T-bone Truck Accidents

Like when passenger vehicles are involved, a T-bone truck collision happens when the front end of a semi-truck or commercial-size truck hits the side of a passenger vehicle. These accidents generally occur at an intersection. As in any accident between a big rig and a passenger vehicle, the weight of a commercial-sized truck compared to a passenger vehicle can cause severe damage, injuries, and even death. 

If you or a loved one has experienced a T-bone truck collision, an experienced truck accident lawyer in Hamilton, Ohio can help you determine if you could be eligible to receive compensation. 

What Causes T-bone Truck Accidents?

As we mentioned, T-bone truck accidents are most likely to happen at an intersection. Most often we see these accidents as a result of the following:

  • A driver runs a red traffic light
  • A driver tries to speed through a traffic light

All drivers on the road need to take extra caution in following driving rules and regulations at all times. This is especially true for truck drivers as one mistake can have catastrophic results. 

Who is Liable in T-bone Truck Accidents?

In order to receive compensation for injuries in a truck accident, the injured party will need to prove that the truck driver’s negligence led to the accident. The negligent party would then be held liable for the accident. 

The trucking company may also face liability if it uses lackadaisical or downright non-existent hiring protocols to ensure the hiring of safe drivers or when the truck company doesn’t teach safe driving practices to their truckers. Also, if brakes, steering, headlights, and other mechanical parts of the big rig were defective at the time of the wreck, the manufacturer or the trucking company may be responsible for these potentially-deadly collisions.

The liable party will vary based on the unique events that cause the collision.
