Miami Intersection Accidents Attorney
Intersections are the site of many car accidents. In car accidents at intersections, car passengers, drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists can all potentially be critically injured. Many of these accidents are preventable but occur due to bad decisions made by careless drivers.
Intersection car accidents usually involve liability issues. It is not always obvious who was at fault for the wreck, and each side might dispute fault. For instance, when an intersection accident occurs, each driver might claim that the other driver had a red-light. Often, it will not possible for both drivers to have had green lights (for example, if one car was going west and the other was going north). However, it might not easy to prove who had the red light and who had the green light.
As such, Mr. Anthony Quackenbush might hire an expert witness known as an accident re-constructionist. The accident re-constructionists will look at different factors in order to attempt to verify that the other driver, rather than you, caused the accident. For instance, the accident re-constructionist may consider the timing-sequence of the intersectional lights. Each intersectional light will remain green for some time, then cycle to yellow, red, etc. An accident re-constructionist can simply retrieve these light timing sequences from the owner of the roadway. Once the accident re-constructionist does this, he or she might be able to find out which driver had the green-light and which driver had the red-light based on these light timing-sequences.

You may have a roadway construction case against the owner of the roadway/intersection if the intersectional light timing-sequences where your accident occurred were off. If the drivers heading in different directions (such as south and east) both had green lights and an intersection accident occurred as a result, then you might be able to pursue a roadway construction case against the owner of the roadway/intersection and whoever was accountable for the faulty, failing light timing-sequences at the intersection.
Also, intersections might have green turn-arrows. If the driver that hit you did so as you were following a green turn-arrow, this means that the driver did not yield the right of way to you and consequently was responsible for the accident. This Miami intersection accident attorney represents clients who have been hit by other vehicles not yielding the right of way.
Intersections might have stop-signs or red-lights. Running a stop sign is a traffic violation and, if the vehicle that hits you did this, she or he could be held legally responsible for your injuries.Client Advice and Counsel from this South Florida Intersection Crash/Wreck Attorney
It will also be important to find out if the intersection where your accident occurred had red-light cameras or not. In the State of Florida, many cities allow red-light cameras at intersections. If the intersection where your accident happened had a red-light camera, then the camera might have recorded the accident. You should get the video footage of the accident that will help you to prove the other driver’s identity. But it is important that you get the video footage of your accident as soon as possible because most of the red light cameras are on loops which means that they tape over themselves every so often.
Intersections might also exist at the merging of several roads. For instance, the intersection where your accident occurred might represent the merging of two roadways, three roadways, four roadways, etc. Collisions can easily occur as vehicles from the various roadways attempt to move into the intersection.
After an intersection accident, it will also clearly be vital to get any possible witness testimony. Intersection accidents often are witnessed by many people. If there were other people who witnessed your accident, it is crucial to get their names and contact information. Moreover, because stories change and memories fade, it is typically a good idea to get recorded witness affidavits or statements from these witnesses. This Miami intersection accident attorney can help you to win compensation for you.
