T-Bone Crash in Albuquerque Knocks Over a Street Light

An accident involving two vehicles happened in Albuquerque occurred on University near the I-40 ramp. One vehicle T-boned another, which forced it to roll over. One street lamp was knocked over and fell over other vehicles. PNM arrived at the scene to help with the clean-up. No person was injured in the T-bone crash in Albuquerque.

T-bone accidents happen when the front of one vehicle hits the side of another, creating the shape of a “T” at the point of collision. Such collisions can happen at intersections when one driver ignores a stop sign or red light and drives through the intersection while another vehicle crosses the intersection. The main reason for such an accident is bad judgment, failure to follow the lights or signs. Often, drivers under the influence have trouble seeing the lights or stop signs, or their reactions are too slow, so they continue driving.

If you were involved in such an accident, you have the right to seek a compensation claim. The damages of such accidents are often major and people in the car (who sit at the side where the impact occurs) end up with severe injuries. The outcome is usually a long recovery, medical treatments such as surgeries, long hospital stays, medications, lost wages while the victim recovers. 

Not being able to cover these expenses can be stressful. Victims who have survived such an accident find it challenging to deal with legal matters. This is why it’s best to hire a car accident attorney to legally assist you when you file the compensation claim. The insurance company won’t be eager to pay a high settlement, but your lawyer will not just accept the first offer and will negotiate with the insurers until the offer is sufficiently high to cover your damages and injuries.
