What Is the Main Cause of Intersection Accidents?
Some intersection car accident cases involve the failure to yield the right
of way at the intersection between a private, residential, or commercial
driveway and a through-street. Other intersection collision lawsuits involve
the failure to obey stop signs, stoplights, or other traffic control devices
Many cases can also involve left-turning vehicles turning across oncoming
traffic. In such cases, depending upon the facts, the claims may involve
either failure to yield the right of way on the part of the turning vehicle,
and/or excessive speed on the part of the approaching vehicle proceeding
straight. Connecticut has statutory laws governing the right of way at
various intersections, and unexcused violations of these statutes may
be considered negligence by itself.

Who Is at Fault in an Intersection Accident?
It’s important to understand, the mere fact that the police have
ticketed one driver is not sufficient to determine who was at fault in
an intersection collision. Tickets by themselves are not binding on your
attorney, or on the courts for that matter. In fact, evidence about which
driver got a ticket is generally not admissible evidence in a civil case
to determine who was at fault for an accident.
