T-Bone Collisions in Charleston, IL
Injured in a Side Impact Crash? Call Our Attorneys!
A side impact collision occurs when the side of one automobile is impacted by the front bumper or rear bumper of another vehicle. These types of car accidents are also known as broadside collisions, right-angle collisions, or T-bone accidents.
Typically, automobile damages and occupant injuries tend to be more severe in T-bone collisions, but the severity will depend on the part of the vehicle that is struck, safety features, and the speed and weight of each vehicle.

About Broadside Collisions
According to the United States Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), broadside collisions are responsible for more than 9,000 fatalities every year throughout the United States. These accidents may occur virtually anywhere: in intersections, parking lots, and when vehicles turn across traffic.
Of course, these accidents are typically caused by the negligent actions of another driver.
Common causes of broadside collisions include:
- Adverse weather conditions
- Aggressive driving
- Distracting driving
- Drunk driving
- Excessive speeding
- Failure to obey traffic signs or signals
- Fatigued driving
- Careless or reckless driving
- Texting and driving
- Turning across traffic
In some instances, side-impact collisions become hit and run accidents, if one of the parties leaves the scene without exchanging contact and insurance information with the other driver. These accidents are also the cause of many different types of injuries.
