Deerfield Beach Intersection Accidents
There are many types of mistakes that lead to intersection car accidents in Deerfield Beach and other communities.

Motorists are expected to respect the safety of everyone around them and to drive carefully.

You can always contact Flaxman Law Group to arrange for a free, no obligation case review to discuss your legal options. You may qualify for compensation that can help you pay for lost wages, medical bills, and many other expenses related to your injuries.Injuries Common in Intersection Accidents
Many intersection traffic accidents in Deerfield Beach and South Florida are T-bone accidents, rear end shunt collisions, chain reaction accidents, or other serious crashes. As a result, these types of collisions tend to result in serious injuries, such as:
- Brain injury
- Soft tissue injury
- Spinal cord injury
Even if you have car insurance, getting compensation for these injuries can be a challenge. In some cases, insurance companies will undervalue a claim or will treat an injury such as whiplash as a minor problem, even though to patients with this condition it can be extremely painful. Whiplash and other injuries can make it difficult return to work and everyday activities and in many cases these injuries are difficult to diagnose, leading to a lot of frustration and repeat doctors’ visits. Do not let anyone tell you that your injuries do not count; speak to a personal injury attorney to find out whether you have a claim or other legal options.Statistics Show that Intersection Accidents Can Happen to Anyone
According to the Driving Institute of America, more than 40% of traffic accident deaths involved accidents where someone drove through traffic light, stop sign, or failed to yield right-of-way. This means that a significant portion of all car accidents across the country are in fact intersection accidents.

The good news is that in some of these cases it is possible to seek compensation so that the survivor or survivors at least have the financial compensation to pay for medical costs, property damage, and other expenses.
