Intersection Crashes More Than Just Fender Benders
While high-speed crashes on the highway are often deemed the most dangerous accident scenarios, crashes on city streets should not be underestimated. Intersection crashes, in particular, can be debilitating or fatal, both for drivers and pedestrians.
The common causes of intersection crashes are predictable and avoidable. They include:
- Running red lights or trying to speed through on yellow lights
- Distracted driving leading into a traffic stop
- Illegal left-hand and right-hand turns
- Failure to yield to pedestrians
- Failure to yield right of way to other vehicles
- Aggressive driving
- Inadequate vehicle maintenance leading to braking issues
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an intersection crash caused by another driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
Proving Your Claim
Evidence is important in any legal matter, but finding and preserving evidence is especially important after an intersection crash. Otherwise, it is simply your word against the word of another driver.
An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you:
Obtain recorded footage from intersection cameras or nearby security cameras
Find and coordinate with witnesses to the crash who may be willing to give testimony
Obtain important data from the city, including timing of traffic lights
Reconstruct the accident in detail using all available information
