Your legal rights after an automobile accident at an intersection depend on what happened in the accident. A large percentage of automobile accidents occur at intersections – it’s been estimated that 40 percent of all automobile accidents occur at intersections.
There are a number of types of intersection accidents. Some involve automobiles making U-turns. Some occur because one vehicle ran a stoplight or a stop sign. Many accidents involve one vehicle turning at an intersection. Also, intersections in rural areas can be particularly dangerous, because of the speeds of the vehicles in those areas.
What will happen after an intersection accident depends on what caused the accident. If another driver was to blame for the accident because of speeding, driving while intoxicated or distracted, or failing to obey the rules of the road, you may be able to seek compensation from the other driver’s insurance company.
