Common Causes and Injuries from T-Bone Trucking Accidents

One of the most devastating and likely fatal types of New Mexico trucking accidents are t-bone trucking accidents. These crashes are so devastating because the large front and heavy engine block front of the truck collides with the thin door side of a smaller, passenger car. This renders the front of the truck as a heavy battering ram and the side of the car with thin sheet metal. Victims in the smaller passenger vehicle are usually seriously injured because there is not a lot of cushion, buffer, crunch space, or other gaps between the front of the truck and the person’s body.

Our Albuquerque trucking accident lawyers know how devastating and dangerous these types of crashes are. Many times, t-bone trucking accidents are the result of negligence by virtue of how the collision occurs. This is because the collision occurs when one vehicle has not yielded or stopped. Often this is a truck driver who is rushing, tired, fatigued, or otherwise reckless. If you or a loved one have suffered serious personal injuries, or if a loved one has been wrongfully killed in a t-bone auto accident, ask our New Mexico trucking accident lawyers in Albuquerque how we can help.

Common Causes of T-Bone Trucking Accidents

There are many common causes of t-bone trucking accidents, this is usually because there are many ways to violate the New Mexico vehicle and traffic laws. Yes, indeed, many t-bone trucking accidents are caused by reckless, careless, or downright negligent conduct by a truck driver. This is because it is not common for a truck to t-bone the side of another vehicle unless someone has failed to follow a sign, traffic light, or other rule of the road.

Some of the most common causes include the following:

  • Running a red light;
  • Failing to yield;
  • Running a stop sign;
  • Going straight in a turn lane;
  • Unsafe left turns;
  • Speeding;
  • Losing control of the vehicle;
  • Improper u-turns;
  • Unsafe backing up;
  • Improper lane changes or lane mergers;
  • Dangerous turns;
  • Disobeying a traffic officer; and
  • Many other common causes.

Injuries from T-bone Trucking Accidents

Due to the fact that trucks colliding with any motor vehicle usually results in serious injuries, and given that a t-bone trucking accident is more likely to result in serious personal injuries because the truck is colliding with the most vulnerable portion of a passenger vehicle, victims may have significant damages. Some of the most common damages and injuries from t-bone trucking accidents include the following:

  • Amputations;
  • Broken bones;
  • Spinal cord injuries;
  • Traumatic brain injuries;
  • Burn injuries;
  • Organ injuries;
  • Nerve injuries;
  • Significant disfigurement;
  • Spinal fusions;
  • Joint replacements;
  • Wrongful death; and
  • Other types of damages.
