When you think about it, you might wonder why there are so many accidents near junctions. Whether it’s vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, or any other form of accident, the fact that a junction is, by definition, a spot where one or more roads meet implies that there will inevitably be more accidents there.
Intersections come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with some being more dangerous than others. A yield sign, for example, is more likely to have accidents than a four-way stop, and a junction with five distinct routes coming together is much more likely to have accidents. If you were hurt in an accident at an intersection, regardless of the kind, call The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 for a free legal consultation.
Types of intersection collisions
At a crossroads, everything from a little fender bender to a deadly vehicle collision might happen. Rear-end, t-bone, and sideswipe accidents are some of the most prevalent forms of collisions. They can occur for a variety of causes, including one or more cars failing to yield while turning, failing to observe legislation, or failing to comprehend the laws.
Cars travelling too quickly to safely stop when the light turns red or running the signal totally can cause intersection accidents. The motorist might be distracted by their phone or another person in the vehicle, or they could be weary while driving. Drivers may be acting recklessly in particular situations, such as while racing other cars or making illegal U-turns. In short, there is a seemingly limitless number of possible reasons of intersection accidents.
Identifying who is at fault in intersection collisions
In certain circumstances, determining who was at blame is simple. At some crossroads, cameras can indicate who had the right of way and who breached the law. There may be eyewitnesses who can attest to what occurred. It might be a he-said/she-said situation if neither of these are present. Your personal injury lawyer can next employ an accident reconstruction specialist to figure out what happened based on skid marks, vehicle positions, and other facts.
