Long Island has some high-traffic roads—Jericho Turnpike, Sunrise Highway, Middle Country Road, Rte. 110 and Old Country Road to name a few—and the most common accidents on these roads happen at intersections. Cars race through red lights or stop signs, turn left into oncoming traffic, fail to yield before making a right on red or break suddenly to avoid a red light ticket. It’s not just cars—pedestrians crossing against the light, bicyclists ignoring traffic laws or trucks making wide turns all cause accidents.
If you are in an intersection accident, it is important to get to a safe place, call the police and take care of any medical needs.
These accidents can lead to serious injuries, including broken bones, whiplash, neck and spine injuries and concussions. Airbags can cause serious burns, bruises and facial injuries as well.
