Side Impact Car Accident Lawsuit
Our vehicles are manufactured to keep us safe while driving. The bumpers are reinforced and airbags are required by all states. A t-bone crash is a collision that happens as one vehicle is broadsided. Unfortunately, there is not as much protection on the sides of cars. In fact, broadside collisions are the cause of about a quarter of passenger fatalities in this country. Side airbags are now becoming standard industry practice, but there are still vehicles on the road that do not have this protection.
