Wrongful Death in T-Bone Accidents

What is a T-Bone Accident?

T-bone accidents are collisions where a car strikes another vehicle from the side, forming a “T”.  This kind of collision typically occurs as a result of negligent driving when one vehicle does not yield the correct way in violation with California traffic laws. It is a common collision that occurs when making left turns, involving a wider turn across busy intersections that require more attention and focus on the road. T-bone accidents cause life-threatening injuries and potential death.

What is “Wrongful Death?”
