Side Impact Collisions
An accident that takes place at an intersection can often be called a Side Impact Crash, T-Bone accident, or a Right Angle Collision. In these types of accidents the front end of the oncoming vehicle smashes into the door or side panel of another forming a ‘T’, hence the name T-Bone. These types of accidents can cause minimal, severe & possibly fatal injuries.

Causes of T-Bone Accidents
Side Impact collisions are commonly the result of careless, reckless or hurried driving practices. It is not uncommon for the responsible party to not be paying attention at the time of the accident. Some common causes are running a red light, not stopping at a stop sign, text messaging while operating a vehicle. Also, being intoxicated while driving and overall negligent or inattentive driving are frequent causes of Side Impact Accidents in Maryland.
Injuries Possibly Caused By Right Angle Collisions
In a T-Bone accident there can be several types of injuries that differ from other types of auto accidents. In a right angle accident a driver or passenger is likely to experience varying degrees of head, neck, shoulder & spinal cord injuries. T-Bone accidents can also cause injuries to the lower extremities, particularly the knee joints and its surrounding structures. This is due to the angle of the impact compared to a head on collision or rear end collision. Also, more severe injuries can occur at lower speeds in these types of accidents due to how a car is designed to crumple in the event of an accident. Also, air bag deployment technology differs slightly in a side impact crash opposed to head-on or rear end crashes. This can effect the severity of an injury as well.
