Tampa T-Bone Accident Lawyer

You never expect to be seriously injured in a car crash when you are driving on the road and abiding by all traffic laws. Perhaps you waited for a traffic light to turn green, or came to a complete stop at a traffic sign. However, when you started to proceed, another driver showed up out of nowhere and slammed into the side of your vehicle.

This is when most T-bone, or side-impact, collisions occur. When they do, drivers and passengers in the car that was struck suffer the most serious injuries. Personal injury protection (PIP) is often not enough to fully cover the cost of these injuries. A Tampa T-bone accident lawyer can help you claim the full damages you deserve.

Our Tampa T-Bone Accident Attorney Explains Why These Crashes are So Severe

A T-bone accident is one of the worst types of crashes a person could be involved in. Many people think they are not as serious as head-on collisions, but this is not true. The front of a vehicle is designed to absorb impact and force. Occupants inside a vehicle involved in a head-on collision also have many protections such as airbags. These safety features are not available on the side of vehicles. With little more than a steel frame, and a fairly lightweight one at that, the person sitting at the site of impact will suffer from the full impact.

Due to this, T-bone accidents result in some of the most severe injuries on the road. The most common of these include:

  • Lower back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Hip injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • Chest injuries
  • Spinal injuries, including paralysis

The above injuries usually require long-term medical treatment, and may prevent you from working for several months, or even years. A Tampa T-bone accident attorney can help you obtain the compensation that can adequately address these losses.

Our Tampa T-Bone Accident Attorney Can Deal with the Insurance Companies

One of the most difficult parts of filing a car accident claim is dealing with the insurance companies involved. Even when seeking PIP benefits from your own insurer, you are not guaranteed that you will be treated fairly. Insurance companies may try to downplay your injuries in an attempt to deny you the full settlement you deserve. They may even try to claim that you were partly at fault, to reduce the amount of compensation you receive. A Tampa T-bone accident attorney will not let them get away with these tactics so you recover the full damages you deserve.

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
