The Dynamics of Intersection Vehicle Accidents

Intersection accidents occur when two or more vehicles, cyclists, or pedestrians cross paths within the same space. These incidents can include rear-end collisions, side-impact crashes, and accidents involving pedestrians. The outcomes can range from minor fender-benders to severe, life-altering injuries, including:

  • Head injuries
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Internal injuries
  • Soft tissue injures
  • Broken bones, including compound fractures
  • Crushing injuries
  • Back and spinal cord injuries
  • Fatalities

Common Causes of Intersection Accidents

On Florida’s roads, common causes of intersection accidents include the following.

  • Running Red Lights and Stop Signs: Drivers who ignore traffic signals contribute significantly to T-bone collisions, which can be particularly dangerous due to the side impact.
  • Distracted Driving: Texting, talking on the phone, or other distractions divert a driver’s attention from the road, increasing the risk of accidents, especially at intersections.
  • Speeding: Excessive speed reduces a driver’s ability to react to changing traffic conditions, making intersections perilous when drivers fail to slow down.
  • Failure to Yield: When drivers fail to yield the right of way to other vehicles or pedestrians, collisions are likely to occur.
  • Poor Visibility: Factors such as overgrown vegetation, inadequate lighting, or poorly-placed signs can hinder a driver’s ability to see oncoming traffic or pedestrians.
  • Weather Conditions: Rain, bright sun, and other common Florida weather conditions can decrease visibility and make roads slippery, increasing the likelihood of accidents.
  • Drunk Driving: Intoxicated drivers have impaired judgment and slower reaction times, making intersections particularly hazardous for them.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
