Tupelo Car Accidents at Intersections and Stoplights

Motor vehicle accidents often occur at intersections and stoplights. In fact, research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that approximately 40% of all motor vehicle accidents that occur in the United States are intersection-related. This means that those who frequently travel though cities like Tupelo, Mississippi, where there are many intersections and stoplights, are at a high risk of being involved in an intersection accident. If you have been involved in a car accident at an intersection or stoplight, the Tupelo car accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz are here to guide you through the legal process. Our firm has been helping injured accident victims for over 30 years, and we want to use that experience to help you obtain recovery for your losses.

Establishing Your Claim for a Car Accident at an Intersection or Stoplight

In order for you to recover for your injuries and other losses as a motor vehicle accident victim, you will generally have to show that the responsible party was negligent in causing your damages. Once you establish your negligence claim, you can then look to the at-fault driver, and that driver’s insurance company, to recover for losses like property damage, lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and possibly more.

When trying to establish a claim for negligence under Mississippi law, it is helpful to know how and why the accident occurred. There are many reasons that a car accident may occur at an intersection or stoplight in Tupelo or Lee County. Frequently, these accidents happen because a driver is not paying attention to their surroundings while making a turn at the intersection. Another common scenario is a driver who collides with another vehicle while trying to “beat the light.” Less frequent, but perhaps more dangerous, are accidents that happen because a light is malfunctioning and one or more drivers do not have the experience or knowledge necessary to safely handle the situation.

No matter how your auto accident happened, you can rely on the skills of our experienced car accident attorneys to help you find the proof you need to assert your case. Police reports are often valuable sources of information about how an accident happened, who was involved, and whether the drivers had insurance. Statements or testimony from witnesses are another way to establish the facts of a car accident. Even if no police report is made and there are no witnesses, our attorneys may still be able to obtain phone records, commercial driving logs, or other information to help put the pieces together.
