Cincinnati Box Truck T-Bone Collision Accident Lawyers
Have you been seriously injured in a T-bone collision with a box truck? Was the collision caused by a negligent truck driver? The Cincinnati box truck accident lawyers of Lawrence & Associates Accident and Injury Lawyers, LLC may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Passenger vehicle drivers share the road with box trucks every day. Due to the large size of box trucks, when they are involved in accidents, they can inflict severe and sometimes fatal injuries on other drivers and passengers. These injuries often require expensive medical care, extensive medical treatment, and long-term recovery. The costs associated with medical care and treatment for your injuries can be exorbitant, and your financial burden may be compounded by your need to take time off from work to recover from your injuries.
You shouldn’t be facing financial stress when your injuries were caused by the actions of the truck driver. At Lawrence & Associates Accident and Injury Lawyers, LLC, we have over 15 years of experience advocating for T-bone collision victims during their pursuit for compensation. We will work hard to help you get justice for what you’ve had to endure as a result of the accident.
What Is a T-Bone Collision and How Does it Happen?
A T-bone collision between a box truck and a passenger vehicle occurs when a box truck collides with the side of a passenger vehicle.
The risk of T-bone collision is increased when a truck driver doesn’t drive with the high level of care and caution that they are supposed to while operating their commercial vehicle. Often, when this type of collision occurs, it’s due to a truck driver being inattentive or driving recklessly. If a trucker drives his vehicle through a stop sign without stopping first or runs a red light, they can cause a T-bone collision.
Common T-Bone Collision Injuries
T-bone collisions can cause serious, devastating injuries. Some T-bone collision injuries may even be fatal. The impact to the side of vehicles in a collision of this type often occurs with great force due to the massive box trucks’ high rate of speed. Many passenger vehicle drivers and passengers involved in T-bone collisions are not well-protected from the force of the impact, especially if their vehicles aren’t equipped with side airbags or the airbags don’t deploy properly.
Some of the serious injuries that passenger vehicle drivers and passengers may sustain in a T-bone collision are:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Loss of limb
- Organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Hearing and vision loss or impairment
Along with severe physical injuries, T-bone collision victims may suffer from debilitating mental health disorders. Anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and fears of cars, trucks, and driving are commonly experienced by accident victims in the aftermath of a T-bone collision.

How Can I Be Compensated for My Injuries?
When you pursue compensation for your injuries, you and your attorney will file a claim with the truck driver’s insurance company or with the trucking company’s insurance company, depending upon the circumstances. Your attorney will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to get them to offer you full compensation for your injuries. Sometimes, these negotiations are successful. Other times, they aren’t. In the latter event, your attorney will file a lawsuit against the at-fault party to get you the compensation you deserve.
If we need to file a lawsuit on your behalf, we have to do so within a certain time frame. This is known as the statute of limitations. In Ohio, you have to file your lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident.
You may be eligible for damages for the following losses you incurred as a result of your injuries:
- Medical costs associated with your injuries
- Loss of income or wages
- Loss of future earning ability
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Decline in quality of life
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium (personal relationships)
- Property damage
You may also be awarded exemplary damages if we have to litigate your claim in court. The purpose of exemplary damages is to punish the person responsible for harming you. This type of compensation is only awarded in rare circumstances. Check with your lawyer to see if an award of exemplary damages is possible in your case.
