Accidents at intersections can happen for a number of reasons. In Dallas and Carrollton, Attorney Goolsby has handled cases involving crashes that occur because drivers fail to stop for red lights or for stop signs. He knows that reckless drivers may speed as they approach an intersection, making it impossible to stop if conditions require it. Excessive speed also can mean more serious injuries in intersection collisions. Other factors can contribute to intersection crashes:

  • Poor visibility due to foliage or other obstacles
  • Brake failure or other mechanical problems
  • Issues with the road surface, including poor maintenance
  • Improper use of traffic control methods
  • Failure of traffic signals
  • Poor road design
  • Weather or other environmental conditions
  • Driver impairment
  • Speeding
  • Careless or distracted driving
