Intersection accidents are the second most common type of traffic accident. According to the Federal Highway Administration, almost 40 percent of all accidents occur at intersections.

Causes of Accidents at Intersections
If you were hit by another vehicle when attempting to turn or drive through an intersection, you may be left with serious injuries and substantial medical expenses. When the accident was caused by the negligence of another driver or dangerous intersection, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of income.
Accidents at intersections are often caused by:
- Distracted drivers
- Failure to look for other vehicles
- Illegal driving maneuvers
- Obstructed views
- Failure to properly judge the space available for turning
You may be entitled to compensation for financial and non-economic losses that resulted from accidents at intersections. This may include medical bills, property damage, loss of income, emotional pain, and physical pain and suffering. Our Austin auto accident attorney has represented injured clients for more than 40 years. We can evaluate your accident to determine liability and the value of your claim.
Determining Liability After an Accident
In most cases, careless or reckless actions on the part of another driver are the cause of intersection accidents. However, if the intersection is poorly designed or traffic control devices are inadequate, the government entity responsible for that road may be at fault. Our Austin car accident lawyer will evaluate your claim and investigate the scene of the accident to determine liability in your specific situation.
