Intersection Accidents in Mississippi
The need to control intersection traffic through the use of signs and signals has been around much longer than the modern automobile. Large cities and railways used gas-powered lights during the 1860s, and, by 1914, electric signals had been installed.
The driver who disregarded the road sign, traffic light, or driving law will most likely be found at fault for any damages sustained during an intersection accident. Determining who is liable for an intersection crash typically requires an in-depth investigation into the events surrounding the impact.
In order to determine which driver was responsible for the collision, law enforcement, insurance carriers, and other involved parties need to accurately establish which driver acted negligently and which had the right of way.
Some of the most common causes of intersection accidents in Mississippi include drivers who:
- Fail to stop at stop signs
- Do not wait their turn at four-way stops
- Run red lights
- Fail to yield when making a lefthand turn on green
- Fail to look for oncoming traffic when making a right on red
Following any traffic collision with significant injuries or property damage, there will be an investigation into the circumstances that were present when it occurred. Police officers responding to the scene will take the first steps toward working out what happened, and ultimately deciding which driver broke which laws.
