Intersection crashes can be incredibly dangerous
Likely the most dangerous type of car accident at an intersection is a T-bone or broadside crash – the front of one vehicle slams into the side of another. While the front and rear of your car provide significant protection in the event of a collision, the side is just a few inches of metal between the other car and your body. That’s why T-bone collisions often result in serious and even fatal injuries.
It's also possible to be rear-ended while slowing or stopping at an intersection, sideswiped by someone maneuvering recklessly through the intersection, or even hit head-on by someone proceeding the wrong way through an intersection. Often, distracted driving is to blame, or someone might be driving aggressively to beat a yellow light.
Either way, many intersections are car accident hotspots. In Buffalo, some of the most dangerous intersections include:
- Parkside Ave & Linden Ave
- Delaware Ave & Niagara Square
- Michigan Ave & Clinton St
- Jefferson Ave & William St
- Jefferson Ave & Broadway
- Harlem Rd & Maryvale Dr
- Herman St & Sycamore St
Why you need an experienced attorney for an intersection accident
To win your case after a car accident, you need to prove two main elements: liability (that is, someone was at fault for the crash), and damages (that is, your financial losses).
In an intersection accident case, liability is often disputed. Intersections are confusing places, and the right of way can come down to a split-second difference. Unfortunately, witnesses may disagree on what they saw, and physical evidence may be unclear. One key reason to hire an attorney is that we can investigate the accident and piece together exactly what happened. We are adept at cross-referencing stories, analyzing evidence, and when necessary, hiring the right experts to reconstruct the accident.
We also put in the effort to calculate your full damages and advocate for maximum compensation. The insurance company may downplay the extent of your injuries, especially if the crash happened at a relatively low speed. We know how to gather medical records, document lost income, and make the case for compensation for other losses like pain and suffering.
Remember, you only get one shot at full compensation for your intersection accident, so you need to make it count. Put experience on your side. Contact a Buffalo intersection accident lawyer with a winning track record. Past outcomes do not guarantee future results.
