Hurt in a Nashville T-Bone Accident?
We Protect the Victims of Side Impact Crashes
Most frequently occurring at busy intersections, T-bone crashes (also known
as broadside or side impact collisions) occur when the front of one car
smashes into the side of another car at a 90-degree angle. This type of
accident can cause serious injuries or wrongful death of those involved,
especially when occurring at higher speeds. Our Nashville personal injury
lawyers can help. Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge boasts more than 100
combined years of experience and a track record of successful verdicts

Crumple Zones & Side-Impact Protection
Part of what makes these accidents so dangerous is that they put the passenger
and driver of the car into direct danger. With head-on and rear-end collisions,
there are crumple zones to absorb some of the energy of the crash; however,
there is practically no crumple zone on the side of a vehicle. Instead,
the Side Impact Protection System that was introduced in the 1990s is
often all that stands between the crash and the individual.
Some of the different safety mechanisms that can protect passengers in
a T-bone accident include:
- Side impact bars that make the doors more rigid and distribute the energy
- Large door overlaps that help to strengthen against deformation
- Stable posts to help protect against deformation in the passenger compartment
- Stable cross-bracings that exist in the floor
- Side and head airbags to serve as a restraint system
