Nothing is worse than being involved in an auto accident, especially one that leads to serious injuries. Auto accidents can happen for a wide range of reasons and in a variety of circumstances, but one of the most common types of auto accidents we see is intersection collisions. Unfortunately, these are also among the most devastating types of accidents. Please continue reading and reach out to our seasoned Jacksonville auto accident attorneys to learn more about intersection collisions and how our firm can help if you’ve been hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What makes intersection collisions so dangerous?

Intersection collisions typically occur when one car goes straight through a red or yellow-turning-red light and slams into another car going through a green light. Typically, this results in what’s known as a “T-bone” crash, because the cars will roughly form the shape of a T. That said, when cars hit each other head-on, the front of the car will typically crumple and the airbag will deploy, giving the driver some protection. Unfortunately, however, when a driver or passenger is hit in a T-bone accident, they typically have very little protection from the accident (even if the vehicle is equipped with side airbags), and devastating injuries can occur as a result.
