Injured In A Crash In A Dangerous Intersection?
Intersections create a unique potential for conflicts between drivers and pedestrians or bicyclists. Appropriate traffic control systems, signage and visibility are required to prevent accidents at intersections. When intersections are poorly designed, marked or maintained, accidents are inevitable.
When an accident occurs at an intersection, the lawyers of The Brandi Law Firm investigate all potential contributing factors.
Determining The Real Causes Of Collisions At Intersections
Sometimes intersections are designed with insufficient traffic controls, or crosswalks are created by traffic planners in places where oncoming cars cannot see them.
Other times, a once well-designed intersection may have become a road hazard with the passage of time, such as when the crosswalk’s paint becomes so worn that drivers approaching the intersection cannot see it or when increased traffic necessitates a dedicated left-turn lane.
When we handle motor vehicle accidents that occurred in intersections, we often seek the original intersection plans, signage and warning history, and investigate any changes that may have led to the intersections being in dangerous conditions.
