Intersection Accidents

Intersection Accidents

Atlanta Auto Accident Attorney

Countrywide, nearly 40 percent of all car accidents occur at an intersection. This is because intersections are considered planned points of conflict. Planned points of conflict are points where opposing directions of traffic, pedestrians, and bicyclists all cross paths. Diverse traffic like this converging in one place creates the perfect environment for negligent and careless drivers to cause a collision. If you have suffered injuries from an intersection accident as a motorist, pedestrian, or cyclists, our Atlanta auto accident attorney can help you get the compensation you need.

Common Intersection Accident Causes

As mentioned above, it is far more likely to be involved in an accident while at an intersection than while driving on a highway. Below are some of the most common reasons accidents occur while in an intersection.

Distracted Driving: Distracted driving is one of the leading cause of collisions and despite it being illegal to talk and text while driving, many people still do it. Contrary to what many drivers might think, distracted driving is not limited to driving while using your cell phone, distracted driving could include the following practices:

  • Eating
  • Grooming
  • Applying makeup
  • Changing your music
  • Reading
  • Talking using your Bluetooth device

Misjudging Oncoming Car Speed: If you have ever turned at an intersection without a protected left or right, you know how stressful it can be to judge how fast oncoming cars approach. Intersection accidents that occur due to a failure to judge the speed of an approaching car can be particularly catastrophic due to the high speed of the oncoming car when it hits the other vehicle.
