It can be difficult to prove who is at fault in side-impact collisions because, absent witnesses, they are often one parties word against other. That’s why it’s so important to retain a T-bone accident attorney as soon as possible. A T-bone collision lawyer can thoroughly examine the facts of the accident and obtain important evidence, like witness statements, intersection camera footage, and photos of debris and skid marks to help prove who is liable for the accident. Our personal injury lawyers also work with accident reconstruction experts and engineers, when necessary, to prove who had the right-of-way.
