Most Common Causes of Intersection Accidents

As with most accidents, intersection accidents are typically caused by driver error. Unfortunately, this makes them entirely avoidable. The lapse in attention or judgment required to cause an intersection accident only needs to be a couple of seconds. These vital seconds can be the difference between life and death for many drivers.

Common forms of driver negligence that cause intersection accidents include:

  • Driving while under the influence of drugs/alcohol
  • Following too closely (tailgating)
  • Speeding and/or reckless driving
  • Running a red light
  • Changing lanes in an intersection
  • Distracted driving, including texting while driving
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Making a left turn across traffic
  • Driving too fast for conditions

The injuries caused by intersection accidents—and their aftereffects—are the worst part of any accident. Depending on the site of impact and the relative speed of both vehicles, the resulting injuries can vary. Head-on and T-bone intersection collisions can cause injuries like whiplash, neck trauma, organ damage, lacerations, contusions, broken jaw, broken arm or leg (on the side of impact), lost teeth, crushed limbs, spinal damage, paralysis, broken ribs, and even death.
