T-BONE COLLISION AT INTERSECTION IN EL PASO, TEXAS
Our client was driving northbound with a passenger in the 1200 block of Yarbrough in El Paso, Texas. As they approached the intersection with Candlewood, another vehicle was driving in the opposite direction, headed southbound on Yarbrough.
The other vehicle attempted to turn left, across our client’s lane onto Candlewood. This turn caused our client to crash into the passenger side of the other vehicle. The wreck caused injury to our client and his passenger as well as catastrophic damage to his car.
The officer who attended the scene of the wreck determined that the other vehicle failed to yield right-of-way by turning in front of our client, leading to the crash. Upon investigation by our attorney team, it was also determined that the negligence of the other driver who caused the crash included:
- maintaining an unsafe distance from other vehicles;
- keeping an improper lookout;
- driving distracted
- taking improper evasive actions to avoid the collision; and
- choosing to violate safety rules.
This case settled in pre-litigation, and our client received compensation for:
- medical expenses;
- pain and suffering; and
- mental anguish.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Below are some frequently asked questions related to T-bone accidents
Q: What does T-Bones in a car accident mean?
A: A T-Bone accident, also known as a side-impact collision, involves a car that is hit on its side by the front end of another vehicle. The name T-Bone stems from the ‘T’ position that the two cars involved are said to form.
Q: Who is at fault in a T-Bone Car Accident?
A: Depending on the specifics of the case, either driver can be at fault for the accident. For example, if you are traveling through an intersection with a green light and another driver fails to yield, turning across your lane, they may be considered at fault. If you were to run through a stop sign and another vehicle is turning at the same time, then you may be at fault.
To understand your case better, speak with a car accident lawyer for more information.
Q: What to do after a T-Bone Accident?
A: If you were involved in a T-Bone accident, that was not your fault, the following steps can help you with your case:
- Seek medical attention – even if you think you are uninjured, the adrenaline running through your system after the crash may be masking your symptoms. You will also need medical reports to prove your injuries if you pursue compensation.
- Document the crash – take note of as much detail as possible. For example, photos of the accident scene, pictures of your injuries, details of the other driver and note the name of any police officers that attended the scene.
- Speak with an attorney – once the dust has settled, speak with an attorney to better understand your legal position if you intend on seeking compensation.
