Car Accidents in New Jersey
Vehicle wrecks continue to be one of the leading causes of injuries and death in the state of New Jersey. Each year, countless people are hospitalized with traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and internal organ injuries due to traffic accidents. Unfortunately, many of these accidents take place at busy intersections in our state.
There are many reasons why accidents happen at intersections. One leading cause is driver error. This includes things like running red lights or stop signs, making improper turns, or failing to yield the right-of-way. Other times, it’s simply a matter of not paying attention and not seeing the other vehicle coming.
Another leading cause of intersection accidents is when one driver tries to beat a yellow light and winds up T-boning another car that’s already in the intersection. This is especially dangerous because there’s often no time for either driver to react and avoid the collision.
There are some instances where weather conditions can contribute to accidents at intersections. For example, if it’s raining or snowing and visibility is reduced, it can be more difficult to see other cars approaching an intersection. Also, slick roads can make it more difficult to stop in time if another car suddenly appears in front of you.
