Atlanta Intersection Car Accident Lawyers


Get Help After an Intersection Collision

When a motorist, pedestrian, or bicyclist reaches an intersection, there are numerous considerations they must make in order to get through safely and without harming others. These include looking at the traffic signal and surrounding signs, taking into account the state's laws and regulations, and making the right maneuvers without heightening the risk of an accident. Usually, experienced motorists are able to make all these considerations in a moment and go through the intersection without jeopardizing the well-being of themselves and others around them. However, one slip up or act of carelessness can lead to an intersection crash, which is considered one of the most dangerous and devastating types of crashes.

At Grant Law Office, we have represented injured victims and their families and know all the struggles that can come in the aftermath of such tragic incidents. Our compassionate Atlanta car wreck attorneys fight hard to gain clients the compensation they need to move on with their lives. If you are currently dealing with the fallout of an intersection accident, please call us today at (404) 995-3955 for a free, comprehensive case review.

What are the Most Dangerous Intersections in Atlanta?

Locals call the intersection of Interstate 285 and Interstate 85 the Spaghetti Junction. Although it sports a charming colloquial name, this crossroad is notorious as being one of the most difficult to navigate in the city and is a hotspot for collisions involving inexperienced drivers. If you are not a seasoned driver, it is highly advised that you avoid the Spaghetti Junction at all costs.

The following intersections should also be avoided due to their reputation for constantly experiencing devastating crashes:

  • Bolton Road and Marietta Road
  • Campbellton Road and Barge Road
  • 10th Street and Piedmont Avenue
  • Peachtree Street and Buford Highway
  • Peachtree Street and 14th Street

A recent university study found that four-lane roads with no divider were most likely to see urban area intersection accidents, whereas four-lane roads with dividers were least likely to see intersection collision, in both urban and rural areas.

What are Common Types of Intersection Accidents?

Intersection accidents are usually caused by one of two things: (1) reckless and/or negligent motorist behavior such as speeding, drunk driving, or distracted driving, or (2) ignorance of or failure to adhere to certain right-of-way guidelines and other important road regulations. Common intersection crash scenarios include:

  • Performing a left or right turn without making sure that the intersection is clear of other vehicles, pedestrians, or bicyclists.
  • Failing to stop at a stop sign or red light.
  • Failing to regard the traffic up ahead, signal lights, or important signs.
