A “T-bone” car accident refers to a side impact or a broadside collision, in which the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle. Unlike other accidents where drivers and passengers can brace for impact, T-bone accidents give passengers and drivers little to no time to react. These crashes are often the deadliest, causing serious injuries or death. If you have been injured in a T-bone collision, call Ferguson & Ferguson. Call 256-534-3435 now.
