Most intersections have stop lights, stop signs and traffic lights to guide traffic safely through them. But that doesn’t stop accidents from happening. Distracted drivers, speeding, miscalculation of distance and speed can all contribute to intersection accidents. If you’ve been involved in an accident while attempting to cross an intersection, Hinkle Law Offices can help.
What Are Common Intersection Accidents?
Head-on collisions and rear-end collisions usually take place on a straight road or in the middle of traffic. Intersections lead to two different kinds of collisions—side and intersectional, also known as “T-bone hits.” Side collisions are where a car will swing into another’s lane, usually trying to change lanes or merge, and slam into the side of another car. People who don’t check their blind spot and change lanes without checking cause these accidents.
“T-bone hits” are when the front of one car collides with the side of another car. It usually happens when a car takes a left turn at an intersection without checking for oncoming traffic. The car in the left turning lane is almost always the car that’s been hit, usually because the driver didn’t pause to wait for a light or didn’t check for oncoming traffic.
