Charlotte Intersection Accident Attorneys

Request a Free Consultation with Our Experienced Legal Team

In cities and suburban areas with a high volume of traffic, intersection accidents frequently occur. Pedestrians, distracted motorists, speeding drivers, lack of turn signals, poor signage, and confusing roads can all contribute to intersection collisions. These types of car accidents can result in ongoing medical bills, missed work for an extended period of time, and financial burdens can be quite overwhelming.

Common causes of intersection collisions include:

  • Running a red light or a stop sign
  • Making a right or left turn without making sure the intersection is clear of other vehicles
  • Failing to pay attention to stop signs and traffic signals

If you have been injured in an intersection accident, our Charlotte personal injury attorneys at Price, Petho & Anderson can help. With more than $200 million recovered on behalf of our clients, we understand what it takes to build an effective and personalized case to get the best results possible. We can evaluate your case, determine who caused your accident, and guide you through the intricacies of the legal system.

Determining Liability in Intersection Accidents

Fault is an important issue in any car accident case, but it is often contested in intersection collisions. Even if the other party admits fault, his/her story could change to say you were partially at fault to avoid paying damages.

North Carolina is a contributory negligence state, which means that you won’t be able to recover anything if you are found partially (even if it’s one percent) at fault for the accident. For this reason, it is imperative to gather and preserve evidence of liability as soon as possible and discuss the accident with an attorney to determine all of your available legal options.

Remember, insurance companies are in the business of protecting their bottom line and finding ways to either deny your entire claim or substantially reduce it. Any statement you make to the insurance adjuster can be used against you, which is why having a skilled lawyer on your side can help you avoid the pitfalls of car accident claims.

Ready to Protect Your Rights Today

Intersection accident claims are typically complicated in nature. In many cases, it is difficult to determine which driver is liable, especially when both vehicles seem to enter the intersection at the same time.

Our Charlotte car accident attorneys know what to look for when investigating your collision and will meticulously analyze the evidence. We are prepared to fight for your entitled compensation with insurance companies throughout every step of the process until you get the settlement you deserve.
