Intersections are often high collision, risky areas, since there are multiple vehicles and multiple road users -- including pedestrians, motorcyclists, truck drivers, and bicyclists -- all traveling in different directions in the same relatively small area. Intersections also often involve higher risk activities such as turns as well. As a result, intersections are often the site of car accidents.
Whether you have been injured in an intersection accident because someone has run a red light or because someone has made an illegal turn, contact Flaxman Law Group to review your situation in order to find out what can be done in your case. Depending on the specifics of your situation, you may be able to pursue legal action in order to get compensation for your injuries.Why Do So Many Car Crashes Happen at Intersections?
There are many reasons why accidents at intersections occur:
- Poor road design may mean that intersections are not correctly designed to provide smooth traffic flow
- Distracted or angry drivers may run red lights or stop signs
- Drunk drivers or distracted drivers may fail to yield right-of-way
- Pedestrians may cross the street without looking or may cross without obeying right-of-way or traffic signals
- Bicyclists may drive across the street without obeying traffic signals or lights
Sometimes, it is obvious why an accident has occurred. If a driver has run a red light, for example, it can be obvious that they are the at-fault driver. In other cases, however, poor road design may be less of an obvious reason for a car accident in Homestead. In addition, it can be difficult to prove the at-fault driver in intersection crash. The at-fault driver may allege that they didn't run a red light or may blame road design rather than distracted driving for the accident.Pursuing Justice and Compensation After a Traffic Accident
