Mississippi Personal Injury Lawyer and Attorney for Intersection Accidents
Almost half of all motor vehicle accidents are Intersection Accidents. An Intersection Accident is when a vehicle’s front end collides with the side of another vehicle in one of three locations: Front quarter-panel, front or rear doors or the rear quarter panel. The side of a car, truck or vehicle is the least protected area since there are no bumpers to absorb the collision. The side of the car, truck or vehicle also offers very little protection for the occupants. When a car, truck or vehicle is struck from the front, the front airbags deploy; however in a side collision they offer no protection. Only a side air bag would offer protection in this instance. A Intersection Accident can cause serious and fatal injury to an occupant.
In Mississippi Law, the motorist who comes to a stop sign must come to a complete stop. The motorist must appraise traffic in all directions and determine if it is safe to proceed. The motorist can enter the intersection only when it is safe to proceed. A motorist will be considered negligent and at fault by pulling into oncoming traffic. The driver on the favored street has the right of way. The driver who fails to stop at the stop sign or fails to assess traffic properly will be held at fault.
When a traffic signal is involved, problems usually arise in Intersection Accidents when it is not clear which driver had the green light. If there are no eyewitnesses, then it will be very difficult to prove which driver was at fault and which driver wasn’t, because both drivers may claim to have had a green light.
