In a T-bone accident, the front end of one vehicle strikes the side of another vehicle. These types of accidents can result in serious injuries, especially to occupants on the side that suffered the brunt of the impact.

Where These Accidents Happen
T-bone accidents frequently occur at intersections or in parking lots as a result of failure to yield the right of way. They can also be caused by distracted drivers who are talking on cellphones or texting rather than paying attention to the roadway. In many broadside collisions, the vehicles are turned or spun from their original directions. In some instances, they may even be rolled over.
Because the sides of vehicles are generally far less protected than the front or rear, T-bone accident injuries can be severe and may include:
- Head injuries
- Broken bones
- Shoulder injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
Side-impact air bags provide a limited amount of protection to vehicle occupants. They are only able to provide protection during the initial impact. Since T-bone accidents often produce multiple impacts, victims are unprotected during subsequent collisions.
