Many car accidents happen at intersections, and some of the most dangerous involve the front of one vehicle crashing into the side of another. These types of crashes are known as T-Bone or broadside accidents, and they can leave people with serious injuries. The car accident attorneys at Mike Slocumb Law Firm help people who have been hurt in these types of accidents recover financial compensation.
There are different causes for T-Bone accidents, and they almost always involve driver negligence. For example, a distracted driver may have gone straight through a red light or stop sign. A speeding driver may have taken a turn too fast. A driver may have been operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. Or a fatigued driver didn’t notice a stop sign or was unable to react in time to prevent a crash.
If you were injured in a T-Bone accident involving a negligent driver, you shouldn’t have to pay for the damages you suffered. But recovering compensation can be difficult. Negligent drivers typically deny doing anything wrong. And insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible – or nothing at all, if they had their way.
We know the impact a T-Bone accident can have on crash victims and their families. You may be dealing with medical expenses that seem like they’re getting out of control. If you can’t work because of your injury, there is less income. But the usual bills don’t stop coming in. Many families find it harder to make ends meet after a car accident.
That’s why we fight to hold negligent drivers accountable and help you recover the compensation you deserve. We know the games insurance companies play. They may question the extent of your injuries. They may say the accident was your fault. If they do make an offer, it is often a lowball amount that doesn’t come close to covering the costs of the damages you have suffered.
Our law firm doesn’t put up with these tactics. We investigate your accident to learn what really happened. Our legal team carefully reviews accident reports, medical records and other relevant documentation. We identify witnesses and we interview them ourselves. And if needed, we will bring in accident reconstruction experts or other specialists.
Our attorneys know how to build a strong case that proves another driver caused the accident that left you injured. They also determine the total amounts of your damages. This includes current and future medical expenses related to your injury, any lost wages if you were unable to work, and other damages such as pain and suffering.
We take an aggressive approach with the insurance company and demand the compensation you deserve. When they see that we have built a strong case and are prepared to fight them in court, they often realize it is in their best interests to settle. But we’re not interested in a quick settlement that helps them save money. Any settlement offer has to be one that meets your needs.
