T-bone accidents (also known as side-impact collisions), happen when the side of one vehicle is hit by the front or rear of another vehicle. These accidents are particularly dangerous for passengers on the impacted side. Here’s how they typically happen:
- Car accident hit on passenger side front: Car accidents where the passenger side front of the vehicle is impacted can result in various injuries due to the proximity to the point of impact. These collisions often happen at intersections or in situations where the driver fails to yield.
- Car accident hit on passenger side rear: Rear-impact collisions on the passenger side can cause whiplash and neck injuries, as well as injuries to the upper body and spine. These Car accidents often occur in heavy traffic or stop-and-go situations.
