Fault And Intersection Accidents
T-bone accidents typically occur in intersections when one of the parties runs a red light, stop sign or yield sign. These accidents may also occur in intersections without traffic control devices when one driver fails to yield to the vehicle approaching from the right.
Evidence such as witness statements, skid marks and vehicle damage can provide crucial evidence if fault is contested. It is important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible to collect and preserve evidence of liability.
In Tennessee, you can recover compensation as long as your negligence was less than that of the other driver. However, your compensation can be reduced by any percent of negligence that is attributed to you. For this reason, if the insurance company of the other driver contacts you, you should not answer questions or make a recorded statement without legal advice. Even innocent statements can be twisted around to attribute negligence to you.
With our team of Nashville T-bone collision lawyers and legal professionals on your side, you can be assured that we will work hard to achieve the full financial compensation to which you are entitled for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, disability and other damages.
