T-Bone or Intersection Accidents Can Result in Severe Injuries for Motorcyclists
T-bone collisions can be a motorcyclist’s worst nightmare. These types of accidents occur when a car, truck or other vehicle hits a motorcycle broadside. In most situations, the driver either runs a red light, ignores a stop sign, or otherwise fails to yield the right-of-way and strikes the motorcycle at a perpendicular angle.
When a motor vehicle crashes into the side of a motorcycle, the biker is likely to sustain grave injuries. Unlike a car, a motorcycle offers very little protection to its riders. Without the benefit of airbags, crumple zones and the steel frame of a car, bikers who are hit broadside by an automobile or truck often suffer from:
- Lower extremity injuries
- Chest/rib injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Road rash
- Skull fractures
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Permanent impairment
We Will Thoroughly Investigate Your Case to Establish Liability
If you are a motorcyclist who has been injured in a T-bone or Intersection collision, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as you are physically able to do so. These types of crashes tend to be very complicated and are best handled by an attorney who knows how to properly investigate a T-bone collision to establish liability. The Bullhead City personal injury lawyers at Hirsch & Lyon Accident Law P.L.L.C. have decades of combined experience representing bikers who have been seriously injured in all types of motorcycle accidents.
Oftentimes when a motorcyclist is injured in a T-bone collision, the insurance company will try to claim that the biker, rather than the driver of the vehicle, was at fault for the accident. Our firm is very familiar with this scenario and the many other tactics insurance companies will use to avoid paying out in motorcycle accident claims. We also know that these types of claims can be extraordinarily challenging to win without credible witness testimony. When you hire our firm, we will launch a comprehensive investigation to locate all eyewitnesses to your crash. In a T-bone or Intersection accident case, the statements of witnesses are essential in building a strong case that proves the liability of the other driver.
