Dallas T-Bone Accidents Lawyer
Experienced attorneys who know how to get results
Intersections can see a lot of traffic, with thousands of vehicles passing through in different directions on any given day. It only takes one negligent driver to cause a crash that leaves people seriously hurt. The experienced car accident attorneys at Tracey Fox & Walters fight for the rights of the injured.
Many car accidents that happen at intersections are T-bone accidents. In these crashes, the front of one car crashes into the side of another, roughly forming the shape of the letter “T.” They are sometimes called side-impact collisions or broadside accidents.
Common injuries in T-bone accidents include whiplash, concussion, broken bones and injuries to the head, neck or back. The lives of victims can change in an instant. Many people aren’t sure what to next. Dealing with insurance companies can be confusing and frustrating and recovering financial compensation can be complicated.

A T-bone collision can happen at any intersection. Some of the most dangerous intersections in Dallas for accidents include:
- Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway (I-635) and Skillman Street
- Belt Line Road and Dallas Parkway
- Northwest Highway and Walton Walker Boulevard
- Buckner Boulevard and Military Parkway
- Greenville Avenue and Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway
- Commerce Street and Lamar Street
- Central Texas Expressway and East Lovers Lane
- Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway and Midway Road
What causes T-bone accidents? Usually, it’s negligent drivers. A driver ran a red light or sped through a stop sign. A driver was turning left and didn’t check for oncoming traffic. Some drivers were speeding or passing other cars recklessly. Others were texting or talking on the phone and took their eyes off the road.
If a negligent driver caused your crash, recovering compensation seems like it should be a straightforward process. The other driver was in the wrong and the insurance company compensates you for damages. But it’s not quite that simple.
Negligent drivers often deny they were at fault and refuse to accept responsibility for what happened. That puts you in the position of having to prove the other driver was negligent. Insurance companies aren’t your side. They are mostly interested in protecting profits by paying you as little as possible.
There are several tactics they use to pay you less. They may question the seriousness of your injuries or argue that they were pre-existing. Or they’ll make a lowball settlement offer and tell you it’s the best that they can do.
Insurance companies have lawyers looking out for their best interests. You need an experienced attorney who will fight to get the results you need.
How a lawyer can help
Our attorneys know what you’re up against with insurance companies. We know how to overcome the challenges and obstacles they put in your way. We start by investigating your accident to get the facts about what really happened.
Our legal team gathers evidence, including any video from traffic cameras at the intersection. We carefully review accident reports and medical records. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists. We build strong cases that insurance companies have to take seriously.
We also determine the total damages you suffered in your accident. These may include all current and future medical expenses for treating your injuries, lost wages if you couldn’t work and other damages such as pain and suffering.

When insurance companies see that we have prepared a strong case and are ready to fight for you, they often agree to negotiate a settlement. But we are not interested in making a quick deal that helps them save money. If a settlement offer doesn’t meet your needs, we are ready to bring your case to a jury.
It’s important to get legal advice as you can after you’ve been injured in a T-bone accident. Under the law, you generally have two years from the date of the crash to take legal action. But over time, evidence can get lost and witnesses can forget important details. The sooner we can get started, the better.
How much does a lawyer cost? Our firm works on a contingency fee basis. That means you pay us nothing unless we get results. If you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.
