Intersections are some of the most dangerous places on our roads where serious accidents take place every year. In just one recent year’s time, over 2.5 million intersection accidents took place due to the reckless acts of others in the U.S. These accidents take on many forms but a wide array involve hit-and-run drivers. These accidents are especially dangerous because victims do not always get immediate medical help after a collision. This means that you could be suffering from especially severe injuries and could need the assistance of a legal advocate.
