According to the National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey (NMVCCS), around 40 percent of car accidents occur at intersections. Of these, 96 percent are a direct result of action or inaction on the part of drivers. Only 3 percent of intersection car accidents are caused by factors such as defective roadways or vehicle malfunction.
The most common cause of intersection car accidents is failure to obey traffic signals or signs. This may be a result of distracted driving, intoxication, speeding, or any number of negligent behaviors, but the end result is all too often serious or fatal injury. If you or a loved one has been involved in an intersection car accident, California personal injury attorney Mikey Fine is here to take your case and help you get the full compensation you are due.

Causes of Intersection Car Accidents
The NMVCCS reports that the leading causes of car accidents at intersections are:
- Inadequate attention
- False assumption of another driver’s actions
- Obstructed view
- Illegal maneuver
- Driver distraction
- Misjudgment of gap or another driver’s speed
These causes often indicate singular responsibility for an accident. However, without an experienced car accident attorney on your side, you may never see even a fraction of what you are owed.
