How Common Are Intersection Collisions in NYC?

There are few things worse than sustaining an injury in a car accident. Unfortunately, people are critically injured in these accidents every single day here in New York City. There is a wide range of ways in which we see car accidents occur. Rear-end accidents are the most common, but head-on collisions and T-bone crashes are also very common. Most of these side-striking accidents occur at intersections. Please continue reading and speak with a seasoned Manhattan car accident lawyer to learn more about intersection collisions in NYC and how our legal team can assist you if you’ve been wrongfully injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do most intersection collisions happen?

Intersection collisions can occur for a wide range of reasons, including inclement weather conditions that prevent motorists from stopping on time, faulty car parts, or just careless driving in general. That said, the majority of accidents at intersections happen when one car going straight through a red light strikes another motorist who is going straight at the same intersection while going through a green light. In many cases, this results in the driver running the red light slamming head-on into the side of another vehicle, forming a “T.” Cars offer very little protection on their door sides, so often, passengers or drivers are severely injured when struck. If you were injured due to no fault of your own, you may qualify for compensation. Our firm can help.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in New York State?

In New York State, in most cases, you will have to file your personal injury claim within three years of the date of your accident. Waiting longer than this will likely result in you permanently losing your right to sue.
