Pedestrian Intersections

Our attorneys understand that when you combine high volumes of vehicle traffic with large numbers of pedestrians, accidents are bound to happen. Yet some Florida intersections have been found to be especially unsafe. Unsafe speed, violation of traffic signals and signs, driver violations of pedestrian right-of-way, and improper turning are among the most common causes of collision at all intersections. Unsafe intersections may have other issues as well.

What Makes an Intersection Unsafe?

Many factors can by themselves or in conjunction with other conditions make an intersection a dangerous place. Perhaps the intersection was constructed or designed improperly. Perhaps it was uncontrolled (had no stop or yield signs at all) or lacked a merging lane. It might have lacked signs required for adequate safety, or a clearly designated and marked turning lane. In some cases, pedestrians lack sufficient time to safely cross a street due to improper fazing of the traffic signals. Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate your accident. We will interview witnesses, review the traffic collision report, analyze the accident history of the intersection and take photos of the scene of the accident to determine whether your accident was caused, in part, by an unsafe intersection.

Claims Against the Government

Injuries resulting from unsafe intersections may require the filing of a claim against the state or city responsible for the unsafe condition. Please don't delay. Cases that involve claims against a government agency have strict deadlines. Failure to meet these deadlines can result in the loss of your right to seek compensation.
