A t-bone crash is one of the deadliest out there because it directly impacts the vehicle’s occupants. When another car smashes into the side of yours, people on that side will end up taking large amounts of dangerous physical force. Crashes on the side of the vehicle make up roughly a quarter of all passenger vehicle occupant deaths in the U.S., according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

What Kind of Damages Can I Get Compensated for in My Settlement?
You can get compensated for virtually any type of damage so long as they directly stem from your t-bone crash.
One of the most common damages we help our clients recover compensation for is their medical expenses for treatment, physical therapy, surgery, etc. A t-bone crash can leave you with serious injuries such as broken bones, traumatic brain injury, lacerations, heavy internal damage, and much more.
These injuries aren’t cheap to treat. Just one broken bone can cost you thousands of dollars without insurance. Even if you have insurance, it can still cost a small fortune for the average Mableton resident. You don’t need to pay for any of your medical expenses out of your pocket because our lawyers will help you recover compensation for them through your settlement.
Assisted Living and Substitute Services
After a t-bone crash, you may find yourself with severe injuries that require a long time to heal. During this time, you may be immobilized, in a cast, or unable to function normally like you used to. Regardless of whether your disabilities are permanent or not, you will most likely require assisted living or substitute services to help you.
Assisted living services refer to the services people receive when they’re no longer able to care for themselves. Substitute services refer to services done for those who can’t run errands or take care of essential matters anymore due to injury. These services aren’t cheap, and if you need them, we can help you get the compensation required to pay or reimburse you for them.
Mental Anguish and Emotional Trauma
People often underestimate just how damaging mental anguish and emotional trauma can be. Something as traumatic as a t-bone crash can often leave victims with:
- Recurring nightmares
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Damages to your mental health are just as important and serious as damages to your physical well-being. We won’t let the defense or the insurance companies downplay or undermine your mental anguish. Our lawyers will include them in your settlement so you can get compensated adequately for them.

How Much Are Settlements for T-Bone Crashes?
There is no set average settlement amount for t-bone crashes. This is largely because of the chaotic and unpredictable nature of traffic accidents. One t-bone crash may not be as severe as the next.
Generally speaking, you can probably expect to receive several thousand dollars of compensation depending on the severity of your damages and your accident. Some cases can result in a lot more and others a lot less. For more details and answers on your specific case, you will need to speak with one of our t-bone crash lawyers about the potential value of your settlement.
Do I Really Need a Lawyer to Help Me?
We can’t stop you if you don’t want a lawyer to help you, but we strongly advise against filing and negotiating for your claim alone. If you don’t have strong legal knowledge or any prior legal experience, you will have a very difficult time trying to win against the insurance companies.
We recommend that you speak to one of our t-bone crash attorneys as soon as possible. The faster you come in for your free consultation, the quicker we can get started building a solid case for your claim. With our help, you can beat the insurance companies and get the settlement you need for your damages.
