Common Causes of Intersection Accidents

Speeding is a common cause of intersection accidents. Lights at busy intersections can take a long time to change and drivers often ‘rush to make the light’ to avoid waiting through another cycle. As a result, they end up rear-ending or T-boning other vehicles. The excessive speed also makes these accidents more dangerous and they often result in serious injury.

Here are some common types of intersection accidents that occur due to speeding or other types of negligence.

  • Following too closely
  • Erratic or improper lane changes
  • Prohibited passing and merging
  • Sudden changes in speed
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Disobeying traffic signs or signals
  • Improper turning
  • Distractions like Texting and Driving

Determining Fault at an Intersection Accident

If you were involved in an intersection accident, it’s essential to establish who or what was at fault for causing the collision. This way you know who to target for compensation. Any of the following can be used as evidence:

  • A police report: It’s important to make sure the police are called to the accident to file a report. This is an important piece of evidence.
  • CCTV footage from a nearby business: If a nearby business’s security camera picks up footage of the accident, it can be used to establish liability.
  • Video or photos of the accident: Today, almost everyone carries a cell phone. Pictures and videos can be used to record what happened and can later be used to target at-fault parties.
  • Witness statements: If you were involved in a car accident, it’s important to collect contact info from all the witnesses at the scene. Even though this testimony is not as reliable as photos and video, it can still be used to help you build a strong case.
  • Vehicle maintenance records: If the accident occurred because a car malfunctioned due to poor maintenance or equipment, the manufacturer or service person may be at fault
  • Vehicle Black Box Footage: Some cars have a black box installed. These are crash-resistant devices that can record the moments leading up to an accident to help investigators determine what happened.
  • Blood alcohol and drug tests: These are used to determine whether the drivers involved in the accident were intoxicated

Florida is a Comparative Fault State

When an intersection accident occurs, there is often more than one car involved.

Florida is a comparative fault state. This means that the compensation each driver is eligible to receive is reduced by the percentage to which they were at fault for the accident.

So, for instance, if the total amount of damages is $100,000, but the court finds that you are 25% at fault for the accident, you will only be eligible to receive $75,000.
