Stockton Accident Lawyer Helps Those Who Have Been Injured in a Car Accident
Accidents that take place at intersections are some of the most dangerous and damaging that occur on California roads. The nature of an intersection, multiple lanes of traffic flowing in different directions, sets the stage for dangerous and deadly head-on collisions, “T Bone” accidents, and high speed rear-end collisions. These accidents cause serious injuries, especially neck, back and brain injuries. If you have been in an accident at a red light or a stop sign, it is important that you address the situation immediately, as proving fault and liability at an intersection can be difficult.
Causes of Red Light and Stop Sign Collisions
- A driver attempts to make it through the intersection on the yellow light but fails to make it in time, entering the intersection during the red and crashing into an automobile, motorcycle, or pedestrian entering the intersection on their green light
- Bad weather conditions including fog, rain or snow prevent drivers approaching the intersection from seeing the signal and or sign
- A vehicle passes a red light or stop sign due to driver inattention, recklessness, or the influence of drugs and alcohol
- A driver who is lawfully in the intersection attempting to make a left turn after yielding is unable to exit the intersection until their signal turns red as another driver accelerates attempting to get a jump on the light, crashing into the car making the left hand turn.

The collection and preservation of evidence are critical to these cases because they often end up being classic “he said, she said” cases where determining and proving liability is difficult. One should always remember that drivers and insurance companies will both attempt to deny fault and liability. Insurance companies are in the business of making money, not the business of paying out claims.
