T-Bone Accidents

T-bone accidents typically occur in intersections after a car has run either a red light or stop sign. Unfortunately, establishing liability can be difficult, since both drivers tend to claim that the other was at fault. To protect your right to compensation, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible.

At Dodson & Hooks, APLC, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, our lawyers have years of experience representing accident victims. We use investigators who will interview witnesses and gather the evidence we need to provide a convincing case in court. Call 225-756-0222 or toll free at 855-515-1257 for a free initial consultation.

Comparative Fault and T-Bone Accidents in Louisiana

Louisiana is a comparative fault state. This means that your recovery in a personal injury case is reduced by a percentage of fault that is assigned. It also means that even if you are partially at fault for the accident, you can still recover compensation for the percentage of fault that is assigned to the other driver.
T-bone accidents are typically caused by one driver’s failure to yield at an intersection. However, the driver who has the right of way may incur a percentage of liability for:
  • Not looking both ways before entering an intersection
  • Speeding
  • Failing to avoid an accident
For these reasons, you should never discuss fault with the other driver or a representative of his or her insurance company. Even an innocent statement can be used to shift blame from the other driver to you.
