Car Accidents At Intersections
Car accidents in Little Rock intersections are far too common. They are one of the most dangerous places to be involved in an auto accident, especially if one vehicle is T-boned at a high rate of speed. However, many of these accidents are fairly minor rear-end accidents at low speed.
Common Causes Of Intersection Accidents
A car accident at an intersection can lead to devastating and life-changing injuries. Some of the most common reasons these serious personal injuries occur include:
- Failure to stop at traffic lights
- Failure to fully stop at red lights before turning right
- Turning right on a red signal when signs state this is illegal
- Failure to acknowledge another driver’s right of way
- Ignoring signs to yield
- Making a U-turn
Disregarding traffic regulations, assuming you can beat traffic, and neglecting to watch, not just other cars, but motorcyclists raise the risk of becoming involved in a car accident at an intersection.
Intersection Accident Injuries
Although many vehicles have side airbags, being broadsided, or T-boned, can lead to serious or even fatal injuries. It is not uncommon for victims to suffer broken bones, spinal cord and neck injuries, traumatic brain injuries, lacerations, as well as minor bumps and bruises in these kinds of auto accidents.
