A T-bone accident occurs when the front of one vehicle crashes into the side of a second vehicle. This type of accident will usually cause very serious damage to the second vehicle. Furthermore, the driver in that vehicle will likely be severely injured, especially if the crash occurred on the driver’s side. But even if the crash occurred on the passenger side, anyone else in the vehicle will probably suffer severe injuries too. These could be life-changing injuries that cause permanent disability or several years of physical therapy.

A T-bone accident will often take place at intersections where two or more roads cross each other from opposite directions. For instance, Jersey City is a place which has a lot of heavy traffic at its intersections. If every driver followed the traffic laws and drove safely, there would not be any accidents at these intersections. However, if a drunk or distracted driver were to drive through a red light or stop sign at a busy intersection, they will almost certainly T-bone another vehicle that is traveling perpendicular to them. This type of accident may even cause a chain reaction of fender benders and rear-end collisions by the other vehicles behind them too. If you have been involved in a T-bone accident in Jersey City, contact the Bhatt Law Group by calling 201-798-8000 to speak to a Jersey City T-Bone accident attorney.

Jersey City T-Bone Accident Injuries

The front of any vehicle is a powerful force when it collides with something. At least in head-on and rear collisions, the hood and trunk will reduce the impact of most minor accidents. But in a T-bone accident, the only shield between the driver and the other vehicle is the side car door. Because of this, the injuries sustained from a T-bone accident can be quite severe. In most cases, this will not just be a little bump on the side of the door either. The at-fault driver will likely be speeding or driving over 25 miles-per-hour before they crash into the side of your vehicle. This is not the type of accident that you can just walk away from with only a few scratches.

Below are the most common injuries which are inflicted on the victims of T-bone accidents:

  • Severely injured limbs (leading to amputation)
  • Whiplash and other neck injuries
  • Torn ligaments and muscles
  • Bone and joint injuries
  • Rib Fractures
  • Punctured Lungs
  • Disfigurement
  • Scarring
  • Fractured Pelvis
  • Burns (2nd and 3rd degree)
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Paralysis

As you can see, these are all serious injuries which will require years of rehabilitation and therapeutic treatment. You should not have to deal with these injuries alone. As a victim of a T-bone accident, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. Call 201-798-8000 to talk with a Jersey City T-bone accident attorney and learn more about your rights as a T-bone accident victim.

New Jersey T-Bone Accident Laws

You might think that T-bone accidents are rare, but they actually happen more frequently than you think. In fact, over 9,000 Americans are killed each year from side-impact collisions, such as T-bone accidents. The only type of car accident that kills more people is head-on collisions. According to the New Jersey Department of Transportation, over 57,100 accidents occurred at intersections in the state back in 2016. This comes out to roughly 34% of all the crashes on the county roads and municipal roads in New Jersey.

If you have been injured in a T-bone accident, the first thing you need to do is seek immediate medical attention. Once you can use the telephone, you need to file a claim with your insurance company. If you are incapacitated for an extended period of time because of your injuries, a family member or attorney can talk to your insurance company on your behalf.

It is important that you file your insurance claim as soon as possible because New Jersey law requires all accident victims to seek medical compensation from their insurance provider first. If you have a standard or basic insurance policy in New Jersey, then you have personal injury protection coverage of anywhere between $15,000 and $250,000.

Since New Jersey has a “no-fault” insurance system, all accident victims must have as much of their medical expenses paid by their insurance provider as they can. If the severity of the injuries results in more medical expenses than what your insurance provider will cover, then you can sue the at-fault driver of the T-bone accident for compensatory damages.

Contact a Jersey City T-Bone Accident Attorney Today

You do not have to wait until you’re ready to file a lawsuit before you contact a Jersey City T-bone accident attorney. When you call our legal team at 201-798-8000, we will set you up with an attorney that specializes in T-bone accident cases. They will walk you through all the legal steps that you need to take before, during, and after your lawsuit.

For instance, if your insurance adjuster is not giving you the proper personal injury protection coverage that you entitled to, then we can negotiate a fair amount with them. Based on your existing insurance policy, we will then recommend the next course of action that you should take. If you have a standard policy, this gives you an unlimited right to sue the at-fault driver under New Jersey law. This entitles you to compensation for any injuries that you endured from the T-bone accident, no matter how big or small. If you have a basic policy, this gives you a limited right to sue only if you’re injuries are permanent.

In addition, you can seek punitive damages from the at-fault driver if they were negligent and aggressive in their driving. All you need to do is prove that they broke the traffic laws and then you can receive very generous punitive damages. In New Jersey, accident victims may receive punitive damages that are up to 5 times more than the compensatory damages. At a minimum, the punitive damages will be $350,000 if you win.

Our Jersey City T-bone accident attorney will represent you in court and fight to make sure you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your personal injuries that the law will allow. Contact us today and let us start fighting for your rights so that justice can be served.

Alright! These guys are amazing. I was devastated when I got a three tickets in New Jersey with 12 points in total and fines adding up over $1K. The officer was truly rude, unfair and just took out his bad day on me. At this point I had no idea what to do but I must find some legal help to fight this in court. After getting the tickets, I called a bunch of different law groups trying to see who can help me with this. I was able to talk to many of them and mostly all of them seemed like they wanted to see how much they can get out of me before even hearing out what my concerns where. Then I got around to calling Bhatt Law Group and I was welcome by this lady (whose name I don't know) and she was amazing. She listened and helped me be calm and gave me assurance I am in good hands. She offer pricing and it seemed very reasonable too. I made my payment and then I didn't have anything to worry about till the day of the virtual court. They figured out all my court dates and managed everything on the back end. They would give me updates on what the process is up to. Funny story, on the day of my virtual court session I overslept thinking my court time was at 11 am instead of 9 am and I had my attorney Devin Baer even giving me a call to get me out of bed to attend the zoom. I don't know how many attorneys would do that for their client. Devin was very helpful, professional and understanding. He gave me a call prior to my court session and gave important pointers and even through out the court session he made me feel confident and assure that everything will be okay. So these guys were friendly, helpful and professional but where there any results? OH YEAH! I was able to lower my fines and points to barely nothing. These guys are life savers and will help you legally in any situation where you have been treated unfairly. Thank you Bhatt Law.
