The nature of T-bone truck collisions is such that victims who get away with minor injuries are considered extremely lucky. Because the sides of cars generally have little impact absorption relative to the front and rear ends, this type of accident often results in catastrophic injuries and fatalities, especially when a massive vehicle like a truck is involved. If you have suffered considerable losses in a t-bone truck accident, it is in your best interest to contact a Louisville, KY T-bone accident lawyer today.

Common Causes of T-Bone Truck Accidents

Although there are a variety of circumstances which can contribute to a t-bone truck accident, most cases can be attributed to driver error, especially when it comes to intersection crashes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 96 percent of intersection accidents, many of which are t-bone collisions, are caused by driver negligence.

Truck drivers are expected to adhere to certain federal and state safety regulations in addition to the rules of the road in order to prevent devastating accidents. Unfortunately, not all truck drivers practice caution on the road, and their negligence sometimes leads to t-bone collisions, the common causes of which include:

  • Speeding
  • Inattentive or distracted driving
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Illegal maneuvers, such as running a light or a stop sign
  • Failing to yield right of way
  • Turning left into the side of another vehicle
  • Inadequate maintenance

Proving Liability in a T-Bone Truck Accident

After a t-bone truck collision, it is important to consult with a truck accident attorney right away so s/he can get started on an investigation before the trucking company’s own agents meddle with potential evidence. An experienced attorney should be able to collect evidence that strongly supports your claim of liability against the wrongful truck driver and company. Such evidence may include:

  • Police and medical reports
  • Intersection camera footage
  • Witness and expert testimony
  • Hours of Service (HOS) logbooks
  • Data from truck’s onboard systems, such as the brake and engine control module
  • Maintenance and inspection history
