New Hampshire Intersection Accident Lawyers
The purpose of intersections in New Hampshire is to balance the flow of traffic and to create an orderly progression on the streets. As such, most intersections feature many different signals, involve vehicles moving in numerous different directions, permit pedestrians to cross the street at various times, and include several other factors that are meant to control traffic of all kinds. However, because of the busy and crowded nature of intersections, auto accidents frequently occur in these areas and can cause serious injuries to those involved.
The New Hampshire intersection accident lawyers at Tenn And Tenn, P.A. understand the devastating nature of such accidents and the long-lasting impact they can have on a victim's body. Recovering from such incidents may take years and can result in skyrocketing medical bills. As such, it is important to seek dedicated legal representation and search for compensation from those responsible.
Frequent Intersection Car Accidents
Because intersections feature motor vehicles traveling in different directions at differing speeds. And with or without the aid of signs and signals, mistakes and lapses in judgment can easily cause a crash. Common intersection accidents include:
- Striking a pedestrian;
- Head-on collisions;
- Rear-end crashes;
- Sideswiping; and
- Hitting a stationary hazard.
While many of these accidents can occur at other sections of the road, intersections are especially dangerous because so many types of accidents could happen in one place. Additionally, it only takes a small area for such crashes to occur at an intersection.
There are many reasons why intersection accidents in New Hampshire occur, ranging from minor mistakes to serious negligence. Some drivers decide to operate their motor vehicles under the influence of drugs or alcohol, other drivers may be distracted and can easily cause such accidents.
Another reason why intersection crashes occur is when a vehicle is attempting to turn left. If the driver misjudges the distance and speed of approaching cars, they can easily turn into or in front of a vehicle and cause a crash. Additionally, if he or she does not notice a pedestrian, the driver could easily strike a person crossing the street. When a driver breaks the rules of the road or disregards the traffic signals, an accident can easily occur.
Intersection Collision Injuries
Because intersection crashes are often violent in nature, the occupants of the vehicles involved are subject to serious impacts which can result in severe bodily injuries. Injuries that frequently result from intersection accidents include:
- Broken and/or fractured bones;
- Traumatic brain injuries;
- Spinal cord damage;
- Sprains and strains; and
These injuries can range in severity depending on the impact of the crash. Many can have life-long effects and can result in disabilities that prevent a victim from performing work duties and day-to-day activities.
