There are many common causes of intersection car accidents. This might include vehicles running a red light or a stop sign. These incidents can cause a side-impact collision or head-on collision. Not paying attention to traffic lights or stop signs can result in rear-end collisions at the intersection, and making a left or right turn without checking to ensure the intersection is clear of other vehicles can also cause an accident. Intersection car accidents usually involve liability issues. This means that it is not always obvious who was responsible for the accident, and each side might dispute legal responsibility.
