Common Causes of Intersection Accidents
When a driver reaches an intersection, there are many decisions he or she must make in order to get through safely and without harming others. These include acknowledging the traffic signal and surrounding signs, respecting the state’s road laws and regulations, and making the right moves that do not heighten the risk of an accident.
When a driver causes an intersection accident, it is usually due to one of two things:
- Reckless and/or negligent motorist behavior such as speeding, distracted driving or drunk driving; or
- Ignorance or failure to follow right-of-way guidelines and other important laws.
Common intersection accident scenarios include making a turn without first checking to see if the intersection is clear of other cars, pedestrians, and/or bicyclists. Other scenarios are failing to stop at a red light or stop sign; and failing to watch the surroundings.
In a civil case, the plaintiff has the burden of proving the facts and claims in the complaint. The victim must be able to display evidence that establishes the liability and/or negligence of the other driver. Victory Law Group, LLP can conduct an investigation of the circumstances surrounding your auto collision to find evidence that supports your claim, which may include
- Witness statements
- Traffic camera photos and video footage and/or
- Expert testimony from accident reconstruction specialists and medical professionals. We will use the evidence to get our clients the maximum amount of compensation.
