A motor vehicle collision at an intersection can cause considerable property damage, minor injuries, or life-threatening wounds. Although the dynamics of every car crash are unique, common injuries incurred as a result of an intersection accident include:
On an annual basis, the Federal Highway Administration (FHA) reports roughly 2.5 million accidents in intersections. A considerable percentage of these collisions involve a left turn. Across the country, an estimated 40% of all auto vehicle collisions involve intersections. This makes intersection collisions the second-most frequent type of car collision, following rear-end accidents. Up to half of significant collisions and 20% of fatal crashes occur during this type of accident.
Intersection-related crashes may be deadlier than other collisions for a number of reasons. Distracted, impaired, or reckless drivers may run a red light at a high speed, leading to a serious crash that causes catastrophic injuries. An intersection may have confusing signage, malfunctioning traffic signals, or faded markings that cause drivers to make out-of-character mistakes. Particularly when a vehicle is in the middle of an intersection waiting to make a safe left turn, there is an enhanced risk of a T-bone accident.
Intersection car collisions are often caused or influenced by careless, distracted, or intoxicated motorists. There are a variety of negligent and reckless acts that can lead to intersection accidents, including:
Even when drivers approaching an intersection are not traveling at high speeds, intersection accidents can still result in devastating injuries that leave drivers, passengers, or pedestrians with long-term medical needs.
