The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has revealed that approximately 36 percent of all US road accidents happen at intersections. Further, environmental factors such as dangerous roadways and vehicle equipment problems such as brake failure and tire blowout, are linked to only 3 percent of intersection accidents. This leaves a significant number of intersection accidents that are attributed to some form of driver error.
When driver error causes an intersection car accident, a person who sustains injuries or whose property is damaged may be entitled to compensation.
Contributing Factors to Intersection Accidents
In California, the most common factors that have caused intersection accidents:
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident
- Speeding, running a red light, and violating other traffic laws immediately prior to the accident
- Driver distraction such as using a cellphone or GPS shortly before the accident
If you sustained injuries in an intersection accident, your first step is to seek medical treatment for your injuries and ensure that you receive appropriate medical attention until you fully recover. At the same time, you should also be able to consult an experienced intersection car accident attorney about your legal options for claiming compensation.
