People run stop signs, hurry through intersections to beat red lights, and don't look carefully when entering an intersection. For these reasons, intersection accidents are quite common.

Types of Intersection Accidents
Almost any type of motor vehicle accident can occur at an intersection:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bus accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Distracted driver accidents
- Rear-end accidents
- Head-on collisions
- Accidents caused by drunk drivers
One of the most common accidents in an intersection is a "T-bone" accident, wherein one car runs into the side of another car at a 90-degree angle. In T-bone accidents, one of the parties is almost always clearly at fault.
This is important because North Carolina is one of only four contributory negligence states, meaning a plaintiff who is found to be even 1 percent at fault cannot recover damages from the other party in a motor vehicle accident personal injury claim.
Our attorneys research our clients' cases diligently. We leave no stone unturned as we examine every piece of evidence available to work to establish fault beyond doubt.
