Intersection collisions are among the most dangerous, accounting for more than half of all serious injuries and a quarter of all fatalities on the road. Left-hand turns account for nearly a quarter of all intersection collisions. According to the Federal Highway Administration, nearly 2.5 million car accidents occur at intersections each year, accounting for more than 40% of all recorded car crashes in the United States, demonstrating the seriousness of the problem.

The pain of losing a loved one, especially if the accident was caused by another driver’s negligence, can be unbearable, and those who are close to the victim will almost certainly suffer as well. Wrongful death cases frequently result in substantial financial losses for families, both now and in the future, necessitating the assistance of an experienced Newport wrongful death lawyer.
