Car Accident at an Intersection


Traffic that is traveling in all directions meets in intersections, which makes intersections a great place for accidents to happen. Motorists who aren’t focused on driving safely make accidents in intersections that much more likely.

If you’re injured in an intersection accident that was caused by another driver’s negligence, 388CEDA offers a full range of medical treatment and care that may help you to better travel the path toward recovery. We can also recommend an experienced car accident attorney if you ask us to do so.


Dangers in Intersections

Driving tends to reach its most dangerous heights in intersections. Consider all of the following:

  • Motorists who jump green lights and push red lights put everyone traveling through their intersections at increased risk of being injured.
  • Because left turns must cross several lanes of traffic, they are among the most dangerous traffic maneuvers of all.
  • It can be difficult for motorists to gauge the distance and speed of oncoming vehicles in intersections, and when they take a chance and simply go, it ups the danger involved.
  • Distracted drivers are becoming more and more common, and because there is so much more going on in intersections than anywhere else on the road – and so much more to pay attention to – distracted drivers are that much more dangerous in intersections.
  • Because there does tend to be a lot going on in intersections, drivers are often required to slow and/or stop suddenly. This makes intersections a hotspot for rear-end accidents (when other drivers fail to respond in kind).

Always make traveling through intersections safely your top priority and proceed with caution.


Seeking the Medical Care You Need

Intersection accidents are often quite serious, and if you’ve been injured by a negligent driver in an intersection, you’re likely to need serious medical attention. 388CEDA offers comprehensive medical care that includes all of the following:

Intersection Accidents and Driver Negligence

Accidents in intersections are often caused by driver negligence, which can take all of the following risky forms:

  • Distraction – A distracted driver is incapable of paying adequate attention to everything that is going on in the intersection, which makes him or her a likely candidate for causing an intersection accident.
  • Impairment – Impaired drivers tend to experience a decrease in judgement and a loss of impulse control. Both of these are exceptionally dangerous when it comes to driving through intersections.
  • Excess Speed – When motorists blast through intersections, they don’t allow themselves enough time to react to any obstacles in their paths (and obstacles tend to pop up in intersections).
  • Exhaustion – Drowsy drivers often have a hard time staying focused, and in order to travel safely through intersections, motorists need to remain focused.

Negotiating with the Insurance Company

In order to obtain the compensation to which you may be entitled, you may need to negotiate a settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Even if your claim is fairly straightforward, however, the insurance company may not be interested in dealing with you fairly. The bottom line is that insurance companies are for-profit businesses, and they are motivated to keep their profits healthy. Insurance companies have many strategies at the ready when it comes to keeping settlements low, including:

  • Denying claims outright in the hope that claimants will give up
  • Offering early settlements that are not even close to adequate
  • Attempting to shift blame from the at-fault drivers to the victims
  • Minimizing the extent of victims’ damages
  • Making the claims process so complicated and protracted that claimants lose hope

The insurance company, in other words, is not on your side, but an experienced car accident attorney may be able to help.
