Intersections can be dangerous places, especially when it comes to car accidents. And one of the most common – and most serious – types of car accidents that can occur at intersections involve one car crashing into the side of another car.
These types of accidents are known as T-bone or broadside car accidents. And depending on the circumstances of your T-bone car accident, you could be dealing with very serious injuries or even the death of a loved one.
Fortunately, you don’t have to deal with your T-bone accident in Illinois on your own. An experienced car accident lawyer at Coplan & Crane can help you every step of the way. We know how the legal system works in Cook County and throughout Illinois.
Why T-Bone car accidents happen
T-Bone accidents happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes include:
- A distracted driver runs a red light and crashes into the side of another car
- A driver falls asleep at the wheel and causes an accident at an intersection
- A drunk driver runs a red light or a stop sign
- A speeding driver crashes into the side of another car
- Reckless driving results in a crash
The circumstances surrounding every T-bone accident are unique. That’s why it’s important for your attorney to develop a unique strategy that suits your specific circumstances.
Why you need a lawyer on your side
The biggest obstacle people often face after a T-bone accident involves the driver who caused the crash denying that he or she did anything wrong. They might even try to blame you for causing your crash, even if the other driver was clearly at fault.
This is important since insurance companies often try to use such information to reduce or deny accident claims. And if they do, you could end up having to pay for your accident out of your own pocket, even if you did nothing wrong.
