T-Bone car accidents, also known as side-impact collisions, can cause drivers and passengers to suffer severe injuries. These accidents are unique because unlike other types of collisions, such as rear-end or head-on collisions, victims of T-bone collisions are only separated from the colliding vehicle by a thin door and window.
With any Texas roads, there are various commercial trucks that travel on a daily and nightly basis. While sometimes careful, they sometimes result in fatal crashes. A standard semi-truck weighs an average of 4,000 pounds while a large vehicle can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Because of the nature of their size, weight, and force, getting involved in a semi-truck accident can result in thousands in damages.
