Omaha T-Bone Accident Attorneys
No one should ever have to suffer a serious car wreck. A single collision can leave a driver or passenger disabled, in a great deal of pain, and buried in medical bills. This is especially true for T-bone collisions, which are always the result of someone’s recklessness. Following such a collision, victims should not have to pay for their injuries on their own; that is the responsibility of the person who injured them.
If you were injured in an Omaha T-bone collision that was not your fault, reach out to the team at Bottlinger Law L.L.C. We know just how devastating these collisions can be and are dedicated to getting victims full compensation for their trauma. Let us handle the legwork of investigating and fighting to get the money you need to heal. Call us today at (402) 505-8234 to get a free case evaluation.
T-bones occur at intersections, parking lot exits, and driveways when drivers ignore the right of way. If a driver does not look both ways before exiting a parking lot, or speeds through an intersection, they can cause a catastrophic collision. This is especially true for larger vehicles like SUVs, vans, and trucks.
To get the money you need to heal, you need to show that the other driver acted negligently. This can include actions such as:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Distracted driving, such as using a cellphone, eating, grooming, or arguing with passengers
- Reckless driving, such as speeding
- Making dangerous left-hand turns
- Running red lights and stop signs
- Ignoring your right of way
- Carelessly backing out of a driveway
Any vehicle collision can injure a driver or passenger, but T-bone accidents come with added risks. Car manufacturers design most vehicles with crumple zones located at the front and back. During a head-on or rear-end collision, the hood or trunk of the car can absorb most the damage before the force of the collision reaches the driver or passengers.
With a T-bone collision, the only protection for vehicle occupants are the doors, which are not built to absorb the full force of a crash. While some vehicles have side airbags, this is not a common feature, and frontal airbags are only designed to deploy during head-on collisions. As a result, both drivers and passengers can suffer severe injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Crush injuries, which may lead to a medical amputation
- Paralysis due to nerve damage or injuries to the spinal cord
- Multiple broken bones
- Eye damage and vision loss due to facial fractures
- Serious soft-tissue damage
- Extensive scarring and disfigurements
- Fatal trauma
After such a painful wreck, you deserve to receive full compensation from the person who harmed you. T-bone collisions occur due to a flagrant disregard for Omaha’s traffic laws, such as running red lights or ignoring yield signs. If a driver acted negligently and injured you, you may be eligible for compensation in a personal injury claim.
A T-bone collision can easily eat away at your savings and leave you with expensive medical bills. In order to get your bills paid and your life back on track, you will need to file an auto accident claim with the other driver’s insurance company. While this process should be simple, insurance companies have made it complicated for accident victims.
If you try to file a claim on your own, the other driver’s insurance company will try to minimize the amount of money it pays you, argue with you over how serious your injuries are, and even try to blame you for the collision. At the end of the day, insurers do not want to pay and will try to make you accept a low offer.
On the other hand, with a skilled attorney at your side, you may be able to receive proper compensation. Our team at Bottlinger Law L.L.C. can dig into the details of your collision, collect evidence of negligence, calculate the full cost of the wreck, and advocate for every cent you deserve in a claim. We have experience dealing with dismissive insurance companies and know exactly how they think. Let us go to work getting you the money you need to heal.
It is important to remember that your claim will not only include your medical bills. Nebraska’s laws allow victims to pursue a variety of damages after a collision, including:
- All medical bills, including past and future expenses like emergency room bills, surgery, rehabilitation, medication, and therapy
- Lost wages if you had to take time off work
- Lost earning potential if you had to change careers or jobs
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment
After a T-bone collision, you deserve to be treated respectfully by an insurance company. You should not have to go through hours of negotiations and paperwork to get your bills paid when someone has wronged you. Unfortunately, this is the harsh nature of an auto accident claim, but you do not have to go through it alone.
Instead, let an Omaha personal injury lawyer at Bottlinger Law L.L.C. handle the heavy lifting while you focus on healing.
