Effective Intersection Accident Representation For The Injured
Our traffic control systems rely heavily on intersections — managed by traffic lights and stop signs — to keep traffic flowing and protect drivers, passengers and pedestrians. When drivers are inattentive, reckless or otherwise negligent, accidents happen that often results in serious and catastrophic injuries.
If you or a loved one has been hurt in an intersection accident, it is important to realize that you have rights, which may include the ability to obtain financial compensation from a personal injury claim to cover damages, including medical bills and lost wages.
At Isenberg & Hewitt, PC, in Atlanta, we have more than 25 years of personal injury experience and serve as strong advocates for injury victims and their families. You can rely on us for attentive personal service and representation focused on achieving the best possible settlement or verdict.
Causes Of Intersection Car Wrecks
In a study commissioned by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), it was found that intersection accidents are most commonly caused by:
- Distractions inside and outside of the vehicle
- Inadequate assessment of surroundings
- Speeding/driving too fast for present conditions
- Aggressive driving
- Turns with obstructed view
- Illegal driving maneuvers
The Governor’s Office Of Highway Safety In Georgia notes that due to these and other causes, between 2008 and 2012, more than 300 people (on average) in Georgia were killed in traffic accidents involving intersections. This accounts for nearly one-quarter of all traffic fatalities that occurred during that same span of time.
