such as trees and landscaping.
