Any time you head out onto the roads, you are certain to encounter a variety of intersections: three-way intersections, four-way intersections, merges, and any other situation where two roads intersect. In many cases, intersections have traffic lights installed in order to control the flow of traffic, while in other cases there may be blinking yellow lights, yield signs, or other forms of signage or guidance to indicate who has the right of way. Responsible drivers understand that these signs or lights are to be obeyed and respected, but all too often a reckless, drunk, or distracted driver either willfully ignores or accidentally doesn’t notice that they have cut through an intersection at the wrong time.

Why Hire an Attorney After an Intersection Accident?
You Deserve a Low-Stress Recovery
Almost immediately after an accident that someone else is at fault for, you will need to file an injury claim with the other driver’s insurance company. At the same time, you must be sure to prioritize any injuries that you have sustained, getting the medical attention that you need and give them the proper rest and treatment so you are able to make a full recovery. Trying to juggle legal issues while you are trying to make sense of your injuries can be extremely frustrating, and in many cases can be overwhelming, which is just one of the many reasons why it is so important to work with an attorney through this case.
Insurance Companies Do Not Want To Pay What You Deserve
One of the unfortunate facts about any type of personal injury claim is that the insurance company who is handling your claim will find any way possible to reduce the amount of money that they ultimately pay out to you. After an intersection accident, you can be certain that your situation is no different. After the investigation of your claim has been completed, you will get an offer from the insurance company for a lump sum intended to compensate you after your accident, in exchange for signing a waiver releasing the insurance company and their client from any future legal obligations regarding this accident or your injuries.
Hire a Proven Negotiator
It might seem like the right thing to do when you are watching your medical bills mount and missed time from work start to add up, but the reality is that this offer should only be the start of negotiations. During the claims investigation, your attorney will be able to complete their own investigation into the damages that you have suffered, which they will be able to use in order to open negotiations with a counter-offer. These negotiations will go on for as long as necessary until you either reach an agreement with the insurance company or you and your attorney decide to file a lawsuit in the California courts.
