Numerous different accident types can occur at an intersection, the most common being a T-bone collision, where the front-end of one car crashes into the side of another. However, this is not the only type of accident that can occur; left-hand turn accidents, right-hand turn accidents (which often involve cyclists or pedestrians), rear-end collisions, and head-on crashes are all possible, too.
While these crash types may be very different, they all have something in common: they are the result of negligence. Acts of negligence that lead to collisions include distracted driving, failing to yield/running a red light or stop sign, driving while drunk, speeding, tailgating, and driving aggressively. When a driver commits an act of negligence that leads to a crash, the driver should be held liable for damages that result.
Some intersection collisions happen at high speeds, which increases the amount of force involved; others involve vehicle collision angles that are dramatic and severe; and yet others involve those with few protections – motorcyclists, cyclists, and pedestrians. When these accidents happen, injuries may be tragic. Common injuries seen in intersection crashes include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, facial injuries, bone fracture injuries, internal injuries, and soft tissue injuries. It is not uncommon for injuries incurred to be fatal.
If you or a loved one is harmed in an intersection crash, recovering compensation will depend on fault for the accident and the type and value of insurance coverage available. In Texas, at-fault drivers are responsible for paying for the accidents that they cause, typically through their liability insurance. In order to establish fault, a thorough investigation into the accident must take place that seeks to explain what both parties were doing at the time of the crash and how the crash occurred. Types of evidence that may be helpful include, but are not limited to, eyewitness testimony, vehicle event data recorder information, physical evidence (like skid marks and damage to vehicles), the opinion of an accident reconstruction expert, and more.
Our lawyers can help you to gather the evidence that you need to prove that your accident would not have occurred but for the actions of the responsible driver. We can also assist you in proving the extent of your damages, building your claim, and negotiating for a fair settlement amount. If necessary, we are proud of our reputation in the courtroom, and can litigate on your behalf.
