How Frequently Do Accidents Occur At Intersections? Accidents Occur At Intersections

According to the US Department of Transportation, there was an average of 9,550 deadly intersection accidents per year from 2013 through 2017. In fact, 21% of all fatal crashes happen at or near intersections.

An intersection is one of the most common places for a car accident to happen. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that roughly 40% of all motor vehicle accidents occur at intersections.

There are several reasons why intersections are so dangerous, including:

  1. Traffic: Intersections facilitate heavy traffic flow. With so many cars stopping, starting and turning, drivers must be extremely diligent to identify when they must yield and when they have the right-of-way.
  2. Cars turning in opposite directions: When traffic lanes converge at an intersection, many times cars on opposite sides are turning in opposite directions. Drivers must be cautious, appropriately yield, and be spatially aware, or they could be involved in a sideswipe accident.
  3. Speeding: Speeding is one of the most common causes of accidents. Intersections and traffic lights force drivers to come to a complete stop. Accidents at intersections often result from a negligent driver not slowing down in time and causing a rear-end accident.
  4. Pedestrians: Drivers must be aware of pedestrians crossing the street at intersections. If a person is in a crosswalk, the driver must yield.

What Are The Main Causes of Intersection Accidents?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration attributes 96% of intersection-related crashes to driver error.

Some of the most common causes of intersection accidents include:

  1. Failure to yield the right-of-way;
  2. Failure to stop at a stop sign;
  3. Failure to stop at a red light;
  4. Confusing and improperly marked intersections;
  5. Following too closely; and
  6. Improper lane changing.

Often, accidents that occur at or near an intersection are caused by a driver being negligent. In order to succeed in an intersection accident negligence case, you must:

  1. Demonstrate that the other driver breached their duty of care by behaving negligently, carelessly or recklessly;
  2. Prove that you suffered a verifiable physical injury; and
  3. Establish that the other driver’s negligent behavior was the cause of your injuries.

While it may seem simple enough to prove that you suffered an injury, it can sometimes be difficult to collect admissible evidence to prove that the other driver was in fact the cause of the harm you suffered.
