T-Bone New Mexico Car Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries and Death to Victims

There are not many types of New Mexico car accidents scarier then a t-bone car accident.  These types of car accidents frequently result in very serious personal injuries and even death to occupants hit in the t-boned vehicle.  This is became the side panels of car are a lot thinner and without a crunch zone, thus placing very little between the oncoming car and the occupant of the car.  Whereas the front of the car has a large crunch zone and engine block separating the occupants from danger.  Without question, those usually injured or killed in a t-bone collision are the occupants of the vehicle that are t-boned—not the occupants of the vehicle which hits head on.

Causes of T-Bone New Mexico Car Accidents

As noted above, t-bone car accidents are very dangerous for the occupants of the vehicle being t-boned due to the lack of a crunch zone and lack of safety equipment for that type of impact.  For instance, car seats and seatbelts are designed for rear end and front accidents.  They have the head restraint to accommodate that forward and back motion.  A t-bone car accident causes a side-to-side motion which is completely unsupported.  More and more vehicles nowadays have side curtains, but this still does not support the head and neck completely.

Beyond the safety equipment and physics, most t-bone car accidents are caused by the negligence—if not gross negligence—of one or more drivers.  Indeed, most instances of t-bone car accidents can be fully prevented.  This includes the following causes of t-bone car accidents:

  • Running a red light;
  • Failing to yield;
  • Excessive speed;
  • Running a stop sign;
  • Failing to stop due to snow and ice;
  • Unable to see due to low visibility such as during a dust storm;
  • Mechanical failure of brakes;
  • Tire blowout;
  • Inexperienced driver;
  • Distracted driving;
  • Drunk driving or driving while ability impaired;
  • Street racing;
  • Texting while driving;
  • Unable to see due to overloaded vehicle;
  • Speeding through a roundabout;
  • Speeding to beat a yellow light;
  • Driving too fast in a parking lot;
  • Backing out of a parking spot too fast; and
  • Many other types of collisions.
