Sacramento Intersection Accident Attorneys
Whether you are traveling on a local street, highway, or country road, intersections are planned points of chaos. Intersection traffic collisions often result in severe injuries and even fatalities.
Each year in the United States, millions of people are killed or seriously injured due to intersection accidents. Pedestrians, motorists and bicyclists are all at an increased risk for injury or death while passing through an intersection.
Though intersections are controlled by traffic lights or signs, they become dangerous when people are negligent or reckless while driving through them. When a person fails to follow traffic laws, they can actually be held accountable for the collisions, damage, and and injuries they cause.
If you or a loved one have been injured in an intersection accident due to the negligence or recklessness of another person, you may have cause for legal action.
Causes of Intersection Accidents
Sacramento intersection accidents can happen for a wide variety of reasons. However, some of the most common reasons include
- Distracted Driving
- Driver Fatigue
- Poor intersection design
- Drunk Driving
Too many intersection crashes occur because of a person’s failing to yield to the right-of-way. In California, a person is permitted to turn right on red after coming to a complete stop, unless there is a sign stating otherwise. When the driver turns, they have to stay in the far most right hand lane and are supposed to yield to all traffic, including pedestrians and bicyclists, that are moving through the intersection. This is just one of the laws that dictates the flow of vehicle traffic through an intersection.
