T-bone Trucking Accidents in New Mexico
Issues with T-bone Trucking Accidents in New Mexico Resulting in Personal Injuries
One of the most damaging types of motor vehicle accidents is the t-bone accident. This is because one vehicle’s front engine block is pounding into the side of another vehicle’s driver or passenger side that has just a thin wall. This works almost like a battering ram colliding with a thin wall. As a result, victims hit on the side are usually severely injured or tragically killed in a crash. This cannot be more true in t-bone trucking accidents in New Mexico where large 18 wheelers could cause significant and catastrophic personal injuries in a collision resulting in absolute devastation in a crash.

Liability Issues in T-bone Trucking Accidents in New Mexico
T-bone trucking accidents are tricky types of motor vehicle accidents. This is because they are caused at intersections and intersection collisions are often hotly contested and resolve around questions of fact or credibility. Often times one party will blame the other party for the accident, which becomes a he-said, she-said argument. Unless there are credible witnesses or surveillance videos, it can be difficult for anyone to determine liability with hearing the testimony of witnesses. This can be a huge hurdle in a plaintiff’s case.
Damages in T-Bone Crashes
Since t-bone collisions are so significant and devastating, damages are usually catastrophic, disabling, or permanent. This could mean that victims suffer massive injuries that require immediate medical treatment including emergency surgery.
Some of the most common and significant injuries that a victim hit by a t-bone collision could include the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries including head injuries, brain injuries, and other types of injuries to a person’s cognition
- Spinal cord injuries including paralysis such as paraplegia or quadriplegia
- Blindness or loss of sight
- Burn injuries including from fires, explosions, or chemicals
