T-Bone Car Accident

It is no secret that car accidents in Boston are extremely common. A common example of these accidents are T-bone car accidents. These can arise in a variety of ways. As a Boston T-bone car accident lawyer, our law office can help if you’ve been injured in one of these accidents.

What Are T-Bone Car Accidents?

These are some of the most serious car accident cases . They are accidents that happen when the front of a car negligently strikes the side of another motor vehicle. These accidents typically occur when a vehicle fails to yield , or fails to stop at a red light, or stop sign. Oftentimes they are due to negligence such as speeding, or distraction. These crashes can cause very serious personal injuries to the occupants of the vehicles. It is not uncommon to see broken bones result from these violent types of car accidents. Also, very serious property damage can result to the involved vehicles.

These crashes typically occur at intersections. Oftentimes the crash was the fault of one of the operators to yield, or stop at a stop sign or red light. The parties involved in this situation typically try to point the finger at each other for having responsibility for causing the crash. This ends up at the insurance claims stage with cases being denied outright, or with liability being reduced to 50%. It is quite helpful to have an experienced attorney on your side when dealing with the aftermath of one of these accidents.

What Compensation Can Be Obtained From a T-Bone Accident?

If you have been injured in a t-bone accident due to negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation. This compensation includes payment for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The claim is presented to the insurance company for the at-fault driver. If the claim settles, that insurance company will pay the settlement. If the claim does not settle, then a lawsuit needs to be filed . If the claim does not settle during litigation, then the case will need to be tried to verdict in front of a judge and jury.

Any compensation that is received for these crashes is not considered to be taxable income under either state or federal law. The reason is because any settlement or verdict is intended to make the victim whole, and is not considered to be a taxable event. Therefore, the money is not taxed, except under very limited circumstances.
