Why do intersection accidents happen?
In many cases, collisions occur at intersections because one of the drivers did something they should not have done. Such reckless or negligent behavior can cover a wide range, including:
- Running a red light.
- Not stopping at a stop sign.
- Failing to yield the right of way.
- Failing to check for oncoming traffic when making a left turn.
- Texting while driving, even though it’s against the law in Texas.
- Other forms of distracted driving, such as talking on a cellphone or programming a GPS.
- Speeding through an intersection.
- Drunk driving.
- Fatigued driving.

What are common intersection accidents?
Intersection accidents can cover a wide range. Some of the most common types of collisions include:
- Left-turn accidents – These collisions often occur when a driver turns left at an intersection without looking. As a result, the turning driver crashes head-on into an on-coming vehicle.
- Head-on collisions – One of the most serious – and most common – intersection accidents.
- T-bone or side-impact accidents – These crashes often occur when a driver runs a red light or stop sign, isn’t paying attention, or simply drives through an intersection right into the side of another vehicle.
Who is at fault in an intersection accident?
It’s not always clear who was at fault. Another driver may have been negligent by speeding, texting, ignoring traffic signals, or falling asleep at the wheel. But negligent drivers often deny doing anything wrong and refuse to accept responsibility. They may even try to blame you for what happened.
Our firm investigates your accident to get the facts. Our legal team gathers evidence, such as video from traffic cameras. We carefully review accident reports and medical records, and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts. We know how to build a strong case that proves the other driver was at fault.
