T-Bone/Broadside Accident Attorney
Our legal team puts your interests first
Intersections can be dangerous places in the Washington, D.C. area. That's because there are so many drivers racing through stop signs or yellow/red lights in a rush to get somewhere. And when they do, they often cause serious car accidents involving other vehicles legally driving through the same intersection which have the right of way.
In particular, drivers who race through an intersection often crash into the side of another vehicle or are impacted by the victim whom they cut or turn in front of him/her without warning. These accidents are known as T-bone or broadside car accidents since the two vehicles form a "T" shape when they crash into other.
Knowing what to do after a T-bone accident in the D.C. area can be confusing. Even knowing what your rights are as an accident victim might not be clear. That's why it's important to talk to an experienced car accident lawyer right away. That's why attorney Stuart L. Plotnick wants to meet with you.

Why T-Bone car accidents happen
Why would someone drive through an intersection into the side of another vehicle? There are many reasons, including:
- Not paying attention (distracted driving)
- Texting while driving (which is against the law in MD, VA and D.C.)
- Speeding through a yellow or red light, or a stop sign
- Failing to yield to oncoming traffic
- Falling asleep at the wheel and driving through the intersection
- Reckless driving
- Taking a left turn in front of cars coming in the other direction
- Pulling out onto the main road from a parking area or side-street
There are many other reasons why T-bone car accidents happen. And each one requires its own unique approach. That's why it's critical that you talk to a lawyer as soon as possible about all your legal options.
