Fort Lauderdale Intersection Accidents

Intersection accidents in Fort Lauderdale and across Florida occur every year and often result in serious injury or even fatalities. Unfortunately, intersection accidents often involve pedestrian or bicycle accidents, and bicyclists and pedestrians simply have little or no chance against a much larger passenger car or truck. Intersection accidents often also involve speed – such as when a vehicle runs a red light. In these cases, the injuries are often substantial, as are the costs to the survivor.

Catastrophic Injury is Common After a Serious Intersection Car or Truck Accident in Fort Lauderdale

Intersection accidents can lead to fractures, amputations, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even fatalities. One of the most devastating injuries to sustain, however, is a traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injuries can result in loss of memory, loss of mobility, headaches, and even fatalities. Unfortunately, some fatal head injuries do not present symptoms right away. For this reason, if there is any chance that you have sustained a head injury in your accident, it is important to get checked out by a doctor at an emergency room right away. Even if you do not have any symptoms, it is important to rule out traumatic brain injury immediately. If you have sustained this type of injury, getting life-saving treatment in time is vital.

Getting Help After a Traffic Collision

Getting behind the wheel is the most dangerous thing we do every day. When we approach intersections, especially, we are risking a great deal and we rely on correctly functioning traffic signals as well as the safe driving of other drivers. When other drivers are distracted, in a hurry, or driving negligently and running red lights, serious traffic accidents are the unfortunate result. An intersection accident can permanently affect your life, leave you with mobility issues, or cost you the life of a loved one.
