Despite engaging in safe driving habits, you may find yourself the victim of a T-bone accident due to someone else’s negligence. Injuries, such as broken bones, brain injuries, and spinal cord damage may affect your day-to-day life, and medical expenses can pile up as you may not have the means to return to work.

A T-bone accident is an intersection collision where a driver collides with the side of another vehicle. These accidents are especially dangerous to nearby vehicles or pedestrians, depending on the severity of the impact. The lack of structural support on the vehicle’s side means that victims are vulnerable to serious injuries.
New York has a no-fault system in place for car accident injury compensation. Under this system, individuals injured in a car accident first seek compensation for their medical expenses by filing a no-fault claim with their own insurance provider, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. The minimum no-fault coverage required in New York State is $50,000 per person, but it may be greater if additional coverage was purchased.
However, the no-fault system does not allow accident victims to recover compensation for the full value of their lost wages or non-economic losses such as pain and suffering, unless their injuries meet a serious injury threshold as set forth by state law. Victims in New York can pursue legal action against the other driver if they suffered any of the following “serious injuries,” as defined under Section 5102 of the Insurance Law of the State of New York:
