Traffic intersections were created as a means to allow vehicular commuters to travel easily to destinations that are linked through Fort Lauderdale Florida’s well-designed meeting roadways. Nevertheless, without some form of appropriate control over the intersection it is inevitable that accidents will occur since two vehicles coming from adjacent roadways that intersect cannot travel through the same intersection at the same time, simultaneously.
While as incredible as it may seem, there are still some intersections that have absolutely no traffic control device, most intersections are controlled by either a yield, or stop sign, or an electronic traffic light control device with various colored instructional lamps.
Unfortunately, even with such logically placed traffic control devices, Fort Lauderdale, Florida car, motorcycle or truck drivers still seem to collide at intersections.
And if one or both of the vehicle’s occupants suffer personal injuries and rightfully intend to seek compensation pursuant to Florida’s No Fault Laws, fault still needs to be determined. And except for those rare occasions where the wrongdoer fully accepts and admits their liability and accepts responsibility causing the accident, it may ultimately require a court of law to determine who or whom are at fault.
If the accident was witnessed and if there is a consensus of the facts from independent witnesses, then that determination is more easily assisted. If one vehicle was coming from a corner with a stop sign and the other vehicle had the “right of way” that assists the trier of fact in determining fault. Continued in Part Two in following blog
