Intersections are dangerous places by their design. Two or more roads meet at a traffic light, where drivers are supposed to stop their cars and wait patiently for other vehicles or pedestrians to cross. Unfortunately, that doesn't always happen.
A driver may run a red light in order to avoid waiting to continue on their way. In their impatience, they cause car accidents and damage. These collisions are catastrophic in terms of injuries and property damage because drivers often have to speed up in order to make it past a changing yellow light. This kind of intersection accident leads to a rear-end car accident, t-bone accident, or head-on collision and quit often serious personal injuries.
Intersections are busy and confusing for people unfamiliar with a particular area. If there are pedestrians or bicyclists in the area, then it is even more dangerous. Use caution when turning right on red or doing a u-turn. People move in all directions when roads meet and the confusion may lead to a collision or car accident. If a driver fails to observe traffic laws, then they are acting negligently and you have the right to pursue damages.
