An intersection is a three or four-way road junction where motorists, truckers, pedestrians, and bicyclists cross paths. Since intersections can be difficult to go through, they are often the main setting for most car accidents. Here at Hernandez Law, we often see drivers sustain serious and life-threatening injuries when involved in an intersection car accident. Intersections are complex, and so are their cases. If you have been involved in an intersection car accident, and have sustained injuries, contact our legal team to get the justice you deserve.
Most Common Types of Intersection Car Accidents
These crashes occur when a driver runs a red light or makes a reckless left turn. These crashes are probably the most confusing since they can occur in many ways, such as:
- A driver runs a red light and broadsides a driver who has the right of way.
- A driver runs a red light and is broadsided by a driver who has the right of way.
A Rear-end collision occurs when a driver fails to stop at a red light. Usually, the driver is distracted, speeding, drowsy, or impaired when approaching the intersection. The driver then hits the other motorists who are legally stopped at a red light or stop sign.
These car accidents occur when a driver’s car turns out of control and hits another car head-on. While these crashes are typically rare, divers involved in head-on collisions sustain severe and even fatal injuries.
Sideswipes often happen in intersections with multiple lanes and when two or more cars are simultaneously trying to merge into a lane. This often results in the drivers hitting roadside structures, pedestrians, and bicyclists.
