Whether you regularly drive through a chaotic intersection or you find yourself in the middle of a dangeorus situation due to a busy crossing, you need to think about the unique hazards associated with these locations. Sometimes, dangerous intersections involve different highways where drivers travel at a high rate of speed or they are located in very busy areas, such as an urban center. Moreover, intersections are often particularly dangerous when many pedestrians and bicyclists cross as well.

If you are involved in a wreck at an intersection, it is often very hard to respond to the accident due to angry drivers and many vehicles. Make sure you protect yourself and gather relevant information and evidence to support your case if you decide to file suit (such as finding support from those who witnessed the collision).

Reviewing the risks associated with intersections

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 61 people died in accidents at intersections in Connecticut during 2018. Sometimes, accidents occur at intersections because drivers run red lights, drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or drivers use their phones behind the wheel. Even when all drivers care about traffic safety guidelines and do their best to obey laws at intersections, there is still the risk of an accident (especially in certain areas). For example, some intersections are very complex and drivers who are inexperienced or unfamiliar with a particular intersection sometimes cause crashes.

Reviewing the consequences of collisions that occur at intersections

From high speeds to crashes that strike the side of a vehicle, drivers and passengers are especially vulnerable when accidents occur at intersections. Many lives are lost in these crashes and these wrecks often lead to serious injuries. Many victims struggle with financial hardships, immobility, pain and emotional trauma. If an accident occurred because of a driver’s carelessness, explore your legal options.
