Car Accidents at Intersections

Intersections can be dangerous when drivers fail to follow the rules of the road. Auto accidents can result when drivers are in a rush and make negligent turns or speed through traffic lights. Drivers should always approach intersections with care, especially those with crosswalks.

Massachusetts drivers have a responsibility to follow traffic signals. They must slow down for yellow lights and stop at red. They must come to a complete stop at red lights before making any turns. When there are crosswalks at intersections, drivers must stop before reaching the white line to provide pedestrians enough room to cross safely. Bicyclists are required to follow the same rules as drivers at intersections.

Traffic accidents can cause substantial property damage, serious personal injuries and wrongful death. They can be complicated to resolve and require lawyers skilled in evidence and insurance law.

If you have been injured in a Massachusetts car accident and it was caused by another driver's negligence, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages for medical bills, lost wages, injuries, scarring, pain and suffering, permanent or partial disability and loss of ability to enjoy life.

You should contact an experienced Massachusetts car accident attorney to evaluate and handle your case. All motor vehicle accidents in Massachusetts are governed by a Statute of Limitations. Some accidents may have shorter notice provisions.
