Coral Gables Intersection Accidents
On Coral Gables and Florida city streets, intersection accidents are some of the worst crashes. This is because intersection accidents often involve speed as well as multiple vehicles. These areas of the road are very dangerous because there are multiple types of vehicles headed in multiple directions, increasing the likelihood of a serious pedestrian or car accident.
Rear end shunt accidents, head-on collisions, and T-bone accidents are all common crashes at intersections. If you have been injured in an accident that has occurred at an intersection, it is important to get legal advice, since these types of collisions are often preventable.

All types of intersection traffic collisions are dangerous and potentially deadly, but they are especially fatal for bicyclists and pedestrians who are struck by cars or trucks at intersections. Unfortunately, intersections represent a serious danger for pedestrians and bicyclists, since both of these types of road users need to enter intersections that are shared with much larger vehicles.
Motorists are expected to look out for bicyclists and pedestrians when they turn or when they approach an intersection. Pedestrians have the right-of-way when they are obeying traffic signals and are in the crosswalk. Unfortunately, many drivers who are in a rush or driving distracted ignore right-of-way rules and sometimes crash into cyclists, other cars, or pedestrians because they are not looking where they're going.Right of Way Regulations get Ignored at Some Intersections
Bicyclists are supposed to be treated as vehicles on the road and at intersections, but sometimes motorists in passenger vehicles will strike bicyclists at an intersection because they are not looking for bicyclists or because they try to edge a bicyclist out of their lane. Motorists are expected to change lanes, stop, and turn correctly at intersections. When they do not, pedestrians and bicyclists are most likely to receive life-threatening and serious injuries. In this situation, it is common for bicylists and pedestrians to sustain:
- Head injuries and brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
